1.4 Upgrade Guidelines
Before removing and replacing the drives and modules:
•
Make sure no tape cassette is in the tape drive.
•
Dismount the device by using a console command.
During removal and replacement:
•
Do not disconnect the external DSSI or SCSI communications cable unless the system is shut
down. Doing so while the system is running can cause a system failure and possibly cause
customer data loss.
•
Save the hardware; the metric screws are not readily available.
•
Observe all electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions.

Removing and Replacing the Controller Module
This chapter describes how to:
•
Remove the TFK70 DSSI controller module and replace it with the new controller module
•
Remove the old SCSI controller module and replace it with the new SCSI controller module
CAUTIONS
To maintain stability, slide only one TF837 or TZ857 subsystem from its enclosure at a
time.
Do not disconnect the external DSSI or SCSI communications cable at the rear chassis.
Doing so can cause an error on the DSSI or SCSI bus.
2.1 Warm Swap Procedure
Writer’s Note: Does this apply to a SCSI device?
By using the warm swap procedure, you can perform the upgrade without powering down the
host system, or without taking all other devices off-line and disconnecting the DSSI or SCSI bus.
The warm swap procedure is the most efficient for customers because users can operate on the
system while you do the procedure. The warm swap procedure lets you:
•
Remove and replace the controller module while the host system is operating.
•
Replace the new controller module parameters with the original controller module
parameters, preventing multiple device names and images from being listed.
The rest of this section applies to the TF857 subsystem upgrade. If you are doing a TZ867
subsystem upgrade, go to Section 2.1.3.
2.1.1 Collecting and Recording Original Controller Module Parameters
Each TFK70 DSSI controller module comes from the manufacturer with a unique node name and
system ID number. When you power up a TF837 subsystem with a newly installed controller
module, the new parameters transfer to the host, and are added to the device list seen by the
host.
You must set the DSSI node ID on the new controller module the same as the DSSI node ID on
the old controller module. The new subsystem will have a new node name and new system ID;
you can change both through PARAMS, if required.
The device list is updated only during a reboot. Therefore, you may see the ‘‘ghost name and
ID’’ of a controller module that you have removed. The previous parameters remain, although no
physical device is present.
2–1
2–2 Removing and Replacing the Controller Module
Before performing the warm swap procedure, you must collect and record the original controller
module parameters. In particular, you must note the following information during the procedure:
•
Current node name — This is the parameter known as NODENAME.
•
Unit number — This is the parameter known as UNITNUM.
•
System ID number — This is the parameter known as SYSTEMID.
You can obtain these parameters in one of three ways:
•
Refer to the system site guide in which the parameters may have been recorded during
installation.
•
Use the ANALYZE/SYSTEM command to obtain information from the system.
•
Use the SET HOST/DUP command to read the parameters from EEPROM (if the controller
module is accessible).
You can use PARAMS to set your current parameter values into the new controller module. See
the TF857 Magazine Tape Subsystem Owner’s Manual for more information on using PARAMS.
2.1.1.1 Using the ANALYZE/SYSTEM Command
At the DCL prompt ($), enter the following VMS command:
$ ANALYZE/SYSTEM
The system displays the system analyzer prompt:
SDA>
At this prompt, enter the command:
SDA> SHOW DEVICE MI
to list the node name, system ID number, and unit number.
The following example is an output screen example showing a node name, unit number, and
system ID. The node name is TAPE1; the unit number is the final digit in the MIA0 portion of
the node name. In this case, the unit number is 0. The system ID is 3C3643CABC35.

Once you find the correct information, proceed with the warm swap procedure.
2.1.1.2 Using the SET HOST/DUP Command
Use the SET HOST/DUP command to read the parameters from EEPROM as well as access the
PARAMS> prompt to set parameters.
NOTE
Before running the SET HOST/DUP command, be sure to load the FYDRIVER local
program by using this command:
$ MCR SYSGEN CONN FYA0/NOADAP
The following is an example output screen showing the information collected with the SET

