Customer Responsibilities

Customers should not install this conversion kit unless they are qualified self-maintenance customers. Only qualified maintenance personnel should perform the installation procedure. If you are not a qualified self-maintenance customer, call Digital Customer Services to schedule a system conversion.

It is the customer’s responsibility to perform a software backup before a

Digital Customer Services representative arrives at your site.

When the conversion is complete, return the old CPU module to Digital.

Appendix A contains forms that need to be completed by the Customer

Services representative. The customer and Digital Customer Services representative must sign the forms.

Digital Customer Services Responsibilities

The Customer Service Representative should contact the customer to ensure that the customer’s software is backed up before arriving at the site.

After installation of the conversion kit, the Customer Services representative must complete the following forms and remove them from this document by tearing them along the perforated line. The forms must be signed by the customer and the Customer Services representative. The following forms are in Appendix A.

• Customer Services Worksheet

• Installation Receipt–Customer Copy

• Installation Receipt–Customer Services Copy

• Return Material Checklist

The Customer Services representative should give the customer the signed Installation Receipt–Customer Copy. The representative should include the signed Installation Receipt–Customer Services Copy with the

CPU module that is being returned to Digital to ensure the customer receives credit.

Module Return Procedure and Forms

Return of the old CPU modules to Digital is required. Customer Services personnel must ensure that the instructions to repackage and return the old CPU module to Digital are followed. The instructions apply only to

U.S. area installations.

For installations outside the U.S. area, contact the local Digital office for return destination instructions.

A.1 Return Procedure

The conversion agreement with Digital is not complete untl you take the following steps.

1.

Obtain the serial number of the system being upgraded. (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 upgrade. Failure to return the modules will result in a penalty charge. Installation of hardware by Digital Customer

Services personnel is required."

4.

Pack the old modules using the packaging material set aside from the carton of the conversion kit (quad-height module box).

Pack the modules first in the nickel-plated bag, then in the pink plastic wrapping, and finally in the box.

5.

Complete the Customer Services Worksheet in Section A.2. It documents the work you performed.

Return the worksheet to your contract administrator at the branch office.

A–2 Module Return Procedure and Forms

6.

Contact your local Digital Customer Administrative Services (CAS) office to obtain information for the Installation Receipt and the Return

Material Checklist in Section A.2. Section A.3 lists the CAS district offices and their phone numbers.

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.

7.

Complete both copies of the Installation Receipt.

The Installation Receipt–Customer Copy is the customer’s receipt. It shows that the installation was completed and that Customer Services contacted CAS.

Return the Installation Receipt–Customer Services Copy to Customer

Services along with the old modules to ensure that the customer does not incur a penalty charge.

8.

Complete the Return Material Checklist.

Return the checklist with the old modules.

9.

Place the self-adhesive mailing label on the module box you are returning.

Write the return authorization (RA) number in the space provided on the label.

10. Seal the box for shipment.

Refer questions regarding the return procedure to the local account representative.

NOTE

A nonreturn charge will be assessed to customers who do not return their old CPU modules.
