First-Time Set Up Considerations
Determine Whether the Instrument will be Connected to the
Network
NOTE
If you plan to use COM automation to programmatically control a logic analyzer from a
remote computer, be aware that the remote computer and the logic analyzer must both
have the same kind of network membership; that is, they must both be members of a
"Workgroup", or they must both be members of a "Domain". This is due to the security
requirements of Distributed COM.
Standalone
You are going to use the logic analyzer as a standalone instrument (no
LAN connection). Printing requires a printer attached to the logic
analyzer, sharing files is done via USB flash drive or floppy disk.
Connected to a Network
If you require the ability to print, share files, remotely control the logic
analyzer, etc. over the network, you need to either join a workgroup or
domain.
Get Network Setup Information
For networking, find out whether the network that your instrument will be
connected to uses the Microsoft Workgroup model or Microsoft Domain
model. In order for your instrument to perform tasks over the network
(print, transfer files, etc.) your instrument must be configured
appropriately for the networking model in use at your site.
Information you may require to complete your network configuration may
include, but is not limited to:
• The Workgroup or Domain name.
16800 Series Portable Logic Analyzers Installation/Quick Start Guide

First-Time Set Up
• Methodology for assigning IP addresses at your site (for example,
DHCP).
• Domain Name Service (DNS).
Other network information that may be readily available from your
network administrator.

Getting Started with the Logic Analyzer
To power off the system
You can power off the logic analyzer using Windows Shutdown or a short
press of the power button.
NOTE
When powering off the logic analyzer, wait until the fans stop turning (about 15 seconds)
before turning the logic analyzer back on. This ensures that internal circuitry restarts in a
known state.
Using the Windows Shutdown
On the logic analyzer desktop click Start>Shut Down or if you are
running remote desktop, click Start>Windows Security>Shut Down. This:
• Closes all programs that are running.
• Writes all data to the disk.
• Turns off the power supply.
• If the system is unplugged while it is off and then plugged back in, the
system will not power on until the power button is pressed.
Using a Short Press of the Power Button
Pressing the power button on the logic analyzer for a short time (less than
2 seconds):
• Closes all programs that are running.
• Writes all data to the disk.
• Turns off the power supply.
If the power button on the Remote Desktop is depressed for a short time
(less than 2 seconds or so), a message on the logic analyzer screen (not
on the remote desktop) will pop up asking if you really want to power
down. Clicking the 'yes' button results in the above events. Clicking 'no'
will prevent the shutdown. Not answering the dialog box (clicking neither
"Yes" nor "No") will have no effect. Further short presses on the power
button will have no effect.

Using a Long Press of the Power Button
CAUTION
Only use a long press of the power button when the logic analyzer is unresponsive to
Windows Shutdown or a short press of the power button.
Pressing the power button for more than 4 seconds will power the system
down abruptly:
• Programs that are running will not be shut down. Any data that has
not been written to the disk will be lost.
• Turns off the power supply.
• If the system is unplugged while it is off and then plugged back in, the
system will not power on until the power button is pressed
Unplugging the Power Cord or Power Loss
CAUTION
Only unplug the power cord when the logic analyzer is unresponsive to all other
methods for powering off the system.
Unplugging power or a power loss is similar to the long press of the
power button with one exception:
• When the system is plugged back in, it will power up and boot into
Windows.

If the logic analyzer powers itself down
If the logic analyzer warns you it is powering down before it powers
down, the dialog will describe the problem (such as a fan/overtemp
problem). If the logic analyzer just powers down, it is likely a power
supply problem.
If the Power LEDs do not come on
If the lights do not come on and if the system powers up momentarily
when you plug it in, make sure the power button hasn't become jammed
or stuck in the pushed in position.
If you get a registry error and the system won’t boot
When powered off unexpectedly (for example, with a long press of the
power button or a power loss), Windows may not flush all system
information to disk and is vulnerable to problems. When you power back
on you may get a "Registry Error" and the system won't boot. If this
happens you will need to restore from the system CD- ROM. In the Logic
Analysis systems with Windows 7 installation, you can restore the system
software using the recovery process. This process overwrites all the user
data and restores the system back to the original condition in which it
was shipped. Refer to the topic “On a 16800 Series Logic Analyzer with
Windows 7 Installation” on page 54 to know more about this process.
It is best to keep regular backups of your data and use proper power
down procedures. If you have data that was not backed up that you need
to try to save:
1 Physically remove the disk drive.
2 Mount it under another Windows XP/7 system based on which
operating system is installed on the Logic Analysis system.
3 Move the data to the boot disk until you can restore the operating
system.