2.1.4 Preparing the Module Tray for the TF857 Subsystem
To prepare the module tray for the new controller module:
1. Pull the module tray forward and push out the drive communications cable.
2. Open the metal clamp at the left front of the module tray. Press the clamp tips down to the
tray bottom to prevent cable damage (Figure 2–6).
3. Locate, in the tray, the plastic spacer bar containing four countersunk holes. Remove the two
screws. SAVE THESE SCREWS. You will reuse them when you install the new module.
4. Relocate the loader transfer assembly communications cable to the opposite side of the tray.
To do this, release with pliers or a screwdriver, one of two plastic, hold-down tabs for the
power harness (Figures 2–3 and 2–6). It does not matter which one of the two hold-down
tabs you release.
5. Slip the loader transfer assembly communications cable out from under the power harness.
Unfold the cable until it is straight. Slide the cable forward until 3-1/2 inches of cable are
remaining beyond the hold-down tab. Fold the cable 90 degrees to the right, just beyond the
hold-down tab. (Be sure to rotate the cable with the cable’s red side on the forward side.
Then it will correctly connect to the new controller module.)
2.1.5 Unpacking the TF857 Subsystem
To unpack the upgrade kit:
1. Take the TF85 tape subsystem out of the upgrade kit.
2. Disconnect the power cable (PN 17–02614–01) from the new controller module and the TK85
drive. This power cable is not used for this application.
3. Unsnap the controller module from the metal tabs of the drive.
4. Disconnect the drive communications cable from the new controller module.
5. Put aside the new controller module.
6. Unscrew the noncaptive screws of the metal module clip with hold-down tabs on the TK85
drive and put aside the drive.
2.1.6 Installing the New Controller Module for the TF857 Subsystem
To install the new controller module:
NOTE
Before installing the new controller module, make sure the node ID of the new
controller module matches the node ID of the TFK70 DSSI controller module (Figures
2–4 and 2–5).
1. Position the plastic spacer bar with the threaded holes of the module tray (Figure 2–6). Make
sure the holes are in front of where the screws are going.
2. On top of the spacer bar, fasten the metal module clip (from the TK85 drive) with the metal
module clip tabs in the rear (Figure 2–6). The ends of the plastic spacer bar and the ends of
the metal module clip should be even. Use the two screws you saved.
3. Seat the new controller module carrier with the prongs in the horizontal tray slots at the
front of the tray (Figure 2–6).

1. Seat the new controller module carrier with the prongs in the horizontal tray slots at the
front of the tray (Figure 2–6).
2. With the new controller module tilted up, attach the loader transfer assembly
communications cable to the module (Figure 2–7).
3. Gently lower the controller module into the tray to avoid damaging the loader transfer
assembly communications cable. Push on the two rear corners of the controller module to
avoid damaging the module.
4. While snapping in the tabs of the metal module clip, press into the clip tabs, the plastic tabs
in the rear of the controller module.
5. Attach the power harness and attach the SCSI cable to the controller module.
6. Connect the remote ID cable to the remote ID connector on the module. The connector is
labeled "Remote ID".
Writer’s Note: Does this step apply?
7. Slide the controller module tray gently into the rear chassis to avoid damaging cables
(Figure 2–8).

6. Use a screwdriver to disengage the four captive screws that secure the drive at the right
(Figure 3–2) and left (Figure 3–3) sides of the rear chassis. Each screw is recessed inside a
nut. Do not attempt to loosen these nuts.
NOTE
Remember the position of the old drive handle. The drive handle of the new drive
needs to be in the same position as that of the old drive handle when you install
the new drive.

7. Disengage the handle motor assembly from the drive handle by pushing or pulling the plastic
tab on the handle motor assembly about one inch to the right (Figure 3–4). (You may have
to move the drive slightly to release the plastic tab.) Rotate the black plastic tab toward the
handle motor assembly.

