Overview of the Conversion Process
1.1 In This Chapter
This chapter describes the general process for upgrading a VAX 4000
Model 100 or Model 100A to a VAX 4000 Model 105A system by replacing
the KA52 CPU module with a KA53 CPU module.
1.2 Overview of the Conversion Processes
Tasks required to upgrade VAX 4000 models are summarized below. To begin
the actual conversion, turn to Chapter 2 for the conversion of a VAX 4000
Model 100, or Chapter 3 for the conversion of a VAX 4000 Model 100A.
The VAX 4000 Model 100A is identical to the VAX 4000 Model 100, except that
the port cover is designed to accomodate a dual DSSI port.
The conversion of a VAX 4000 Model 100A to Model 105A involves replacing
the CPU module and the system medallion. These procedures are described in
detail in Chapter 3.
The conversion of a VAX 4000 Model 100 to Model 105A includes upgrading
with a new port cover (as if it were being converted first to a Model 100A),
then replacing the CPU module and the system medallion. These procedures
are described in detail in Chapter 2.

2.4 Upgrading the VMS Operating System
If you do not have VMS operating system version 6.1 on your system, it is
necessary to upgrade it before installing the hardware by following these steps:
1. Have the customer back up the system software before the Digital Services
representative arrives. It is the customer’s responsibility to back up the
system software.
2. Power up the system and run diagnostics to verify system operation.

8. Remove all SIMMs from the CPU module. (See Figure 2–7).
Caution
Static electricity can damage integrated circuits. Wear a wrist strap
and place an antistatic mat under the system unit when working with
the internal parts of the system unit.
Note
Note carefully the position of each SIMM you remove; they must be
reinstalled later into the same slots.
Beginning with the SIMMs closest to the front of the enclosure remove
each as follows:
1. Release the memory module by pressing the metal board clips on the
memory module connector away from the center.
2. Tip the memory module rearward.

20. Reinstall the SIMMs as follows, beginning with the module closest to the
front of the enclosure (Figure 3–20).
Caution
When installing a SIMM, note that the connectors on the CPU module
are keyed so that you cannot install the module with an incorrect

incorrect orientation.
Note
The SIMMs must be reinstalled into the same slots they came from.
1. Tip the memory module rearward.
2. Slide the module into its connector while still tipped rearward, and tip
it back upright.

Mandatory Return Procedure and Forms
The original CPU module must be returned to Digital Equipment Corporation.
Digital Services personnel must follow the instructions for repackaging and
returning the original CPU. The instructions apply only to United States area
installations.
For installations outside the United States area, contact the local Digital
Equipment Corporation office for return destination instructions.
A.1 Return Procedure
Note
Customers who do not return their original CPU modules will be
charged a fee.
Return the original CPU module as follows:
1. Obtain the serial number of the system being converted. Customer
Administrative Services (CAS) cannot process the order without this serial
number.
2. Ensure that the serial number is on the purchase order.
3. Issue a hardcopy quotation to the customer, referencing the serial number,
and state the following:
"Return of the replaced modules to Digital is a condition of sale for
this conversion. Failure to return the modules will result in a penalty
charge. Installation of hardware by Digital Services personnel is
required."
4. Pack the original CPU module using the packaging material set aside from
the carton of the conversion kit.
Mandatory Return Procedure and Forms A–1
Mandatory Return Procedure and Forms
A.1 Return Procedure
Pack the module first in the nickel-plated bag, then in the pink plastic
wrapping, and finally in the box. Do not seal the box for shipping until you
have included all necessary paperwork.
5. Complete the Digital Services Worksheet in Section A.2. It documents the
work you performed.
Return the worksheet to your contract administrator at the branch office.
6. Contact your local Digital CAS office to obtain information for the
Installation Receipt and the Return Material Checklist in Section A.2.
Ask the CAS representative for a return authorization (RA) number. CAS
will contact the customer to arrange for carrier pickup and return of the
module to Digital Equipment Corporation.
7. Complete both copies of the Installation Receipt.
The first copy is the customer’s receipt. It shows that the installation was
completed and that Digital Services contacted CAS.
Return the second copy to Digital Services along with the original CPU
module card so that the customer does not incur a penalty charge.
8. Complete the Returned Material Checklist.
Return the checklist with the original module.
9. Place the self-adhesive mailing label on the box to be returned.
Write the return authorization (RA) number in the space provided on the
label.
