The Answer is :
Other TLZ-class drives are bootable from various VAX systems, so
the OpenVMS Wizard would tend to expect the TLZ09 would be bootable
in at least some of the VAXstation 4000 model 96 configurations.
Without specific details of the particular error(s) seen during the
attempt to bootstrap the VAXstation 4000 model 96 via the standalone
VAX kit built on the TLZ09, it appears that the TLZ09 drive is either
misconfigured or is not bootable in this particular configuration.
(The error messages can often assist greatly with the resolution of
the problem. In this case, the boot command used, too.)
Given that the VAXstation 4000 model 96 has integrated SCSI with
full boot support, please seriously consider bootstrapping standalone
BACKUP from an alternate disk or from an available CD-ROM kit. Any
of these approaches will be far faster and far more flexible than
booting off TLZ/DDS or any other tape media -- and with any recent
OpenVMS VAX kits, you can boot OpenVMS VAX itself off the CD-ROM
