Caution

Ensure that you do not damage any of the CPU module components by exerting too much force on them.

a.

Press the two spring clips (marked by arrows in Figure 1–21) that secure the CPU module in position. The CPU module moves forward under the tension of the connector gaskets. Align the the keyhole cutouts so that the CPU module can be lifted off the standoff pillars

(Figure 1–21).

b.

Use your finger, in the semicircular cutout on the front edge of the

CPU module, to lift up the front edge of the CPU module (refer to

Figure 1–21).

c.

While supporting the front of the CPU module with one hand, guide the connectors on the back of the CPU module out of the corresponding cutouts on the back of the enclosure.

d.

Remove the CPU module from the enclosure.

23. To install the new CPU module, follow these steps: a.

Place the CPU module in the enclosure so that the connectors on the

CPU module align with the corresponding cutouts in the back panel of the enclosure. Use the ThinWire Ethernet port as an anchor point to adjust the position of the CPU module correctly.

b.

Align the keyhole cutouts in the CPU module with the corresponding standoff pillars in the base of the enclosure.

Caution

Ensure that you do not damage any of the CPU module components by exerting pressure on them.

c.

Press the CPU module at the two positions marked push until the spring clips lock the standoff pillars into the keyhole cutouts, securing the CPU module in position. See Figure 1–21.

24. Install the DSSI daughter card onto the CPU module (see Figure 1–22).

Align the card on the standoffs so that it is positioned above the CPU module connector, then gently seat it onto the connector and the standoffs.

1.3 Upgrade Procedures

29. Reinstall the SIMMs as follows, beginning with the module closest to the front of the enclosure (Figure 1–29).

Caution

When installing a SIMM, note that the connectors on the CPU module are keyed so that you cannot install the module with an incorrect orientation. Do not try to force a module into a connector with an incorrect orientation.

Note

The SIMMs must be reinstalled into the same slots they came from.

1.

Tip the memory module rearward.

2.

Slide the module into its connector while still tipped rearward, and tip it back upright.

Mandatory Return Procedure and Forms

The original CPU module must be returned to Digital Equipment Corporation.

Digital services personnel must follow the instructions for repackaging and returning the original CPU. The instructions apply only to United States area installations.

For installations outside the United States area, contact the local Digital

Equipment Corporation office for return destination instructions.

A.1 Return Procedure

Note

Customers who do not return their original CPU modules will be charged a fee.

Return the original CPU module as follows:

1.

Obtain the serial number of the system being converted. 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 conversion. Failure to return the modules will result in a penalty charge. Installation of hardware by Digital services personnel is required."

4.

Pack the original CPU module using the packaging material set aside from the carton of the conversion kit.

Mandatory Return Procedure and Forms A–1

Mandatory Return Procedure and Forms

A.1 Return Procedure

Pack the module first in the nickel-plated bag, then in the pink plastic wrapping, and finally in the box. Do not seal the box for shipping until you have included all necessary paperwork.

5.

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

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

6.

Contact your local Digital CAS office to obtain information for the

Installation Receipt and the Return Material Checklist in Section A.2.

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 Equipment Corporation.

7.

Complete both copies of the Installation Receipt.

The first copy is the customer’s receipt. It shows that the installation was completed and that Digital services contacted CAS.

Return the second copy to Digital services along with the original CPU module card so that the customer does not incur a penalty charge.

8.

Complete the Returned Material Checklist.

Return the checklist with the original module.

9.

Place the self-adhesive mailing label on the box to be returned.

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