make_tape_recovery -A -v -d /dev/rmt/0mn
I got the following error message.
What's the problem?Can you help me to solve it?
IF I am going to reinstall Ignite-UX-11-00, How to do it? and where can I find the software?
make_medialif: error - /opt/ignite/boot/Rel_B.11.00/INSTALL does not exist, is not a regular file or is not readable.
ERROR: System Error, /opt/ignite/bin/make_medialif failed creating boot LIF
ERROR: Failed to generate LIF on tape .

Make sure you ignite patches are up to date too.
See if you cant to a tar -cvf /dev/rmt/0m /tmp/somefile
if that is your tape device, modify as needed.
Then do a tar -tvf /dev/rmt/0m
If this fails you probably have dirty drive, drive problem, or most likely bad tape.
just as a quick check that your tape and drive are working :).

Does your system have this directory with these contents ?
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 17445704 Nov 4 2004 INSTALL
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 12582912 Apr 24 16:56 INSTALLFS
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 18884504 Nov 4 2004 VINSTALL
lrwxr-xr-x 1 bin bin 9 Apr 24 16:55 VINSTALLFS -> INSTALLFS
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 21471240 Nov 4 2004 WINSTALL
lrwxr-xr-x 1 bin bin 9 Apr 24 16:55 WINSTALLFS -> INSTALLFS
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 90 Nov 4 2004 auto_conf
I think it is corrupted or imcomplete installation. Was ignite used for the first time or it has been used earlier ?

The files that were reported missing (which show in your message) were simply symbolic links to the 11.11 versions of the files!!! If the 11.11 components weren't there, then el bombo.
Therefore, hopefully, Pete's fix is probably correct :>) I have not had an occasion to use/check any later version.

Various limitations & ovecomes of various verions are listed here alongwith their release dates.
Also the latest version can be downloaded from here as well. ( Format problem to avoid line break)

The problem is that the 11.00 install has symbolic links to files included only in the 11.11 version.
Download the 11.11 version of ignite and but it in the same depot w/ the 11.00 version, then reinstall. should resolve the problem