Solving Problems
If there are network connection problems
See the “Network Troubleshooting Guide” topic in the Agilent Logic
Analyzer application’s online help. Briefly:
• The Windows Firewall must be set to allow access to the “Agilent Logic
Analysis” service in order use remote connections (see “To restore the
logic analyzer firewall defaults” on page 41).
• The Windows Firewall must be set to respond to the following ICMP
(Internet Control Message Protocol) requests in order to use remote
connections:
• Allow incoming echo requests.
• Allow outgoing destination unreachable.
• Allow outgoing time exceeded.
(See “To restore the logic analyzer firewall defaults” on page 41.)
• The link activity light must be on; If these LEDs are not on, the LAN
segment may be dead.
• If connecting two logic analysis systems directly together (that is, no
hub or switch between them), make sure you are using a special
cross- over cable.
If your IP address is in the same subnet as a working computer’s (use
“ipconfig /all | more” to view IP addresses on machine in question), it is
possible that your network administrators have denied access to any
resources if the computer is not in the domain. In this case, you need to
add the computer (logic analysis system) to the domain.

Solving Problems
Using the System Recovery Software
Restoring your system software might be necessary for the following
reasons:
• Hard drive failure.
• Virus in the system or unstable system.
• Intentional disk clean - for example if you are passing the system to
another team or returning it to a rental company and you do not want
any data left on it.
On a Legacy 16800 Series Logic Analyzer with Windows XP Installation
The legacy 16800 series of Logic Analyzers have the Windows XP
operating system installed. These systems also have the Agilent Logic
Analyzer software preinstalled.
You need to have a keyboard, mouse, and USB DVD- ROM drive connected.
Follow the instructions provided with the recovery CD or DVD that
accompanies your Logic Analyzer to restore your system software.
CAUTION
Running the recovery disks will reformat your hard drive. All data files and programs
will be overwritten. Save your data to a CD or to another machine before performing
this procedure.
On a 16800 Series Logic Analyzer with Windows 7 Installation
The 16800 series of Logic Analyzers with serial number of MY51420101 or
higher have the Windows 7 operating system installed. These systems also
have the Agilent Logic Analyzer software version 5.20 or later preinstalled.
These systems do not have any recovery CD or DVD in their shipment.
If you need to restore the logic analysis system software, you run the
recovery process on the hard drive of the system. This recovery process
uses the hidden partition on the hard drive to restore the hard disk drive
back to its original state in which it was shipped. When you run this
process, the recovered hard disk drive contains:
• the Windows 7 operating system
54
16800 Series Portable Logic Analyzers Installation/Quick Start Guide

• the version of the Logic Analyzer software which was installed when
the system was originally shipped and not the latest or upgraded
version of the software that might be available at the time of system
recovery.
• the license files of any licensed optional products that you had
purchased with the Logic Analyzer and that were installed when the
system was originally shipped.
NOTE
When you run the recovery process, the software licensing Host ID of your logic analyzer
may change. If this happens, the restored license files will not work with the new host ID
and you will need rehosted license files. To get these files, you can contact your nearest
Agilent sales/service office. To locate a sales or service office, go to
www.agilent.com/find/contactus.
CAUTION
Running the recovery process reformats your logic analyzer’s hard disk drive to the
state in which it was originally shipped to you. All user data files and programs are
overwritten when the recovery process runs. Therefore, save your data to a CD or to
another machine before you start recovering the system software.
To run the recovery process
1 Shut down and then restart your Logic Analyzer.
While booting up, the Logic Analyzer displays the Windows Boot
Manager screen. This screen provides you the following options:

Safety Notices
Warnings
• Before turning on the instrument, you must connect the protective
earth terminal of the instrument to the protective conductor of the
(mains) power cord. The mains plug shall only be inserted in a socket
outlet provided with a protective earth contact. You must not negate the
protective action by using an extension cord (power cable) without a
protective conductor (grounding). Grounding one conductor of a
two- conductor outlet is not sufficient protection.
• Only fuses with the required rated current, voltage, and specified type
(normal blow, time delay, etc.) should be used. Do not use repaired
fuses or short- circuited fuse holders. To do so could cause a shock or
fire hazard.
• If you energize this instrument by an auto transformer (for voltage
reduction or mains isolation), the common terminal must be connected
to the earth terminal of the power source.
• Whenever it is likely that the ground protection is impaired, you must
make the instrument inoperative and secure it against any unintended
operation.
• Service instructions are for trained service personnel. To avoid
dangerous electric shock, do not perform any service unless qualified to
do so. Do not attempt internal service or adjustment unless another
person, capable of rendering first aid and resuscitation, is present.
• Do not install substitute parts or perform any unauthorized
modification to the instrument.
• Capacitors inside the instrument may retain a charge even if the
instrument is disconnected from its source of supply.
• Do not operate the instrument in the presence of flammable gasses or
fumes. Operation of any electrical instrument in such an environment
constitutes a definite safety hazard.
• Do not use the instrument in a manner not specified by the
manufacturer.
• To optimize your comfort and productivity, it is important that you set
up your work area correctly and use your equipment properly. Refer to
