Chapter 1
Overview
The AlphaServer GS160/320 systems are high-performance server platforms
designed for enterprise-level applications. They are distinguished by their
versatility and high degree of scalability and expandability.
These powerful, switch-based systems use four Alpha microprocessors per quad
0
building block (QBB). Two QBBs paired back-to-back and rotated 180 with
reference to each other form a system box. Each QBB backplane contains a
switch that acts as an interconnect between the CPU modules, memory
modules, I/O riser modules, and the global port module.
Overview
1-1
1.1
The Systems
The GS160/320 system consists of a power cabinet and one system cabinet
(GS160) or two system cabinets (GS320), depending on the configuration. The
power cabinet contains the power supplies, the I/O components—the PCI boxes
and storage units—and the OCP. The system cabinets house the system boxes
that carry interconnect modules as well as CPU and memory modules.
The system cabinet can be configured with one or two system boxes. The first
system box is located in the lower cavity of the cabinet and the second system
box is inserted in the upper cavity. A fully configured system consists of a
power cabinet and two system cabinets—system cabinet 1 and system cabinet
2—each system cabinet containing two system boxes.
In a single system box system a distribution board interfaces the two QBBs
directly through their global ports. In configurations with more than one
system box a hierarchical switch replaces the distribution board and adds a
second level switch to route information between the system boxes.
Additional PCI boxes and storage shelves can be accommodated in expander
cabinets that can be attached to either side of the system.

1.5
Upgrades
Upgrades of the GS160/320 are conducted at two levels: component and system.
At the component level, an upgrade consists of the addition of either a PCI box
or a storage unit. At the system level, upgrade procedures depend on the
existing system, and the configuration to which the system needs to be brought
up.
1.5.1
Component Addition
Additional PCI boxes and storage units are installed either in the power cabinet
or, if the power cabinet is full, in an expander cabinet attached to either side of
the system. Additional expander cabinets can accommodate further component
upgrades. The placement order of PCI boxes and storage units in expander
cabinets must follow the configuration rules given in Chapter 5.
1.5.2
System Box Addition
A system box is added to the following systems:
•
A GS160 with a single system box
•
A GS320 with three system boxes
•
In an upgrade of a GS160 system to a GS320 system
To add a second system box to a single system box GS160 system, you need to
install the (green) system box in system cabinet 1 and replace the distribution
board assembly with a hierarchical switch. You must also install the associated
power subrack and power supplies in the dedicated area in the power cabinet.
The addition of the fourth system box to a three system box GS320 system is
similar to the addition of the second system box except that in this case the
system is already equipped with a hierarchical switch. Install the (brown)
system box in system cabinet 2. You must also install the associated power
subrack and power supplies in the dedicated area in the power cabinet.
The addition of a third (or third and fourth) system box requires an upgrade
from GS160 to GS320. In this case you must join system cabinet 2 to system
cabinet 1. If system cabinet 2 has the system box(es) already installed, then
make the appropriate power subrack installations and cable connections.

AlphaServer GS160/320 Upgrade Manual
1.5.3
Original System Upgrade
In this upgrade, the original 4-Mbyte B-cache B4125 CPUs are replaced with
faster B4166 CPUs (8-Mbyte B-cache) or B4168 CPUs (16-Mbyte B-cache); or
B4166 or B4168 CPUs are added to the existing system. The original system
has the following characteristics:
1. The system cabinet is blue.
2. The system drawer(s) supports 4 Mbytes of CPU B-cache.
3. The system contains 731 MHz B4125 CPUs only.
4. The system runs on a 9.6 ns clock.
The addition of B4166 or B4168 CPUs to an existing system with B4125 CPUs
results in a partial upgrade. In a fully upgraded system, all system drawers
would support the size of the CPU’s B-cache, and all B4125 CPUs would be
replaced with B4166 or B4168 CPUs.
The rules and procedures for upgrading an original system are discussed in
Appendix A.
Overview
1-11
Chapter 2
Upgrade to Two System Boxes
This chapter discusses the requirements and procedures for upgrading an
AlphaServer GS160 from one system box to two system boxes. To upgrade a
one system box GS160 system to a two or more system-box system, you must
remove the distribution board assembly and replace it with a hierarchical
switch.
The upgrade procedure consists of the following operations:
•
Removal of the distribution board assembly
•
Installation of the hierarchical switch
•
Installation of a power subrack (green)
•
Installation of the second system box (green)
•
Power-up
Procedures for the removal of the distribution board assembly, the installation
of the hierarchical switch, cable connections, and system preparation for booting
are given in the subsequent sections.
The installation procedures for the system box and the corresponding subrack
are given in Chapter 5. Power-up is discussed in Chapter 4.

