Base System Description
This chapter describes the base system, including the following.
•
Power-up self-tests
•
Digital Storage Systems Interconnect (DSSI) architecture
•
Specifications for the KA6nn–AA CPU, and the MS690–BA/–CA/–DA memory
modules
1.1 System Overview
All base system components are housed in a BA440 enclosure, which contains a
12-slot backplane, 7 Q–bus slots; 1 slot reserved for CPU, and 4 slots for memory.
Each base system contains the following.
•
A KA6nn–AA (L4005–nA to L4006–nA) CPU module, located in slot 5.
•
From one to four MS690–BA/–CA/–DA memory modules.
MS690–BA memory modules are not supported on Models 700A and 705A.
The system operates from the KA6nn CPU firmware, the controls on the console
module, and the System Control Panel (SCP). The firmware is described in
Section 1.2. Base system operation also integrates Digital Storage Systems
Interconnect (DSSI) technology, which is discussed in Section 1.5.

1–2 Base System Description
1.2 Firmware Overview
Four flash-eraseable programmable read-only memory (FEPROM) chips on
the KA6nn CPU module contain the firmware. This firmware consists of the
following three major programs, which perform the system power-up self-tests
and diagnostics.
•
A console program
•
A set of self-tests for the CPU and memory
•
A primary bootstrap program (VMB)
The console program receives control whenever the processor halts. In a processor
halt, processor control passes to the console program and instruction execution
continues.
Control passes to the firmware under any of the following conditions.
•
You turn on the system.
•
You press the Restart button.
•
You assert the Q22–bus BHALT signal by pressing the Halt button.
•
You enter a break when the Break Enable/Disable switch is set to enable.
•
A HALT instruction is executed.
•
A system error occurs.
Base System Description 1–3
1.3 Power-Up
At power-up, the console program determines the console device type and console
language, then runs the self-tests for the CPU and memory. You choose the
console language when you perform the set-up operations during your console
terminal installation procedure.
You determine the type of power-up mode by setting the Power-Up Mode switch
on the CPU console module. See your Operation manual for the following
power-up information.
•
Power-up procedures
•
Power-Up Mode and Break Enable/Disable switch settings
•
Examples of successful power-up sequences
•
Boot and autoboot procedures
See your Troubleshooting and Diagnostics manual for examples of problems you
may encounter during power-up.
1.4 Console I/O Mode Overview
If you set the Break Enable/Disable switch on the console module to enable,
the console program enters Console I/O mode after the power-up self-tests are
completed successfully. The console program also enters Console I/O mode in
response to any external halt condition.
Console I/O mode allows you to control the system by typing commands at the
console prompt (>>>). You may enter these commands in either uppercase or
lowercase letters. Enter each command, then press Return .
1–4 Base System Description
1.4.1 Control Characters in Console I/O Mode
Table 1–1 lists the keypad control characters that have special meaning in
Console I/O mode.
Table 1–1 Console I/O Mode Control Characters
Character
Action
Return also <CR>
The carriage return ends a command line. No action is taken on
a command until after it is terminated by a carriage return. A
null line terminated by a carriage return is treated as a valid,
null command. No action is taken, and the console prompts for
input. Carriage return is echoed as carriage return, line feed
<CR><LF>.
<x
(rubout)
When you press < x (rubout), the console deletes the previously
typed character. The resulting display differs, depending on
whether the console is a video or a hardcopy terminal.
For hardcopy terminals, the console echoes a backslash (\ ) followed by the character
being deleted. If you press additional rubouts, the additional deleted characters are
echoed. If you type a non-rubout character, the console echoes another backslash, followed
by the character typed. The result is to echo the characters deleted, surrounding them
with backslashes. For example:
EXAMI;E< x (rubout)< x (rubout)NE <CR>
The console echoes: EXAMI;E\ E\ ;NE<CR>
The console sees the command line: EXAMINE<CR>
For video terminals, the previous character is erased and the cursor is restored to its
previous position.
The console does not delete characters past the beginning of a command line. If you press
more rubouts than there are characters on the line, the extra rubouts are ignored. A
rubout entered on a blank line is ignored.)
Ctrl/A or F14
Toggles insertion/overstrike mode for command line editing. By
default, the console powers up to overstrike mode.
Ctrl/C
Echoes ^C<CR> and aborts processing of a command. Has no
effect as part of a binary load data stream. Clears Ctrl/S and
re-enables output stopped by Ctrl/O .
Ctrl/D or
Moves the cursor one position to the left.
Moves the cursor to the end of the line.
Ctrl/E
Ctrl/F or
Moves the cursor one position to the right.

