Preface
Purpose of this
Guide
This guide describes how to upgrade the VAXstation 3100 family
of systems to a VAXstation 4000 Model 60 or Model 90 only. The
VAXstation 3100 family consists of five models–30, 38, 40, 48,
and 76.
You perform the upgrade by removing supported options from
the VAXstation 3100 system unit and installing them in the
VAXstation 4000 system unit. The upgrade information includes
how to remove and install RZ2x disk drives, Ethernet ROMs,
memory modules, and execute some console commands.
This guide also describes how to repackage the VAXstation 3100
system for shipment back to Digital after completing the system
upgrade.
Who Should
Use This Guide
Only a Digital service representative or qualified self–
maintenance customer should perform this upgrade. You must
have a working knowledge of and experience working on the
internal hardware devices of a VAXstation 3100 system. If
you are not qualified to perform this upgrade, call your Digital
service representative to schedule an upgrade.
Note
It is the customer’s responsibility to perform software
backups of the system and user disks. The backups
should be performed before the Digital service
representative arrives at the site. Backups are
mandatory to ensure that data is not lost during the
upgrade.

Shut Down the
Software
Refer to the VMS Installation and Operations Manual for the
proper operating system shutdown procedure.
Enter the
SHOW DEVICE
Command
Before you begin the upgrade you need to record the system
Ethernet address (only if you are moving the Ethernet ROM to

Result: The system displays the console prompt (>>>) on the
screen.
2. Enter the SHOW DEVICE command at the console prompt
and press Return .
3. Record the system Ethernet address (if applicable).
4. Record the SCSI ID number for each drive.

Protecting Against Static Discharge
Protecting Against Static Discharge
Caution:
To eliminate any static charge that you may have built
up, touch the top of the power supply in the system unit.
This discharges any static electricity.
Always wear an antistatic wrist strap when working inside the
system unit to avoid damage caused by static discharge. Attach
the wrist strap as shown in Figure 1–4.

Checking the VAXstation 3100 Model Number
After you have disconnected the cables and before beginning
the upgrade, check the model number of the system you are
upgrading.
Each system has a model code number stamped on the rear of
the system unit. Look at the label and refer to the next table to
determine which chapter to use for the upgrade procedures.

Purpose
The purpose of this chapter is to provide upgrade information so
that a Digital service representative or knowledgeable Digital
customer can upgrade an existing VAXstation 3100 Model 30 or
38 workstation to a VAXstation 4000 Model 60 or 90 workstation.
Caution:
Only a Digital service representative or qualified
self–maintenance customer should perform this

Before You Continue
If you are not upgrading the Ethernet ROM, go to
Chapter 5 to complete this upgrade.
Continue with the next section, Removing the Ethernet
ROM, only if you want to maintain the same Ethernet
address in the VAXstation 4000 system.
Removing the Ethernet ROM
To access the Ethernet ROM you must remove the scanline
coprocessor module.
Note
Depending on the system configuration, the Model 30 or
38 system can have two types of coprocessor modules: the
graphics coprocessor module or the scanline coprocessor
module. These two modules are similar except for a
couple features. To remove the scanline coprocessor, you
must remove three screws from the mounting brackets,
then release the tabs from the post locks. The graphics
coprocessor has only four post locks with tabs holding it
to the system board.
Remove the
Scanline
Coprocessor
To remove the scanline coprocessor module, do the following and
refer to Figure 2–6 and Figure 2–7:
1. Remove the three screws on the mounting brackets that
attach the coprocessor to the system board. The mounting
brackets stay attached to the system board.

2. Remove the scanline coprocessor from the four post locks by
pulling back the post lock tabs.
Caution:
Do not grasp the scanline coprocessor module by the
corners when you are lifting it up to remove it from the
system board. The timing buffer chip located underneath
the scanline coprocessor module can become easily
damaged by any pressure exerted on it.
