DG/UX : systemtape

hi all,

at the moment i have to setup an dg/ux server ( R4.20MU06 ) it works fine . i have attached a tape device ( wagntek ) and /dev/rmt/0 ( 0n ... ) is created.

i want to make a systemtape from the system with the systemtape util. on the shell i typed :

systemtape -b /usr/stand/boot.pc -s /usr/stand/sysadm

and the tape is working. ok fine, but how to reinstall the systemtape ?

i've booted form floppy disk and at the boot command prompt i typed :

sd(apscpci(0),9,0,7),2,0)usr:/sysadm -l DEde

but nothing happens..... the system write Bootstrap on the screen and i wait ..and wait..and wait....

and if i want to boot per SCSI BIOS directly from the tape the same message is writing to the screen and i have to wait ....

any ideas what to do ? many many thanks to all

How long do you wait? Those tape drives can be slow... More likely though is that it is a bad tape. Can you try creating a new copy with a brand-new (never used) tape? You may also want to try running a cleaning tape through your drive if you haven't done so recently.
