I've always had to define a tape device and boot from that. DD, and
Cybernetics.
I believed SPHiNX as well, but that's been quite some time.

In this case the 'Load Source' is in fact the tape.

For some VTLs you cannot IPL from a 'library' it must be defined as a
'Tape Drive' (Cybernetics for one.)

I have the tape the BRMS report says to load up in a drive on the VTL
media library.

C2004130 - Waiting for retry. A valid load source device was not found.
C2003150 - Sending ISL command to bus unit

Double checked:
IPL Source: D
Key Lock Position: Manual
Tagged I/O devices for this partition profile are detailed below.
Load source: Client SCSI Slot 391
Alternate restart device: Client Fibre Channel Slot 209

VIOS12 lpar has
Adapter ID Adapter Type Remote Adapter ID Remote
Partition Name(ID)
209 SERVER 209
DOMTEST(9)

Why is it looking for a load source on a D IPL?
