Setting the RRD42 SCSI ID
Setting the RRD42 SCSI ID
Verify the
Jumpers
Before installing the RRD42 drive, verify the positions of the
removable electrical connectors, called jumpers, on the rear of
the drive, as follows:
Turn the RRD42 drive so that the rear of the drive is facing
you. Locate the Mode jumper position and the SCSI ID jumper
positions 0, 1, and 2, shown in Figure 2–2.
The Mode
Jumper
Be sure the Mode jumper is in place. This jumper must be in
place to use the drive with the VMS operating system.
The SCSI
Jumpers
Verify that SCSI ID jumper 2 is in place and SCSI ID jumpers 0
and 1 are removed, as shown in Figure 2–2. This is the default
setting for SCSI ID 4, the SCSI ID setting that your RRD42
drive normally uses.
Changing the
SCSI Default
Default settings should be changed only when a system is
configured with more than one of a particular device. You are
responsible for the SCSI ID settings on your equipment.
If you want to change the setting, choose a new ID from
Table B–1. Carefully remove or replace jumpers, referring to the
SCSI settings in Figure 2–2. Use tweezers or another small tool
to change the jumpers.
Save any SCSI jumpers you remove. You may need them later.
Unique SCSI ID
Each SCSI device must have a unique SCSI ID. Never set two or
more SCSI devices to the same SCSI ID; the system will not be
able to communicate with the devices.

Setting the SCSI ID
Setting the SCSI ID
Verifying the
SCSI ID
Before installing the drive in the system, you need to verify the
SCSI ID on the drive.
1. Turn the RX26 drive so that the left side of the drive is
facing you. Locate the SCSI ID switches 1, 2, and 3, as
shown in Figure 3–2.
2. Verify that the switches are set to the correct positions (left
to right) as shown, for SCSI ID 5:
Switch 1 = Down
Switch 2 = Up
Switch 3 = Down
This is the default setting for SCSI ID 5, the SCSI setting that
your RX26 drive normally uses.
CAUTION
Do not use a pencil to set the SCSI ID switches. Graphite
particles can damage the switches.
Changing the
Default Setting
Default settings should be changed only when a system is
configured with more than one of a particular device. You are
responsible for the SCSI ID settings on your equipment. If you
want to change the setting, choose a new ID from Table B–1, and
refer to the SCSI ID settings shown in Figure 3–2.
Unique SCSI ID
Each SCSI device must have a unique SCSI ID. Never set two or
more SCSI devices to the same SCSI ID; the system will not be
able to communicate with the devices.

Using the RX26 Diskettes
Write-Protecting
a Diskette
Write-protecting a diskette prevents accidental overwriting or
erasure of data on the diskette. For example, if you are using a
diskette to install software applications on your system, you may
want to protect the information on the diskette.
Write-Protect
Switch
Functions
Before you use a diskette, check its write-protect position (see
Figure 3–17). When the write-protect switch is in the down
position , you can read information on the diskette, but you
cannot add information. When the switch is in the up position
, you can write data onto the diskette.

Verify the
Jumpers
Before installing the TZK10 drive, verify the positions of the
removable electrical connectors, called jumpers, on the rear of
the drive, as follows:
1. Turn the TZK10 drive so that the rear of the drive is facing
you.
2. Locate the Parity jumper and the SCSI ID jumpers 2, 1, and
0, shown in Figure 4–2.
Parity Jumper
Be sure the Parity jumper is in. This jumper must be in place to
use the drive with the VMS operating system.
The SCSI
Jumpers
Verify that the SCSI ID jumpers 2 and 0 are attached and SCSI
ID jumper 1 is removed, as shown in Figure 4–2.
This is the default setting for SCSI ID 5, the SCSI ID setting
that your TZK10 drive normally uses.
Changing the
SCSI Default
Default settings should be changed only when a system is
configured with more than one of a particular device. You are
responsible for the SCSI ID settings on your equipment.
If you want to change the setting, choose a new ID from
Table B–1. Carefully remove or replace jumpers, referring to the
SCSI settings shown in Figure 4–2. Use tweezers or another
small tool to change the jumpers.
Save any SCSI jumpers you remove. You may need them later.
Unique SCSI ID
4–4 TZK10 Tape Drive
Each SCSI device must have a unique SCSI ID. Never set two or
more SCSI devices to the same SCSI ID; the system will not be
able to communicate with the devices.

