Create an Ignite image on tape from Online IgniteUX image

Hi, (HP-UX 11.11)
I need to create a tape image of an igniteUX image created on our igniteUX server.

That is to say. I have a "Online" image of the igniteUX of the targeted system but I now need to copy it to a useable TAPE (igniteUX) image so i can build an other server from it that is not available on the network.

Has any body done this before?
Any ideas on where to start and how to do it?

Thanks in advance

A more detailed procedure is in file /opt/ignite/share/doc/makenetrec.txt in this paragrah "Creating a Bootable Archive Tape"

Personally, im used to use tape unless im on tapeless system Smilie

I don't have this file?
If this doc describes how to setup and create "ONLINE" igniteUX images, then thats what I can do. What I need is to convert the saved "Online" image to a physical tape in the "igniteux" format.
Will try and find this doc on the internet.
