If you are installing a dual-host system, you must repeat each step in the
installation procedure for each host.
2 Check the Shipment
Before unpacking your system, find the Product Delivery Document. It is
attached to the outside of a carton and is labeled with a blue "i" symbol.
That document lists your order and how it breaks out into the items
shipped.
Your shipment may include several cartons:
•
One carton contains the system.
•
A smaller carton contains the console terminal, if ordered.
•
Another carton contains hardware documentation, software documentation, and software licenses. That carton also contains system software
and diagnostic software if you ordered those items separately.
VAX 4000 Model 200 (BA430) Installation

Depending on your order, your shipment may also include cartons
containing:
•
Additional terminal(s)
•
Printer(s)
•
Modem(s)
•
Expander(s)
Make sure your shipment is complete by checking that each item listed as
shipped on the Product Delivery Document appears on a Content Listing
or on a barcode label on the outside of one of the cartons in your shipment.
NOTE: Save all packing materials until you are sure you will not reship
any items in the shipment. And save all items in the shipment until you are
sure you will not use them.
Use the unpacking illustrations on the cartons as a guide to unpack your
shipment, one carton at a time. Check the contents of each carton against
the Content Listing on its side to ensure you received all items.
WARNING: The system weighs 68 kilograms (150 pounds) with all options
installed. Two or more people should move the system.
If any item is missing or damaged:
•
Contact your delivery agent.
•
Contact your Digital sales representative.
If you ordered a dual-host system, the carton containing the second system
includes the same items as the first carton plus a BC21M–09 DSSI cable
and a ground cable. DSSI stands for Digital Storage Systems Interconnect.
Figure 1 shows the contents of the shipping carton.

The next step in installing your system is to install the console terminal.
6 VAX 4000 Model 200 (BA430) Installation
5 Install the Console Terminal
You will use the console terminal to communicate with your system.
1. Unpack the terminal and its documentation.
2. Use the instructions in the terminal installation guide to connect the
various parts of the terminal.
3. Turn on the terminal.
The terminal performs a self-test. The documentation for the terminal
describes a successful self-test and error messages you receive if the
terminal is not operating properly.
Once the terminal passes its self-test, you are ready to perform setup
operations.
5.1 Perform Setup Operations
Setup instructions for terminals vary according to model or according to
which read-only memory (ROM) is installed in the terminal. Be sure to:
•
Read the documentation provided with your terminal.
•
Follow the setup instructions for your terminal.
NOTE: A new terminal from Digital has the baud rate set to 9600. If your
terminal is new and you want to use that rate, you can skip the baud rate
setup instructions.
If you have a dual-host system, you can use one terminal with dual sessions
instead of two terminals. See your terminal documentation for instructions.
Once you test the terminal and perform setup operations, you are ready to
connect the terminal to your system.

•
Modem B — primary channel
•
Modem B — on-line control channel (OLC)
Refer to your operating system documentation to determine how to make
permanent terminal line definitions, so that every time the system is turned
on, the terminal lines are configured for proper operation.
You may need to define the following terminal line characteristics.
•
Modem control — to support full EIA modem control.
•
Speed, parity, and data bits — terminal lines should be set to 2400 baud,
parity disabled, and 8 data bits to coincide with the modem power-up
defaults.
•
Dial up — to support dial-up operation.
•
Hang up — to disable automatic hang up of the lines when logging out
or when completing a dialog with the modem using terminal emulation
software.
With automatic hang up disabled, you can modify the modem operating
parameters (from application software or when using a terminal
emulator). You can then exit the program without the modem resetting
those parameters to power-up default values.