The following sections explain how to use and care for tape
cartridges.
Handling and
Storing TZK10
Tape Cartridges
Take the following precautions when handling and storing tape
cartridges:
•
Avoid dropping or striking cartridges.
•
Keep cartridges out of direct sunlight, away from heaters
and other sources of heat.
•
Store cartridges where the temperature is between 10°C and
40°C (50°F and 104°F).
•
If a cartridge has been exposed to extreme heat or cold, allow
it to stabilize at room temperature for the same amount of
time as it was exposed, up to 24 hours.
TZK10 Tape Drive 4–21
Using the TZK10 Tape Drive
•
Avoid placing cartridges near sources of electromagnetic
interference, such as terminals, motors, and video or X-ray
equipment. Any tape exposed to a magnetic field can lose
information.
•
Store a cartridge in a dust-free environment where the
relative humidity is between 20% and 80%.
•
Store a cartridge in its protective container, on edge or
stacked. However, when stacking cartridges, do not stack
more than five high.
•
Place an identification label only in the space provided for
the label on top of the cartridge.
For further information refer to the TZK10 Cartridge Tape Drive
Owner’s Guide.

Address
Switches
Before you can use the TLZ06 drive, check the mode and SCSI
address switches to make sure that they are set for the desired
operating system and SCSI address. See Figure 5–2 for the
location of these switches.
Selecting the
SCSI Address
Switches 3, 2, and 1 allow you to select a unique SCSI address
for each drive. When switches 3, 2, and 1 are set as "down/up/
down". The drive is set for SCSI address 5, the default address
for a tape drive.
If you are using only one tape drive, you may leave the SCSI
switches at the default address. If you are using more than one
tape drive, you will need to select a unique SCSI address for
each tape drive.
Changing the
Default
Default settings should be changed only when a system is
configured with more than one of a particular drive. If you want
to change the default address, choose a new ID from Table B–1,
and refer to Figure 5–2 for the SCSI setting.
Unique SCSI ID
Each drive must have a unique SCSI address. Never set two or
more drives to the same SCSI address; the system will not be
able to communicate with the drives.

Handling and Storing Tapes
Guidelines
5–20 TLZ06 Tape Drive
When handling and storing TLZ06 tape cassettes:
•
Do not drop or strike cassettes.
•
Keep cassettes out of direct sunlight, away from heaters and
other sources of heat.
•
Store cassettes where the temperature is between 10°C and
40°C (50°F and 104°F).
•
If a cassette has been exposed to extreme heat or cold, allow
it to stabilize at room temperature for the same amount of
time as it was exposed, up to 24 hours.
•
Avoid placing cassettes near sources of electromagnetic
interference, such as terminals, motors, and video or X-ray
equipment. Any tape exposed to a magnetic field can lose
information.
•
Store cassettes in a dust-free environment where the relative
humidity is between 20% and 80%.
•
Store cassettes in their protective containers, on edge or
stacked. However, when stacking cassettes, do not stack
more than five high.
•
Place an identification label only in the space provided for
the label on top of the cassette, as shown in Figure 5–17.

Write-Protecting
TLZ06 Tape
Cassettes
Write-protecting a cassette prevents accidental overwriting or
erasure of data on the cassette.
Before you use a cassette, check its write-protect switch. If you
want to write data onto the cassette, set it in position
in
Figure 5–18. If you want to read information from the cassette,
but don’t want to write information onto it, set the write-protect
in Figure 5–18.

Setting the SCSI ID
Setting the SCSI ID
Verify the SCSI
ID
Before installing the drive in the system unit, you need to
verify the position of the removable electrical connectors, called
jumpers, on the drive.
Default Settings
If your fixed disk drive was not factory-installed, it may have
been shipped with all of the jumpers attached (to prevent loss
of jumpers when shipping and unpacking). In this case, the
SCSI ID is set to 7, and you might need to change it. Digital
recommends SCSI settings 0, 1, 2, and 3 for fixed disk drives.
Save any jumpers you remove. You may need them later.
Changing the
Default Setting
Refer to the figures that follow if you need to change your SCSI
setting. You are responsible for the SCSI ID settings on your
equipment.
Unique SCSI ID
Each device must have a unique SCSI ID. Never set two or more
devices to the same SCSI ID; the system will not be able to
communicate with the devices.
SCSI ID
Settings
Figures 6–1 through 6–6 show the SCSI ID jumper settings for
the RZ2x fixed disk drives.
RZ24L Note
Remove the metal bracket on the RZ24L drive to access the SCSI
jumpers.

