The error message seems to indicate system is missing some HFS files.
If the HFS files do not reside on the backup, you'll need to recover the HFS files
from the FOS tape:
1) restore @.HP36431.SUPPORT and I0036431.USL.SYS from FOS tape,
2) stream SUPACCT.PUB.SYS to create the hfs directories,
3) stream I0036431.USL.SYS which will explode all hfs files from an MPE file and set up all SYMLINKs from the hfs name space to the MPE files (such as SH.HPBIN.SYS).
