1 Verify Site Preparation

Caution

Review your system warranty. It may require that a Digital service representative install your system to prevent damage to equipment or software.

If you are installing a DSSI VAXcluster configuration, and you are a licensed self-maintenance customer, you should be familiar with the contents of your DSSI

VAXcluster Installation and Troubleshooting manual.

Caution

If you are installing a DSSI configuration, to prevent system performance degradation or data corruption caused by excessive ground offset voltages, make sure your site power distribution system does not have any of the grounding faults listed in your Site Preparation manual.

The installation instructions that follow assume:

• Your site meets all the requirements listed in the system Site Preparation manual.

• All cables that you plan to connect to your system are in place and clearly labeled.

Terminal data cables?

Telephone cables?

Network cables?

• You have the following tools (not included in your shipment).

Scissors

Flat-blade screwdriver

Phillips (cross-point) screwdriver

Adjustable wrench

Voltmeter calibrated for millivolts

MLO-007164

9 Connect the System Power Cable

CAUTION

Do not connect your computer system to an IT power system (a power system without a directly grounded neutral conductor). To prevent damage, your system should be plugged into a dedicated (isolated) ground circuit.

1.

Make sure the system Power switch is set to off (0).

56

2.

Make sure all devices connected to your system are turned off.

Printer?

External modem?

Console terminal?

Expander?

3.

Find the power cable shipped with your system.

100 - 125 V

200 - 250 V

MLO-007165

4.

Make sure the plug end of that cable matches your wall outlet or other power source.

57

5.

Insert the socket end of the cable into the power supply connector.

MLO-007166

6.

Insert the plug end of the cable into your wall outlet or other power source.

10 Turn On the System and Select a Language

Caution

Do not operate your system without Digital module covers. They protect the equipment, maintain proper airflow for cooling, and provide EMI-RFI containment that meets international regulatory standards.

1.

Turn on your console terminal.

Wait until the terminal performs its self-tests successfully.

2.

If an expander is connected to your system, turn it on.

Make sure the AC indicator on the expander power supply glows orange. If a Power Control Bus cable is installed, the expander will not power up until the system is turned on.

3.

Turn on your system.

Make sure the AC Present indicator, next to the Power switch, glows orange.

58

Within a few moments the following language selection menu, or something like it, appears on your console terminal.

Note

If you are using an older terminal that does not support multiple languages, this menu does not appear and the system defaults to English

(United States/Canada).

Note

If you do not select a language within 30 seconds, the system defaults to

English (United States/Canada).

Within a few moments the console terminal displays a series of numbers as the system tests itself. This example shows that display after successful testing.

If the self-tests do not complete successfully, refer to your system

Troubleshooting and Diagnostics manual to find the source of the problem.

5.

If the self-tests complete successfully, save the language you selected by turning the Power-Up Mode switch to Run mode.

11 Close the System Doors

Note

If you plan to run diagnostic software immediately following the installation, leave the upper door open. If you plan to start up factoryinstalled software immediately following the installation, leave both doors open.

1.

Push gently at the top right of the upper door and the bottom right of the lower door.

MLO-004030

2.

Turn the key to the middle position (both doors locked) or to the top position

(upper door unlocked).

The installation is complete. You can now place the system anywhere you want.

61

12 After Installation

1.

Read your system Operation manual to learn how to use the system. Then make sure the system is turned on and operating normally.

2.

If you installed a configuration consisting of two or more enclosures connected by a common DSSI bus, use a voltmeter to make sure the ground offset voltage between any two enclosures does not exceed one of the limits listed below.

Total Bus Length

Up to 20 meters (65 feet)

20 to 25 meters (65 to 82 feet)

Allowable Ground Offset Voltage

DC AC (rms)

200 millivolts

40 millivolts

70 millivolts

14 millivolts

Total bus length includes all DSSI cable lengths, internal and external. Your

DSSI VMScluster Installation and Troubleshooting manual tells you how to calculate internal cable lengths.

To measure the ground offset voltage, connect the voltmeter leads to bare

(unpainted) metal on each enclosure. If the voltage exceeds one of the limits, call your Digital service representative.

Note

The ground offset voltage may vary over time, if equipment is added to your system or plugged into your power outlets. Therefore, this measurement does not guarantee that the voltage will remain within acceptable limits.

3.

Run the diagnostic software for your system as described in your system

Troubleshooting and Diagnostics manual.

4.

If you have factory-installed software on your system, see the VMS Factory

Installed Software User Guide for the startup procedure. Otherwise, install the software that you ordered with your system.

Note

Systems with VMS factory-installed software have a yellow sticker on the front panel of the ISE containing that software.
