We have an F50 with a 8mm - 20Gb Mammoth Tape drive
When I do a mksysb with a 20Gb tape, it works fine
If I try to mksysb with an older 7Gb tape, it fails as follows:
11:ROOT > mksysb -i /dev/rmt0
Creating information file (/image.data) for rootvg..
Creating tape boot image....
0301-161 bosboot: dd failed to copy /dev/rmt0.1.
0301-165 bosboot: WARNING! bosboot failed - do not attempt to boot device.
0512-016 mksysb: Attempt to create a bootable tape failed:
bosboot -d /dev/rmt0.1 -a failed with return code 48.
I can tar and dd to the tape, just not with a mksysb with the smaller tape.
Ideas? Is it just not possible to create a bootable image on the smaller
