Installation Procedure 1–1
1.2 Installation Procedure
Follow each step sequentially in the following procedure to unpack and
install the Rack-Mountable VAX 4000 Model 100A system.
Step 1: Prepare the Site
Site preparation involves choosing a suitable location for the system
cabinet. Follow these guidelines when choosing the location:
•
The system unit should be placed where the room temperature
is between 10°C and 35°C (50°F and 95°F) and the humidity is
between 20% and 80% noncondensing.
•
The system unit should be placed at least 1 m (3 ft) away from
heaters, photocopying machines or other operating equipment.
•
The system unit should be placed in a well-ventilated location with
at least 1 m (3 ft) of clear space in the front, rear, and sides to allow
for proper airflow and servicing.
Note
The system is mounted sideways on a slide shelf.
Removable media is accessed on the left side; the
power switch and cable ports are accessed on the
right side.
•
The system unit should not be exposed to direct sunlight or abrasive
particles.
•
The system should be placed within 4.57 m (15 ft) of the console
terminal. (The console terminal is not supplied with the system kit.)
Note
Digital recommends that you DO NOT install the shelf
in the lowest position in the cabinet. Installing and
aligning the system with the bumpers and holes in the
shelf is extremely difficult if the shelf is installed in the
lowest cabinet position.
1–2 Installation Procedure
You must also select the location within the cabinet for the RackMountable VAX 4000 Model 100A. The system requires:
•
22.2 cm (8.75 in) of vertical cabinet mounting space
•
48.3 cm (19 in) of cabinet width mounting space
•
73.66 cm (29 in) minimum of cabinet depth mounting space:
63.5 cm (25 in) for the system
10.6 cm (4 in) for the cables
•
Location of within 2 m (6 ft) of ac power source
The system unit must be mounted within cable routing distances. The
Rack-Mountable VAX 4000 Model 100A is shipped with a 7.58 m (25 ft)
MMJ cable for connection to a console terminal. Refer to the appropriate
documentation for other external option cable length requirements.
Note
The console terminal is not supplied with the system.
Step 2: Unpack the System and Identify the Parts
Note
If your system has already been installed in a cabinet,
refer to Section 4.2 to remove the shipping strap and
bracket, then proceed to Step 9: Check the Power-Up
Test Results.
Make sure that you have all the parts listed on the packing slip(s).
1. Unpack the carton containing the Rack-Mountable VAX 4000 Model
100A system. Ensure that all parts listed in Figure 1–1 and
Figure 1–2 have been received and are undamaged.

Digital recommends that you do not install the shelf
in the lowest position in the cabinet. Installing and
aligning the system with the bumpers and holes in the
shelf is extremely difficult if the shelf is installed in the
lowest cabinet position.
To install the system on the shelf, refer to Figure 1–21 and perform the
following steps:
1. Lift the slide locking arms
and fully extend the shelf
that the slide locks latch the shelf in place.

B.5 Connecting a Peripheral Cable to the
Asynchronous Modem Control Port
You can connect peripherals that use EIA-232 connectors to the
asynchronous modem control port (port 2) on the back of the system
unit. Alternatively, the supplied EIA-232 to DEC423 adapter (H8575-A)
allows you to connect peripherals that use DEC423 connectors. To
connect a peripheral to the asynchronous modem control port, refer to
the following steps:
1. If you are connecting a peripheral using EIA-232 cables:
a. Set the ON/OFF switch on the peripheral to the OFF (O)
position.
b. Connect the 25-pin D-sub connector of the peripheral cable to
the asynchronous modem control port.
c.
If the connector has screws on either side, tighten them using a
small screwdriver.
d. Connect the other end of the peripheral cable to the correct port
on the peripheral.
e.
Set the ON/OFF switch on the peripheral to the ON ( | )
position.
2. If you are connecting a peripheral using DEC423 cables:
a. Set the ON/OFF switch to the OFF (O) position.
b. Connect the 25-pin D-sub connector of the peripheral cable to
the asynchronous modem control port.
c.
Tighten the screws on each side of the adapter using a small
screwdriver.
d. Connect the EIA-232 to DEC423 adapter to the asynchronous
cable.
e.
Connect the DEC423 cable to the the MMJ port on the adapter.
f.
Connect the other end of the DEC423 cable to the correct port
on the peripheral.
g. Set the ON/OFF switch on the peripheral to the ON ( | )
position.
B–10 Connecting Peripheral Device Cables
The following EIA-232 cable is available: 2T-BC22F-10. The peripheral
you are using may require a null-modem extension cable. See
the peripheral documentation or contact your local Digital Sales
Representative for information on the correct null-modem cable you
would use.

Model 100 or 100A to a Rack-Mountable VAX 4000 Model 100A.
To upgrade a Rack-Mountable VAX 4000 Model 100 single DSSI to
a Rack-Mountable VAX 4000 Model 100A dual DSSI you need the
following kit:
•
2T-KFDDA-CF Single to Dual DSSI Upgrade Kit (see Figure C–1

MODULE RETURN PROCEDURE
1. Package modules in existing module packaging.
2. Seal shipping box with packaging tape and cover all previous shipping information.
3. Contact your local CAS representative for return information. The
person will need the Digital order number and customer name and
will give you a return authorization (RA) number.
4. Write the RA number on the return address label, in the lower lefthand corner. Make sure the number is legible. (If label is not available, return the module to the address shown below. Be sure to include the RA number.)
