The downloadable file is an image of the system software tape for HP-UX on 500 Series computers. It was made from a 150ft tape. We obtained 47 read errors while imaging the tape, so it's probably not entirely intact, and we don't have a working 500 Series machine to check. However, the file contents of the tape are readable by issuing the BASIC CAT command from a 300 Series computer.
To use the tape image with the hpdrive utility, you will need to issue the command:
C>hpdrive -9144-150 97089C.hpi
In the above example, the virtual tape will be available on HP-IB address 0.
Please contact us if you have a 500 Series computer or any 500 Series software.^ TOP
