tapeutil on hpux

I want to write a file to a SCSI-Tape using tapeutil on HPUX11i.
The command "tapeutil -f /dev/rmt/170m -w 1 -o wri -b 65535 -n 1 -m 100 -v" works fine, but if I add the Flag "-z file" I get a core dump.
How can I determine the file to be written to tape?

Re: tapeutil on hpux

I am using the atdd (advanced tape device driver), an IBM-tool, because originally I want to write to an IBM-Tapelibrary and have problems with poor performance. So I am testing a local SCSI-Tape and I hope, that I will get a good performance locally and with this knowledge I can make the Tapelibrary-Performance better. Only tapeutil can write to this device, don't know why.