4.4
Q-Vet Verification
CAUTION: Customers are not authorized to access, download, or use
Q-Vet. Q-Vet is for use by service engineers to verify the system
installation. Misuse of Q-Vet may result in loss of customer data.
Q-Vet is the Qualification Verifier Exerciser Tool that is used by product
engineers to exercise systems under development. We recommend running the
latest Q-Vet released version to verify that hardware is installed correctly and
is operational. Q-Vet does not verify specific operating system or layered
product configurations.
The latest Q-Vet release, information, Release Notes, and documentation are
located at http://chump2.mro.cpqcorp.net/qvet/.
If the system has been partitioned, Q-Vet must be installed and run separately
on each partition to verify the complete system. We recommend that Compaq
Analyze be installed on the operating system prior to running Q-Vet.
CAUTION:
Do not install the Digital System Verification Software (DECVET) on GS80,
GS160, or GS320 systems; use Q-Vet instead.
Non-IVP Q-Vet scripts verify disk operation for some drives with "write
enabled" techniques. These are intended for Engineering and
Manufacturing Test. Run ONLY IVP scripts on systems that contain
customer data or any other items that must not be written over. See the
Q-Vet Disk Testing Policy Notice on the Q-Vet Web site for details. All
Q-Vet IVP scripts use Read Only and/or File I/O to test hard drives.
Floppy and tape drives are always write tested and should have scratch
media installed.
Q-Vet must be de-installed upon completion of system verification.
4-14
AlphaServer GS160/320 Upgrade Manual
Swap or Pagefile Space
The system must have adequate swap space (on Tru64 UNIX) or pagefile space
(on OpenVMS) for proper Q-Vet operation. You can set this up either before or
after Q-Vet installation.
During initialization, Q-Vet will display a message indicating the minimum
amount of swap/pagefile needed, if it determines that the system does not have
enough. You can then reconfigure the system.
If you wish to address the swap/pagefile size before running Q-Vet, see the
Swap/Pagefile Estimates on the Q-Vet Web site.

4.4.1
Installing Q-Vet
The procedures for installation of Q-Vet differ between operating
systems. You must install Q-Vet on each partition in the system.
Install and run Q-Vet from the SYSTEM account on VMS and the root
account on UNIX. Remember to install Q-Vet in each partition.
Tru64 UNIX
1. Make sure that there are no old Q-Vet or DECVET kits on the system by
using the following command:
setld -i | grep VET
Note the names of any listed kits, such as OTKBASExxx etc., and remove
the kits using qvet_uninstall if possible. Otherwise use the command
setld -d
kit1_name kit2_name
kit3_name
2. Copy the kit tar file (QVET_Vxxx.tar) to your system.
3. Be sure that there is no directory named output. If so move to another
directory or remove the output directory.
rm -r output
4. Untar the kit with the command
tar xvf
QVET_Vxxx.tar
Note: The case of the file name may be different depending upon how it was
stored on the system. Also, you may need to enclose the file name in
quotation marks if a semi-colon is used.
5. Install the kit with the command
setld -l output
6. During the install, if you intend to use the GUI you must select the
optional GUI subset (QVETXOSFxxx).
7. The Q-Vet installation will size your system for devices and memory. It
also runs qvet_tune. You should answer 'y' to the questions that are asked
about setting parameters. If you do not, you may have trouble running
Q-Vet. After the installation completes, you should delete the output
directory with rm -r output. You can also delete the kit tar file.
8. You must reboot the system before starting Q-Vet.
4-16
AlphaServer GS160/320 Upgrade Manual
9. On reboot you can start Q-Vet GUI via vet& or you can run non GUI
(command line) via vet –nw.
OpenVMS
1. Delete any QVETAXPxxx.A or QVETAXPxxx.EXE file from the current
directory.
2. Copy the self-extracting kit image file (QVETAXPxxx.EXE) to the current
directory.
3. It is highly recommended, but not required, that you purge the system disk
before installing Q-Vet. This will free up space that may be needed for
pagefile expansion during the AUTOGEN phase.
$purge sys$sysdevice:[*… ]*.*
4. Extract the kit saveset with the command $run QVETAXPxxx.EXE and
verify that the kit saveset was extracted by checking for the "Successful
decompression" message.
5. Use @sys$update:vmsinstal for the Q-Vet installation. The installation
will size your system for devices and memory. You should choose all the
default answers during the Q-Vet installation. This will verify the Q-Vet
installation, tune the system, and reboot. During the install, if you do not
intend to use the GUI, you can answer no to the question "Do you want to
install Q-Vet with the DECwindows Motif interface?"
6. After the installation completes you should delete the QVETAXP0xx.A file
and the QVETAXPxxx.EXE file.
7. On reboot you can start Q-Vet GUI via $vet or the command interface via
$vet/int=char.
System Power-Up

