I have four different make_recovery tapes that I need to duplicate repeatably. I have used copy_boot_tape, and it works great. The only problem I have experienced is: You need to use the original tape every time you make a copy. If I have a disk with enough space on it to leave the bootimage and systemimage, can any of the option in copy_boot_tape let me repeatably create a bootable tape.
If not a copy_boot_tape command, will dd dump the material, and will it be a bootable tape. If so, I could use some help with the dd command.

patch tapes. It will copy tape to tape and maintain the integrity of the original as follow.
Do: copytape /dev/rmt/0x /dev/rmt/1x.

It says in man copy_boot_tape that you can use the construct below to copy bootimage from a directory on the harddrive /extra_space onto a tape... good luck
Create a bootable tape using the file bootimage in directory
/extra_space. The bootimage file has to be a lif file and contain at
minimum ISL, AUTO, and HPUX. Use make_medialif to create the lif file
and lifls(1) to show its contents.
copy_boot_tape -p /dev/rmt/c1t1d0DDS1n -b -d /extra_space