Recalls the previous commands.
Deletes the previously typed character. Same function as
(rubout), above.
<x
Ctrl/O
Ignores transmissions to the console until you enter Ctrl/O .
Echoes ^O when disabling output, which is not echoed when it
re-enables output. Output is re-enabled if the console prints an
error message, or if it prompts for a command from the terminal.
Output is also enabled by entering Maintenance mode: press
Break or enter Ctrl/C .
Ctrl/Q
Resumes output to the console terminal. Not echoed.
Ctrl/R
Echoes <CR><LF>, followed by the current command line. Can
be used to improve the readability of a command line that has
been heavily edited.
Ctrl/S
Stops output to the console terminal until you enter Ctrl/Q . Not
echoed.
Ctrl/U
Echoes ^U<CR>. Entered, but otherwise ignored if typed on an
empty line.
The console accepts Console I/O mode commands up to 80-characters long. Longer
commands produce error messages. The character count does not include rubouts,
rubbed-out characters, or the <CR> at the end of the command.
Two or more consecutive spaces and tabs are treated as a single space. Leading
and trailing spaces and tabs are ignored. You can place command qualifiers after
the command keyword or after any symbol or number in the command.
All numbers (addresses, data, counts) are hexadecimal, but symbolic register
names contain decimal register numbers. The hexadecimal digits are 0 through
9, and A through F. You can use uppercase and lowercase letters in hexadecimal
numbers (A through F) and commands.
The following symbols are qualifier and argument conventions.
[ ] = an optional qualifier or argument
{} = a required qualifier or argument

Table 1–2 (Cont.) Console I/O Mode Commands
Command
Action
SEARCH
Finds all occurrences of a pattern and reports the addresses
where the pattern was found. If you include the /NOT qualifier,
the command reports all addresses for which the pattern did
not match.
SET BFLAG
Sets the default R5 boot flags. The value must be a
hexadecimal number of up to eight digits.
SET BOOT
Sets the default boot device. The value must be a valid device
name.
SET CONTROLP
Sets Control-P as the console halt condition, instead of a
BREAK.
SET HALT
Sets the halt action you define. Acceptable values are the
keywords: default, restart, reboot, halt, restart_reboot, or a
number in the range 0 to 4 inclusive.
SET HOST
Connects to the DUP or MAINTENANCE driver on the node
or device you specify.
SET LANGUAGE
Sets the console language and keyboard type.
SET PSE
Once a password has been set, the state of the secure console
enable bit, PSE, will determine whether the secure console
mode will be entered when certain console commands are
executed. If PSE = 0 (disabled), the console will remain in
privileged mode even if a password has been set. If PSE = 1
(enabled), the console will enter into secure mode when the
following commands are executed:
BOOT (with any supplied parameters)
CONTINUE
HALT
START
Once in secure console mode, the only commands which may be
executed are BOOT (with no qualifiers) and LOGIN (in order
to enter the password and exit into priviliged mode). Since the
BOOT command will take no qualifiers in secure console mode,
it is advisable to SET BOOT and SET BFLAG prior to exiting
privileged mode.
SET PSWD
Set the password to be entered in order to exit from the secure
console to the privileged console. A 16-character password
must be typed at the "PSWD1:" prompt. The password must
be typed again for verification at the "PSWD2:" prompt.

Base System Description 1–13
1.5 Digital Storage Systems Interconnect (DSSI)
The KA6nn CPU module contains two DSSI bus adapters and two more DSSI bus
adapters on an optional DSSI daughter board. The DSSI adapters are dedicated
to the mass storage devices in your system.
The DSSI adapters on the KA6nn CPU module provide a path to two separate
DSSI busses (Bus 0 and Bus 1) through which the CPU can communicate with
DSSI devices. The DSSI adapters on the optional DSSI daughter board provide a
path to two additional separate busses (Bus 2 and Bus 3) through which the CPU
can communicate with additional DSSI devices.
Each DSSI bus has the following characteristics.
•
A 4-Mbytes-per-second bandwidth
•
Up to eight nodes (one interface and up to seven additional DSSI Devices
(RF-series ISEs, TF85/TF86s, and adapters))
•
Eight data lines
•
One parity line
•
Eight control lines
DSSI architecture improves system performance as follows.
•
The DSSI bus handles all mass storage transactions.
•
Mass storage devices can act independently, since each device contains its
own controller. Several devices can work simultaneously.
The two DSSI bus interfaces support up to 16 nodes. These 16 nodes include the
2 DSSI interfaces and 14 additional DSSI devices.
An ISE can maintain connection to more than one DSSI interface. That feature
allows ISEs to be shared by multiple CPUs in a DSSI VAXcluster configuration.
The installation of KFDDB–AA/AF options offer 2 additional DSSI buses.
For more information about DSSI VAXcluster configurations and the advantages
of such configurations, see the section on DSSI VAXcluster capability in your
system Operation manual.

