Tru64 UNIX Systems
MEMORY CHANNEL options require Tru64 UNIX
V4.0F with TruCluster V1.6 or later.
Each system node in a MEMORY CHANNEL cluster
requires a TruCuster Production Server
(QB-3RLAQ-KA) or TruCluster MEMORY
CHANNEL (QB-4ZCAQ-AA) software license.
TruCluster MEMORY CHANNEL license
(QB-4ZCAQ-AA), normally used for highperformance technical computing applications, is
not required if systems include a TruCluster
Production Server license (QB-3RLAQ-KA).
The following options are currently not supported with
MEMORY CHANNEL: DJ-ML200, CIPCA.
OpenVMS Systems
MEMORY CHANNEL options require OpenVMS
V7.1-2 or later and OpenVMS Cluster license
(QL-MUZAQ-AA).
2-node clusters can be configured by ordering a
CCMAB-AA for each system and 1 BN39B-04 or
BN39B-10 cable, cable connects directly to
CCMAB-AA in each system
For three or four system clusters, order one CCMABAA adapter and one BN39B-04 or BN39B-10 cable
for each system and one CCMHB-AA hub for the
cluster
CCMHB-AA includes four CCMLB-AA line cards and
supports up to four nodes; expansion up to eight
system nodes can be achieved by adding up to four
additional CCMLB-AA line cards
If two or more CCMAB-AA controllers are configured in
each system, a second CCMHB-AA hub is required
for clusters with more than two nodes; in 2-node
clusters the CCMAB-AA may be directly connected.

MEMORY CHANNEL (continued)
In cases where nodes must be separated by a longer
distance than standard copper cables allow, the
CCMFB option converts the output of the standard
CCMAB controller or CCMLB line card to singlemode fibre optic cable. The fibre optic connection
may be up to 2,000 meters long between two
CCMAB controllers connected in virtual hub mode,
or 3,000 meters between a CCMAB controller and a
CCMHB hub. (The connection from the CCMHB
hub to a second system may also be 3,000 meters).
The CCMFB option requires a second PCI slot in
the system from which it draws power only. It is
normally connected to the corresponding CCMAB
controller with the short BN39B-01 cable. The
CCMFB is also used in the CCMHB hub where it
occupies a slot normally used by the CCMLB line
card, limiting expansion to four radial fibre optic
connections.
The CCMHB-BA hub expansion box provides
additional slots for up to 8 fibre optic connections.
Two standard length, single-mode fibre optic cables
are available (BN34R-10 and BN34R-31); however,
users normally provide this connection. Customers
should reference the TIA/EIA 568-A Commercial
Building Telecommunications Cabling Standard,
Section 12.3.4. Fibre optic connectivity is
completely transparent to the systems using it and
has no performance impact.