4.4.2
Running Q-Vet
You must run Q-Vet on each partition in the system to verify the
complete system.
We recommend that you review the Special Notices and the Testing Notes
section of the Release Notes located at http://chump2.mro.cpqcorp.net/qvet/
before running Q-Vet.
Follow the instructions listed for your operating system to run Q-Vet in each
partition.

A short IVP script is provided for a simple verification of device setup.
It is selectable from the GUI IVP menu, and the script is called
.Ivp_short.scp (ivp_short.vms). This script will run for 15 minutes
and then terminate with a Summary log. The short script may be run
prior to the long IVP script if desired, but not in place of the long IVP
script, which is the full IVP test.
The long IVP will run until the slowest device has completed one pass (typically
2 to 12 hours). This is called a Cycle of Testing.
System Power-Up
4-19
4.4.3
Reviewing Results of the Q-Vet Run
After running Q-Vet, check the results of the run by reviewing the
summary log.
If you follow the above steps, Q-Vet will run all exercisers until the slowest
device has completed one full pass. Depending on the size of the system
(number of CPUs and disks), this will typically take 2 to 12 hours. Q-Vet will
then terminate testing and produce a summary log. The termination message
will tell you the name and location of this file.
All exerciser processes can also be manually terminated with the Suspend and
Terminate buttons (stop and terminate commands).
After all exercisers report “ Idle,” the summary log is produced containing Q-Vet
specific results and statuses.
A. If there are no Q-Vet errors, no system event appendages, and testing
ran to the specified completion time, the following message will be
displayed:
”Q-Vet Tests Complete: Passed”
B. Otherwise, a message will indicate:
”Additional information may be available from Compaq
Analyze”
It is recommended that you run Compaq Analyze to review test results. The
testing times (for use with Compaq Analyze) are printed to the Q-Vet run
window and are available in the summary log.

AlphaServer GS160/320 Upgrade Manual
4.4.4
De-Installing Q-Vet
The procedures for de-installation of Q-Vet differ between operating
systems. You must de-install Q-Vet from each partition in the system.
Failure to do so may result in the loss of customer data at a later date
if Q-Vet is misused.
Follow the instructions listed under your operating system to de-install Q-Vet
from a partition. The qvet_uninstall programs will remove the Q-Vet
supplied tools and restore the original system tuning/configuration settings.
Tru64 UNIX
1. Stop, Terminate, and Exit from Q-Vet testing.
2. Execute the command qvet_uninstall. This will also restore the system
configuration/tuning file sysconfigtab.
3. Note: log files are retained in /usr/field/tool_logs
4. Reboot the system. You must reboot in any case, even if Q-Vet is to be
reinstalled.
OpenVMS
1. Stop, Terminate, and Exit from any Q-Vet testing.
2. Execute the command @sys$manager:qvet_uninstall. This will restore
system tuning (modparams.dat) and the original UAF settings.
3. Note: log files are retained in sys$specific:[sysmgr.tool_logs]
4. Reboot the system. You must reboot in any case, even if Q-Vet is to be
reinstalled.

