Assuming that you have tape to backup to and that you have access to a
profile with sufficient privilege, then your quickest way to build a
bootable tape is by typing at a command line:
You'll want to scroll down and you'll find '21 Entire System'. This
produces a bootable, full system backup tape from which you can restore
your system to bare metal.
Typically, your tape drive will have a device name of TAP01,
particularly on a 170 (a rather smallish system).
If you need further help feel free to ask. I work on these systems
every week a two different clients.
