Loading an 8mm mksysb tape ipling from a Cd-Rom
I am trying to load on a 40P under Aix 4.1.1 and
8mm "mksysb" tape ipling from a CDROM AIX 4.1.1
(LK2T-0208-00 // 11H6188).
The ipl works fine, as do the following choices:
but at this point the "Tape Drive" and "Path Name" are empty.
The scsi address of the tape should be correct,
because if I try an incorrect one (the same of CD) , I get
the diag message "00370730".
What did I do wrong ? Do I need an other version of the CD ?
From the situation you have described, it would seem that the 40p
does not recognize the tape drive. I got the same output when
I booted a 40p from cd-rom (5765-393 AIX 4.1.1 for Clients) when
the tape was at the same SCSI id as the cdrom.
If I had the tape at a unique SCSI address I was able to boot
from the cd then install the mksysb from the tape.
Another point, the mksysb must also be a mksysb from a 40p or
other RISCPC. Verify that the tape is properly attached and
that the cables are terminated and connected.
