Introduction
The DECserver 900GM is a network access server that supports up to 16 full modem
control ports, or 32 eight–wire partial modem control ports. The DECserver 900GMx
is identical to the DECserver 900GM, except that it supports up to 8 full modem
control ports, or 16 eight–wire partial modem control ports. The ports may be used to
connect asynchronous devices including terminals, printers, modems, or PCs to an
Ethernet local area network (LAN). Both systems operate in a DEChub 900
Multiswitch or as a standalone access server.
Except where noted, all references to the DECserver 900GM also apply to the
DECserver 900GMx.
NOTE:
In this manual, the term Ethernet is Digital’s term for its product compatibility
with the ISO 8802-3/ANSI/IEEE 802.3 standards and the Ethernet
standards for Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision detection
(CSMA/CD) local area networks (LANs).
To give your workgroup LAN media flexibility and connectivity, the module can be
configured into a DEChub 900 MultiSwitch (also referred to in this manual as the
DEChub 900). One or more DECserver 900GM modules can be installed into the
DEChub 900 (a maximum of 8 DECservers can be present; however, to connect to
the network, there must also be at least one repeater or one bridge in the
configuration). The module can also serve as a standalone unit when configured with
a DEChub ONE docking station (see the DEChub ONE installation manual).
When the module is installed into a DEChub 900, the module’s hot-swap capability
allows you to install or remove the module without turning off power to the DEChub
900.
The DECserver 900GM is configured with four 68-pin D-connectors (two for the
DECserver 900GMx), and provides full or limited modem control. Each port supports
16 baud rates from 75 baud to 115.2 Kbaud. The DECserver 900GM includes 4
megabytes (MB) of standard memory, and can be expanded to 8 MB.
1 Throughout
this manual, the term DEChub ONE refers to the DEChub ONE or the
DEChub ONE-MX docking station unless otherwise specified.

Installing the Module
The module hot-swap feature allows you to install the module into the DEChub
900 without turning off power to the DEChub 900. Seating the module initiates
the powerup sequence if enough power is available.
!
WARNING
1
To avoid personal injury or damage to equipment, do not
install the module into a DEChub 900 or DEChub ONE
unless the module is completely assembled, with the enclosure, bezel, and all faceplates in place.
Compare your module’s power
requirements with the values
shown in the Hub Manager status
display (see examples).
Module’s Manufacturing
Label (Example)
If any of the module’s power requirements exceed the values shown in
the status display, add another power supply (see the DEChub 900

Installing Flash RAM
If you use a Flash RAM card for loading the operational software, perform the following:
1
Insert the Flash RAM card into the Flash RAM slot on the front of the
module.
a. The Digital label should be on the same side as the DECserver 900GM logo on
the front panel of the module.
b. When properly inserted, the Flash RAM card protrudes from the front panel
about 1/4 inch. The Flash RAM card is keyed and cannot be inserted
improperly.
LKG–8091-93I
The Flash RAM card can be hot swapped and may be inserted or removed at anytime.
If you are booting from the Flash RAM card, insert it before powering the module or during
the self-test phase.
Once you boot the DECserver 900GM, the card may be left in place or removed.

Problem Solving Using the LEDs
When diagnosing a problem with the module, note that the problem is often
indicated by the combined states of the module’s LEDs. Table 2 lists the states of
the LEDs for various error conditions that can occur during initial installation of the
device, along with probable causes and steps you can take to correct the condition.
Normal Powerup
When power to the module is initially turned on, the following events occur:
1. The Power LED lights and remains lit. All other LEDs light and then turn off.
This verifies that the individual LEDs are operational.
2. The module initiates its built-in self-test.
3. After the self-test completes successfully (within approximately 2 minutes),
the Module OK LED lights and remains lit.
4. The remaining LEDs indicate their operational status as described in Table 2.
Problem Solving
Table 2 lists probable causes and corrective actions you can take if the module
LEDs do not function properly.

If installing the module into a
DEChub 900, check the power status
on the Hub Manager status display. If
enough power is available, lift the release lever (if installing the module
into a DEChub ONE, loosen the locking L-bracket screw). Remove the
module.
Inspect the module’s 48-pin and
160-pin connectors for bent, broken,
or dirty pins. If any pins are broken or
bent, replace the module.
If no pins are broken or bent, reinstall
the module into the DEChub.
If the problem persists, replace the
module.

Connector Pin Assignments
To install the DECserver 900GM, use either a 68-pin bulk to 50-pin female Telco
adapter (H8586-AA), the 68-pin bulk to 50-pin male Telco cable (BN41C-03), the
68-pin to eight MP8 connectors cable (BN41B-03), or 68-pin to four 25-pin DB
connectors cable (BN41A-03).
Bulk Connector
The following illustrations show the pin orientations of a 68-pin female bulk
connector on the DECserver 900GM and a 68-pin male bulk connector on the
cable. These figures are followed by a listing of the pin assignments for the
68-pin female bulk connector.

BN41A-03: 68-pin to Four 25-pin DB Octopus Cable (Optional)
Use this cable on DECserver bulk connectors A through D to provide four
full-modem control connections for each serial port. The following illustration shows
a 68-pin bulk connector to four 25-pin DB connector cable. You can connect the
25-pin DB connectors directly to modems. You must use a crossover adapter or
crossover cable for terminal interconnections. The wire size should be 26 or 28GA,
shielded or unshielded, twisted- or untwisted-pair. On the 68-pin connector, tie pins
67 and 68 together to enable the software to identify the cable. Table 5 lists the
appropriate pin assignments.
NOTE:
You can mix cable BN41A-03 and cable BN41B-03 on serial ports
A through D to create four full modem control connections on one
port and eight partial modem control connections on another.

Cable Compatibility
Before connecting cables to the DECserver 900GM ports, you must verify supported
modem signals with the person managing the DECserver 900GM. This information is
necessary to determine what cables to use. For more information on the signals, refer to
the Network Access Server Management manual.
