Re: there is no ignite tape in the list

It would be very helpful to tell what server model you have ...

Hope this helps!

Re: there is no ignite tape in the list

The model is RP5470 , and there is an update in my case, we replaced the tape array 5300 ,then system recognized the path at the boot ROM prompt ,but I noticed that there is no label  in the list belong to the mentioned DDS tape as if Tape drive was empty. Then ,when I select the Path ,I got the error "IPL error: bad LIF magic. Error reading IPL"

I tried another backup media , but same problem exist.

The tape is not bootable, maybe due to the former bad tape drive.

Check the tape array 5300 for bent pins!

Hope this helps!