2. Attach the two track mounting brackets (P/N 7452428-01)
to the two
ends of the outer track bracket with two M4 x 6 truss head screws for each
bracket . The front-track mounting bracket has an insert
for
alignment. Tighten the screw in the insert but leave the other screws loose
for later adjustment and tightening. Do the same on the second outer track
bracket.
CAUTION: It is very important to have the brackets loose until the PCI box is
mounted on the rails. Tightening the track mounting bracket at
this stage will cause difficulty and may result in jamming when
sliding the PCI box into the cabinet later in the procedure.
3. Locate the pattern of four holes on the selected area in the cabinet where
the PCI box is to be installed.
4. Place U-nuts on each of the four holes in the back cabinet rail and two Unuts on the two outermost holes in the front cabinet rail .
5. Align the mounting rail brackets with the front and rear of the cabinet rails
and attach the mounting rail bracket to the cabinet rails with two M5
screws on the outermost holes of each mounting rail bracket .
6. Mount the second rail on the other side of the cabinet following steps 3 to 5
above.

CAUTION: Proper alignment during the insertion of the PCI box in the cabinet
is critical. Two people are needed to lift the PCI box and slide it
gently into the ball bearing track. Any mishandling or
misalignment at this stage could damage the hardware and result
in jamming.
Install the PCI box as follows:
1. Lift the PCI box and gently insert the rear sides of the inner tracks fastened
on the sides of the PCI box into the outer ball bearing tracks attached to the
cabinet. Visually align the track to the bearings and slide the PCI box all
the way in maintaining steady alignment until fully engaged. Slide the PCI
box out and in again to ensure free movement on the track. Tighten the
screws mounting the brackets to the cabinet rails.
using two M4
2. Attach the latching bracket to the side of the PCI box
screws. Since you may need to adjust these screws later, do not tighten
them at this point. Repeat this step at the opposite side of the PCI box.
3. Push the PCI box gently into the cabinet. The plastic latches should engage
with the latch retainer brackets on the cabinet. If this happens, you should
hear a latching click and the PCI box should sit snug and firm in the
cabinet. If the PCI box does not latch into place, pull it out and adjust the
position of the latching brackets. You may need to make these adjustments
a couple of times before a successful latching occurs.

4. If shipping the system, install the shipping brackets on each side of the
cabinet (see Figure 5–3) using U-nuts and M5 screws to hold the PCI box
securely in place.
CAUTION: It is absolutely necessary to install the shipping brackets before
moving the cabinet. Failure to install the shipping brackets
while moving the cabinet could be hazardous as the retainer
latch may disengage. Shocks and vibrations may also cause
component damage.
5. Attach the power cable
to J1 for a single-box system and to J7 of the first
AC input box (Figure 5–5). If there is redundant power, then attach J2 to
J8. Attach the console serial bus (CSB) cable
to the J9 connector on the
PCI box.

Upgrades Using B4166 and
B4168 CPUs
Upgrading original systems depends upon whether the customer decides to
retain the older, slightly slower CPUs or not. There are three types of
upgrades:
•
Adding CPUs to a (black) system that always had B4166 CPUs. See Section 5.4.
•
Replacing B4125 CPUs in a (blue) system with B4166 or B4168 CPUs.
•
Adding B4166 or B4168 CPUs to a (blue) system containing B4125 CPUs.
If the customer decides to retain the older CPUs, the upgrade consists of adding
new CPUs, system box(es), and updating system firmware. See Section A.1.
If the customer decides to replace old CPUs with new ones, the upgrade
consists of replacing/adding new CPUs, replacing/adding system box(es),
replacing or changing the speed of the system clock, changing the system
cosmetics, and updating system firmware. See Section A.2.
NOTE: Whatever the type of upgrade, the SRM and microprocessor firmware
must be brought to a minimum revision prior to performing hardware
changes.
For B4166 CPUs – V6.0-514
For B4168 CPUs – V6.3

Upgrades Retaining Older CPUs
These upgrades consist of adding new CPUs and new system boxes.
Follow the procedures in Chapter 5 for adding new CPUs and adding a new
system box. Table A–1 describes the different CPUs. The CPU derives its
operating clock speed from the system clock. The B4125 CPU is not supported
when the system clock is run at 9.0 ns.
Be sure to update the firmware. See Section A.2.1.

