They are not included in your shipment.

• Scissors

• Flat-blade screwdriver

• Phillips (cross point) screwdriver

• Adjustable wrench

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 300 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 DSSI cable (BC21M–09).

DSSI stands for Digital Storage Systems Interconnect.

VAX 4000 Model 300 Installation

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.

5.2 Connect the Terminal to the System

You will attach one end of a cable to the console module and the other end of the cable to a communication port in the back of the terminal.

• The console module is on the front of the system and covers backplane slots 1 through 5.

• The port on the back of the terminal varies with the type of terminal.

Refer to the instructions that follow to connect a VT300-series or VT400series terminal to a 120-volt or 240-volt system.

1.

Turn off the terminal.

7.5.4 Setting Up Terminal Lines

Before you can use the DFA01 modem, you must set up the operating system software to recognize the modem.

Set up the operating system software to support the following four terminal lines for the modem.

• Modem A — primary channel

• Modem A — on-line control channel (OLC)

• Modem B — primary channel

• Modem B — on-line control channel (OLC)

Refer to the 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.

Appendix A

Starting and Modifying VMS

Factory-Installed Software

This appendix tells you how to start and modify VMS factory-installed software (FIS), which is on your system disk if you ordered one or more

ISEs.

FIS must be modified to accommodate customized passwords and system environment particulars.

You make the modifications during a startup procedure that is executed when you start FIS the first time.

The requirements for modifying FIS depend on how your system will be used. For example, your system can be configured as a:

• Standalone system

• Dual-host system

• Simple VAXcluster network

• System in a more complex VAXcluster network with distributed resource sharing and sophisticated disk management

CAUTION:

If you want to modify FIS to obtain a dual-host or VAXcluster system, you should have a good understanding of DSSI architecture and

VAXcluster software operation. If you do not have that understanding, you should read the manuals listed in Section A.1 or call your Digital service representative.

A.1 Pre-Startup Requirements

Before you begin the startup procedure, you should:

1.

Determine how your system will be configured.

2.

Read through the startup procedure to make sure you have the correct information to enter for your configuration.

You should now perform the following operations.

• Register any PAKs you received with your system.

• Back up the system disk.

• Delete unwanted files.

To register PAKs:

$

@SYS$UPDATE:VMSLICENSE

Return

If you make a mistake while entering a PAK:

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 License Management Utility Manual for any additional information you may need.

Your system Operation manual provides information on backing up the system disk and deleting unwanted files. Read carefully to determine the exact sequence of backup and tailoring functions needed, based on the amount of tailoring required and the backup resources available to you.

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.

Starting and Modifying VMS Factory-Installed Software

A–11

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

VMS

VAXcluster

DECnet full-function

Host B

VMS

VAXcluster

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.
