http://www.docs.hp.com/en/5992-0598/5992-0598.pdf , there is no support for "Native Tape boot" on rx2600.
You have to follow "Two step Media Recovery" method.

I can't remember the exact steps, but basically you need to boot the machine from your HPUX Install Media CD/DVD.
Then, following the GUI, you can select an option to recover the OS from tape and specify the target disk etc.
It is fairly intuitive, but I can't remember the exact screen menu's that are presented.

Ok I have an issue that my two part restore is not working on an rx2600 where my tape ignite version is higher than the DVD media that I have on hand 11.i v3. Can anyone tell me where to look for media for #more /opt/ignite/Version
C.7.12.519 (I have been updating my OS via the hp.com download site, but have not kept up my install disks) TIA -KJ