Upgrades Using B4166 and B4168 CPUs
A-3
From outside the box, there is no easy way to visually distinguish between the
two system boxes; to see the components that differ requires looking inside the
box. The best way to determine which box is in the system is to use the show
fru command. The 54-class part number is listed on the QBBx line when the
show fru command is issued from either the SCM monitor or the SRM console.
Configuration Rules
The original (blue) system upgrade is governed by the following rules:
1. The BA51A-AA, BA, and DA system boxes can all coexist in a system.
2. The B4125 CPUs run at 731 MHz and require a 9.6 ns system clock. B4125
CPUs are not supported with the 9.0 ns system clock.
3. B4125 CPUs have 4 Mbytes of B-cache. When in a QBB in a BA51A-BA or
DA system box, firmware configures these CPUs to be consistent with the
amount of B-cache available.
4. The B4166 and B4168 CPUs can operate at different speeds and use
different amounts of B-cache depending upon the system box they are in,
the system clock speed, and whether they are configured with the B4125
CPU. See Table A–1.
5. The B4166 CPU requires that the SRM console and microprocessor
firmware be at V6.0-514 or higher.
6. The B4168 CPU requires that the SRM console and microprocessor
firmware be at V6.3 or higher.

Upgrades Replacing Older CPUs
These upgrades consist of updating the firmware, replacing old CPUs,
old system box(es), and changing the speed of the system clock.
A.2.1
Firmware Requirements
Before replacing anything, upgrade the system firmware to V6.0-514
or a later revision if you are installing B4166 CPUs, or to V6.3 or a
later revision if installing B4168 CPUs.

Removal (Requires two people)
1.
Once the system is powered off and the AC circuit breakers are in the Off position,
access the system boxes to be removed.
2.
Place an ESD mat, two of which are included with the system box spare, on two
horizontal surfaces, one in front of the machine and one in back.
3.
Remove all modules from the front and rear QBBs. Place them on the ESD mats.
4.
Move the cables (global port and clock) out of the system box. Pay close attention
to clock cable routing since you will want to put the cables back the same way.
5.
Disconnect the power cable from the backplane in the system box. Move the cable
out of the box to the rear of the system.
6.
Disconnect the ground cable connected to the backplane stiffener and move it out
of the way.
7.
Disconnect the power cable from the rear of the system box.
8.
Disconnect the signal cables from the front of the system box.
9.
At the front of the system, loosen the three Phillips head screws holding the upper
system box locking bracket . Slide the bracket
up and tighten the middle
screw to hold it up.
10. Loosen the three Phillips head screws holding the lower system box locking
and the system box to the frame and slide it down.
bracket
11. Slide the system box from the front of the system cabinet.
Replacement
Reverse the steps outlined in the removal procedure. Do not put the modules into the new
system box and then try to put the full box back into the system cabinet. Once the new
system box is in place, transfer all the modules from the ESD mats to the new system box
except the CPUs and global port modules (these modules are being replaced).
A-8 AlphaServer GS160/320 Upgrade Manual
A.2.3
CPU Replacement
As part of the system box replacement, replace the old B4125 CPUs
with the new B4166 or B4168 CPUs.
CAUTION: The B4180-BD and B4181-BD global ports are required for the
BA51A-BA system box and 8-Mbyte B-cache support. The B4180-BE and B4181-BE
global ports are required for the BA51A-DA system box and 16-Mbyte B-cache support.
Do not swap in the B4180-BC or B4181-BC modules when configuring the system.
The B4180-BE and B4181-BE global port modules are also backward compatible with
earlier version BA51A-*A system boxes.

Dealing with the System Clock
There are two variants of the system clock: one can be set to different
frequencies, the other is fixed. If the upgrade kit does not have a new
clock module, change the clock frequency (Section A.3.1). If the
upgrade includes a new clock module (30-56061-03), replace the clock
(Section A.3.2).
A.3.1
Changing Clock Module Switch Settings
Two switch packs on the clock module control the clock frequency. If
no B4125 CPUs are in the system, the clock can run at the faster speed
(9.0 ns).

The switch packs on the master clock control the speed of the system. When
B4125 CPUs are in the system, the clock runs at 9.6 ns. To set the system
speed to 9.0 ns, access the clock module and change the switches.
Clock Module Access
1. At the rear of the system remove the EMI covers from the left side of the
H-switch.
2. Remove the upper H-switch power supply. The clock module is now
exposed.
3. Check the bit settings on the two switches. See Figure A–2 for switch
orientation and bit settings.

Figure A–4 shows the location of the S1 switch that must be changed if the
module is to be in a QBB with a B4125 module.
As viewed here, the switch would be set to the left for 1224/1001 MHz speeds;
this is the default position. When set to the right, the switch allows the module
to operate with a B4125 module running at 731 MHz.