The synchronous communications option is a synchronous serial
communications interface that allows you to connect your system
in one of two ways:
•
Through a modem to a wide area network (WAN)
•
Directly to another system through a null modem
You must have a Wide Area Network Device Driver (WANDD)
to use the synchronous communications option. The WANDD
is a separate product; it is not automatically included with the
option. Contact your Digital sales representative to order the
WANDD.

interconnection that provides a data communications path. It
allows additional options to be installed in your system, for
instance:
•
A second Ethernet connection
•
A second SCSI bus
•
A VME (Versa Module Eurocard) adapter
•
A third-party TURBOchannel device
The TURBOchannel option comes in two packages, the adapter
package and the option package. You must install both the
adapter and the option to use the TURBOchannel.

Tests the load and empty functions of the TCA
FIFO.
Trigger test
Tests the TURBOchannel direct memory access
(DMA) functionality.
TCA size bus
Indicates if a device is connected to slot 0.
The TCA self-test invoked by the T TCA command, or when you
turn on the system, uses diagnostic light codes (Table A–2) and
error codes (Table A–3). Use a combination of each to determine
which test failed (light code) and which function failed (error
code).

A–8 TURBOchannel Testing
Running Tests with the MIPS/REX Emulator
TURBOchannel
Error Messages
The emulator’s purpose is to execute the tests that reside on
the TURBOchannel option’s ROM. While an error status code
is maintained during testing, the emulator can not diagnose
TURBOchannel hardware failures, therefore any such messages
are reported by the option. An example of an option-reported
error message follows:
?TFL: #/test message
See your TURBOchannel option user’s guide for more
information on these error messages.
Emulator Error
Messages
If the emulator reports a failure during execution of the MIPS
code, one of the following emulator messages will display:
1. ERR-MIPS - DID NOT FIND ROM IN SLOT nn
This message indicates that the emulator can not read the
ROM header in slot nn. Check option seating, check option
connector for bent pins, check option ROM for bent pins.
2. ERR-MIPS - ROM OBJECT REPORTED A SEVERE ERROR
This message is a flag to the operator that the emulator
received a "severe error status" code back from a
TURBOchannel object. The operator should check for a
"?TFL" error message, then consult the TURBOchannel
option user’s guide.
3. ERR-MIPS - BAD ADDRESS DETECTED (ADDR address),
CODE = mm
This message comes from the instruction emulator indicating
that the TURBOchannel ROM code has gone outside the
expected range of addresses permitted by the TURBOchannel
Firmware Specification. Check to see if the module and test
are supported by the emulator.

Recommended SCSI Settings
Introduction
The information in this appendix is for technically trained users
who want to do custom configurations. It explains how to set the
SCSI ID on the options you install.
What Is SCSI?
The Small Computer Systems Interface, or SCSI, is an interface
designed for connecting disk drives and other peripheral devices
to computer systems. SCSI is defined by an American National
Standards Institute (ANSI) standard and is used by computer
and peripheral vendors throughout the industry.
Recommended SCSI Settings B–1
Setting the SCSI ID
Setting the SCSI ID
Who Sets the
SCSI ID?
Digital sets each SCSI device to a SCSI ID before the equipment
leaves the factory. These settings should be changed only when
you configure a system with more than one of the same device.
You are responsible for the SCSI ID settings on your equipment.
You can add up to seven SCSI devices to the system on a
SCSI bus. All data is sent between the system and the devices
connected to the bus. Each of the seven SCSI devices is identified
by a number from 0 to 7, called a SCSI ID. Each device looks at
all the data on the bus, but receives only the data that has its
SCSI ID.
Recommended
SCSI Settings
Table B–1 lists the recommended SCSI settings for the system
unit. If you have an expansion box, be sure no device is set to
the same SCSI ID as a device in the system unit.

•
Booting from a TURBOchannel device
•
The SHOW CONFIG command and TURBOchannel devices
•
Switch setting for LCSPX and SPXg refresh rates
•

•
SPXgt graphics module removal
TURBOchannel
PMAZ
Use SCSI ID 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 for your devices on the
TURBOchannel PMAZ option; do not use SCSI ID 6 or 7. On the
VMS operating system, SCSI ID 6 is reserved for the controller,
and on the UNIX operating system, where the PMAZ option
originates, SCSI ID 7 is reserved for the controller.
Booting from a
TURBOchannel
Device
The VAXstation 4000 Models 60 and 90 do not support booting
from a TURBOchannel device.
SHOW CONFIG
Command
When you enter the SHOW CONFIG command in console mode,
it displays the TURBOchannel adapter in your system, but
does not display devices on the TURBOchannel. To display