A.2.2 Modifying FIS for a Simple VAXcluster Network
If you want to use your system as part of a simple VAXcluster network,
where disks are shared between different systems in the same network, you
need a node name and node ID which you can obtain from your network
coordinator.
The following procedure configures FIS for use as a server in a simple
VAXcluster network. The configuration can be modified later, if required,
using standard VMS procedures.
Do you want to enter Customer’s cluster and password information(Y/N)?
1. Enter Y (type Y and
Return
).
The system asks you to confirm the date and time.
The system time is dd-mmm-yyyy
hh:mm:ss:ss
Is this correct? (Y/N)
2. If the date and time are incorrect, enter N. With that answer, the system
reprompts you to enter the correct date and time and then to review it.
If you enter Y, the system displays the following prompt.
Will this node be a cluster member (Y/N)?
3. Enter Y.
A series of system prompts are displayed.
4. Respond to those prompts as listed below.
What is the node’s DECnet node name?
Enter the DECnet node name (for example, JUPITR). It can be from
one to six alphanumeric characters long and cannot include dollar signs
or underlines.
What is the node’s DECnet node address?
Enter the DECnet node address (for example, 2.2). You can obtain it
from your network coordinator.
Will the Ethernet be used for cluster communications (Y/N)?
Enter Y. The Ethernet is required for cluster (SCS internode)
communications in local area and mixed-interconnect configurations.
Enter this cluster’s group number:
Starting and Modifying VMS Factory-Installed Software
A–7
Enter a number in the range of 1 to 4095 or 61440 to 65535. You can
obtain the number from your network coordinator.
Enter the cluster’s password:
Enter the password. It can be from 1 to 31 alphanumeric characters
long and can include dollar signs and underlines. You can obtain it
from your network coordinator.
Re-enter the cluster’s password for verification:
Reenter the password.
Will JUPITR be a disk server (Y/N)?
Enter Y. In local area and mixed-interconnect configurations, the
system disk is served to the cluster. See the VMS VAXcluster Manual
for information on served cluster disks.
Will JUPITR serve HSC disks (Y)?
Enter N.
Will JUPITR serve RFxx disks (Y)?
Enter Y.
Enter a value for JUPITR’s ALLOCLASS parameter:
Enter 0 or the desired allocation class for your system.
Does this cluster contain a quorum disk (Y/N)?
Enter N.
If DECwindows is on the system disk, you will see the following prompt.
Do you want DECwindows as the default windowing system? (Y/N)
NOTE: It is easy to set DECwindows as the default windowing system
at a later stage. To do that, you must modify the VMS system
generation parameter, WINDOW_SYSTEM, generate a new set of
bootstrap parameters, and boot the system again. See the VMS
Installation and Operations Manual, the Guide to Setting Up a VMS
System, or the VMS System Generation Utility Manual for more
information.
5. If you want DECwindows as the default windowing system, enter Y.
Otherwise, enter N.
The system displays prompts asking for account passwords.
A–8 VAX 4000 Model 200 (BA430)
6. Enter them as shown below.
NOTE: The passwords shown are samples. You should enter your own
passwords. Remember to record them. If you forget a password, you
cannot log in.
Enter new password for account SYSTEM: PANCAKES Return
Re-enter the password for account SYSTEM: PANCAKES Return
%UAF-I-MDFYMSG, user record(s) updated
Enter new password for account SYSTEST: BRATHWURST Return
Re-enter the password for account SYSTEST: BRATHWURST Return
%UAF-I-MDFYMSG, user record(s) updated
Enter new password for account FIELD: ZIRHUMBA Return
Re-enter the password for account FIELD: ZIRHUMBA Return
%UAF-I-MDFYMSG, user record(s) updated
Your system verifies the passwords and rejects any that can be easily
guessed. The following status messages are displayed if the passwords
are acceptable.
%VMS-I-PWD_OKAY, account password for SYSTEM verified
%VMS-I-PWD_OKAY, account password for SYSTEST verified
%VMS-I-PWD_OKAY, account password for FIELD verified
Then the following status message is displayed.
Creating RIGHTS database file, SYS$SYSTEM:RIGHTSLIST.DAT
Ignore any messages of this type.
%SYSTEM-F-DUPIDENT, duplicate identifier
The following status message is displayed when the FIS setup
procedure completes.
%UAF-I-RDBDONEMSG, rights database modified
Then the system displays messages that remind you to perform certain
tasks after the software is installed.
•

1. Continue the data entry sequence.
2. Reject the data at the end of the sequence when your system asks you
to confirm the data.
Your system then gives you an opportunity to reenter the data correctly.

See the VMS Installation and Operations Manual for more information
on entering PAKs, customizing and testing your system, startup and
shutdown, and backup procedures.
In a VAXcluster network, queues for printer and batch processing
operations can be configured to work on other systems in the cluster. See
your network coordinator for details of queues that are available in your
network. If you are setting up a new network, see the VMS VAXcluster
Manual for a discussion on setting up remote printer and batch processing
queues.
You can use the NETCONFIG.COM command procedure to include your
system in a network, provided you have the appropriate software licenses
and PAKs. See the VMS VAXcluster Manual, the Guide to DECnet–VAX
Networking, and the VMS Networking Manual for more information.
A.2.3 Modifying FIS for a Complex Network or Dual-Host
System
In a complex network or dual-host system you may want to enter the
disk allocation class and quorum disk information for the network. That
information lets disks be shared on a selective basis between some systems
on the network. Quorum disk information also allows more rigorous
definition of cluster operations during the removal of systems from the
network.
In addition, queues for printer and batch processing operations can be set
up, allowing work to be executed on other systems in the network.
See the VMS VAXcluster Manual, the Guide to DECnet–VAX Networking,
and the VMS Networking Manual for information on setting up systems
as members of complex networks and setting up remote printer and batch
processing queues.

A.2.3.1 Configuring for Dual-Host Systems
The VMS Installation and Operations manual tells you how to configure
a dual-host system for cluster operation. You can set up the system for
operation as a:
•
Pair of boot servers for a new local area cluster to which you intend to
add satellites
•
Two-node cluster to which you do not intend to add satellites
•
Pair of boot servers that you want to add to an existing cluster
NOTE: You must assign the same allocation class to both systems and to the
ISEs. The allocation class must be different from that of other systems and
hierarchical storage controllers (HSCs) in a cluster. Refer to your system
Operation manual for information on setting parameters for ISEs.
The following software licenses are required to configure a dual-host system.
Host A
Host B
VMS
VMS
VAXcluster
VAXcluster
DECnet full-function
DECnet end-node
A.2.3.2 Checking Your Modification Work
You can use two commands to check your work after you modify FIS for a
dual-host system.
•
Use SHOW DEVICE D to list the ISEs. Make sure the number of ISEs
listed matches the number in your dual-host system.
Too many ISEs indicates an incorrect allocation class setting for an
ISE.
Too few ISEs indicates an incorrect unit number for an ISE.
•
Use SHOW DEVICE DI/FULL to check that the alternate host name
for your dual-host system is displayed.