Option Specifications 2–1
2.1.1 Configuration
Options must be properly configured so that the system recognizes them.
Each option in a system has a device address, commonly referred to as a control
and status register (CSR) address, and an interrupt vector that must be set
when the option is installed. Options are usually configured by setting switches
or jumpers on modules already configured at the factory or Digital service
representatives configure the option when they install it in your system.
Self-maintenance customers can find information on setting CSR addresses
and interrupt vectors in the Microsystems Options volume of the Entry Systems
Service Information .
2.2 Mass Storage Options
Your system supports the following mass storage devices.
•
Internal to the BA440 enclosure:
TK-series tape drive
TF-series tape drive
RF-series integrated storage element (ISE)

RA-series disk drive
RWZ-series disk drive
Four RA-series drives are supported by one KDA50 controller. Up to seven ISEs
are supported by one KFQSA.
2–2 Option Specifications
Using any 3.5-inch drive and/or the dual-disk RF35, up to seven ISEs can be
installed in your system. The CPU communicates with the ISEs through a Digital
Storage Systems Interconnect (DSSI) adapter, which is built into the CPU. Your
system has two DSSI adapters, and hence, two separate DSSI busses. Each DSSI
bus is capable of supporting seven integrated storage elements.
The system can support two additional adapters (KFQSA, KDA50, KZQSA, and
KLESI) provided the system and Q–bus requirements are met.
The HSD05 DSSI–to–SCSI bus adapter option can be installed in the system
backplane. This adapter allows for the installation of the following embedded
SCSI devices.
RRD43 CD–ROM
RZ26L disk
RZ28 disk
RZ73 disk
RZ74 disk
TLZ07 tape drive
TZ86 tape drive

Asynchronous Serial Controllers
Asynchronous serial controllers provide low-speed connections between peripheral
devices and the system. Asynchronous communications between the system and
the peripheral depends on recognition of a pattern of start and stop bits, not on a
time interval.
Synchronous Serial Controllers
Synchronous serial controllers provide high-speed connections between systems.
Communication between synchronous devices depends on time intervals that are
synchronized before transmission of data begins.
Ethernet Controllers
Ethernet controllers connect your system to an Ethernet network. With a
network connection and appropriate DECnet software, you can use all network
services.

System Expansion
This chapter provides guidelines on how to expand your system.
3.1 Planning System Expansion
You must consider the following when you decide to expand your system.
•
Can your system accommodate additional supported options?
You determine that by filling in a worksheet (Section 3.2) with the options
currently installed in your system and those you wish to add.
•
If your existing system cannot accommodate a particular set of supported
options, you might wish to add one of the following expanders, to enable
support for the RA-series or RF-series ISEs.
Expander
Name
Additional
Q22-Bus Slots
Additional
Storage Capacity
B400X
10
Up to four RF-series ISEs, or three ISEs and one
TK-series, or TF-series tape drive.
R400X
0
Up to seven RF-series ISEs1 , or six RF-series ISEs
with room for one TF85/TF86 tape drive.
SF100
0
One TF857 magazine tape subsystem and up to
four RF72 or RF73 ISEs.
SF200
0
Up to two TF857 magazine tape subsystems, and
two to 24 RF72 or RF73 ISEs.
SF12
1 RF35
may contain two ISEs.
This chapter does not describe how to configure new options or how to install
them in your system. Configuring an option involves assigning a control and
status register (CSR) address and an interrupt vector. This is usually done
by means of switches or jumpers on the options themselves. Digital service
System Expansion 3–1
representatives configure the options when they install them. Your Digital service
representative also determines the proper placement of options within your
system, according to specific guidelines.
3.2 Completing the System Configuration Worksheet
To determine what options you can add to your system, you must list the options
currently installed and their power requirements on the configuration worksheet
provided on the next page.
The worksheet is for the BA440 enclosure. All backplane slots and mass storage
devices are powered by the H7874 power supply.
Use the worksheets as follows.
1. In the Module column, list all options and mass storage devices currently
installed in your system, except the controller for the tape drive. The KA6nn
processor module has already been entered.
Use the label on the cover panel of each slot to identify the module installed
in that slot.
2. List each embedded storage device.
3. List the options and mass storage devices you wish to add to your system.
4. If the system includes a TK70 tape drive, list the TQK70 controller last.
5. Fill in the power requirements for each module and each mass storage device.
The power requirements for the more common options are listed in Table 3–1;
refer to the option descriptions in Chapter 2 for the power requirements of
additional options.
6. Add each column and make sure the totals do not exceed the specified limit.
As long as the figures are within range, you can probably install the new
option(s).
