HP-UX 11.31 make_tape_recovery make_medialif error

HI Gurus!

 

I have a problem running "make_tape_recovery" on my newly installed HP-UX PA server.

Server is patched to the newest release.

Ignite-UX Revision C.7.13.240.

I'm running "make_tape_recovery -i" and then i interactively select options: entire vg00, tar archive...

I've got 15 GB of free space on /var.

Tape was used previously for backup but i think Ignite-UX should overwrite it.

Backing up older HP-UX 11.11 and 11.31 with same type of tape and drive was successful

Re: HP-UX 11.31 make_tape_recovery make_medialif error

Me again...

 

i realized that on this system the DDS tape is not recognized:

 

ioscan -fnC tape
Class     I  H/W Path     Driver S/W State   H/W Type     Description
=====================================================================
tape      0  0/1/1/1.3.0  stape   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      C7438A
                         /dev/rmt/0m            /dev/rmt/0mn                          /dev/rmt/c3t3d0BEST         /dev/rmt/c3t3d0BESTn
                         /dev/rmt/0mb          /dev/rmt/0mnb                       /dev/rmt/c3t3d0BESTb       /dev/rmt/c3t3d0BESTnb

 

 

On the older systems (where the Ignite-UX works) the output is like:

 

ioscan -fnC tape
Class     I  H/W Path     Driver S/W State   H/W Type     Description
=====================================================================
tape      0  0/1/1/1.3.0  stape   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      C7438A
                        /dev/rmt/0m             /dev/rmt/0mn                           /dev/rmt/c3t3d0BESTn       /dev/rmt/c3t3d0DDSb

                        /dev/rmt/0mb           /dev/rmt/c3t3d0dBEST          /dev/rmt/c3t3d0BESTnb     /dev/rmt/c3t3d0DDSn

                        /dev/rmt/0mn           /dev/rmt/c3t3d0BESTb          /dev/rmt/c3t3d0DDS           /dev/rmt/c3t3d0DDSnb

 

I did not find differences in configurations, only in versions:

System that works:          HP-UX 11.11, Ignite-UX Revision B.5.1.33

System that don't work:   HP-UX 11.31, Ignite-UX Revision C.7.13.240

 

Is there any driver for HP-UX 11.31 to support DDS tapes?

Thanks in advance.
