Did you write it using 2K block size?
I'm pretty sure the tape instructions indicate that.
I've updated enough 712s to know that process works.

I'd be worried that the 712 firware doesn't want to talk to an
"unsupported" tape (or CD) device. Quirks in early SCSI implementations
limited the interoperability.
Netbooting the LIF image is generally much more reliable.
If "sea LAN" shows the server, that should be sufficient
to load/run the updater from LAN.
