I also have a QD32. I have Emulex diagnostics, but on a TK50, and I
don't have an image, nor do I have any diagnostic documentation.
However, when I ran the diagnostic (many YEARS ago) on my uVax II
(FVD32M) it was self-explanatory.
The tape is VX9962004 Rev J.
My notes say:
FQD01M is the MSCP FORMAT program for a QD32 (and QD01 and SC03) for a
FVD32M is the MSCP FORMAT program for a QD32 (and QD01 and SC41 and
SC03) on a uVax. So this is the one you want.
HELP is supposed to give help.
DIR is supposed to list the diagnostics.

There is an Emulex QD32 manual on bitsavers, but it doesn't seem to have
any info on the diagnostics.