8. Slide the drive toward you, almost fully out of the rear chassis.
9. Disconnect the 4-pin power supply cable and drive communications cable (flat ribbon cable)
from the rear of the drive, and remove the drive from the rear chassis. (Can this step apply
to TF857 and TZ867? If so, then delete next step.)
10. Disconnect the 4-pin power supply cable from the rear of the drive, and remove the drive
from the rear chassis.
3–6 Removing and Replacing the Drive
3.2 Installing the TK85 or TK86 Tape Drive
To install the TK85 or TK86 tape drive:
1. Insert the tape drive halfway into the rear chassis, and for the TK85 drive, keep the
controller communications cable on top of the drive.
2. Attach the 4-pin power cable to the TK85 drive.
3. Attach the 4-pin power cable and connect the drive communications cable to the TK86 drive.
(Can the last two steps be combined? or does each drive have a separate step?)
CAUTION
Carefully position the cables when sliding the drive into the chassis, ensuring no
damage occurs from snagging.
4. Slide the drive into the rear chassis; align the drive handle shaft with the handle motor
coupling shaft (Figure 3–5).
You can see the drive handle shaft by looking down on the drive from the top. A half-moon
cutout in the drive bezel accommodates the shaft and coupling assembly.
5. Make sure the new drive handle is in the same position as that of the old drive handle when
you removed the old drive. Engage the drive handle shaft with the handle motor coupling
shaft:
a. Rotate the plastic tab into the horizontal position and push the handle motor coupling
shaft toward the drive; it will slip partially onto the drive handle shaft.
NOTE
Locate the plastic tab on the drive. This tab, along with a small metal tab
(write-protect switch), is inside the cartridge opening adjacent to the Tape In
Use indicator on the bezel. This assembly locks the drive handle and must be
pushed to the right to lift the handle.
CAUTION
Failure to release the plastic tab before lifting the handle could cause damage;
do not force the handle against the locking mechanism.
b. With the handle in the correct position, apply pressure to the handle motor coupling
shaft until it is fully engaged. You may need to wiggle the drive slightly to seat the shaft
firmly.
6. Engage the four captive screws on the rear chassis with the threaded holes on the drive.
You may have to pull up the drive slightly to engage the captive screws. Do not completely
tighten the screws; use the following sequence:
Left front
Left rear
Right front
Right rear
7. Then tighten screws in the following order:
Left front
Left rear
Right front
Right rear

8. Do this step for the TF837 to TF857 subsystem upgrade only. Pull the module tray forward
and pass the drive communications cable through the opening in front of the connector on
the controller module. Connect the drive communications cable to the controller module.
Carefully lead the cables through so the cables do not interfere with the mechanisms.
9. Close the loader transfer assembly.
CAUTION
If the handle motor coupling shaft is seated correctly, the loader transfer assembly
closes and latches without difficulty. Use caution in closing the loader transfer
assembly and push the black plastic tab farther toward the drive, if necessary, to
seat it fully. Be careful not to damage the heads on the drive mounting screws.
10. Slide the subsystem fully into the enclosure.
CAUTION
Carefully guide the cables while sliding the tray in or out. Because the cables are
loose, they could interfere with the handle down optic sensor.
11. At the rear of the unit, slide in the controller module tray and tighten the one-quarter turn
captive screws that secure the controller module tray (Figure 3–6).

12. Redress the external DSSI or SCSI communications cable(s) into the rear chassis’ cable
restraints.
13. For the TF837 to TF857 subsystem upgrade only, redress the subsystem’s ac power cable into
the cable restraints.
14. Verify a secure power connection at both ends of the power cable.
15. Release the medallion at the top right. Above the operator control panel, insert a screwdriver
into the louver next to the medallion center and pry out the medallion. Insert the new
medallion into the medallion opening.
16. Remove the old subsystem serial number label at the back of the rear chassis. Add the new
subsystem serial number label in the same spot as that of the old serial number.
17. Remove the old bar code label and add the new bar code label.
The subsystem is now upgraded. Ensure the host system is rebooted to recognize the new
subsystem.

Verifying the Upgrade
To verify the upgrade is operating correctly:
1. Set the TF857 or TZ867 subsystem power switch to 1 (on). If the Power On indicator does
not light, verify that the subsystem is placed as far into the enclosure as possible.
2. Secure the rear door of the storage array.
3. Install a scratch tape in slot 0 of the magazine.
4. Install the magazine into the receiver.
5. For reading and writing purposes, load CompacTape III cartridges into the magazine. Up
to seven cartridges can be loaded. (Writer’s Note: Not sure about this next sentence for the
TZ867.) CompacTape and CompactTape II cartridges can only be read by the TK85 drive.
6. Execute LDRTST for the TF857 subsystem. (See the TF857 Magazine Tape Subsystem
Owner’s Manual for information on running local diagnostic programs and utilities.)
