CHAPTER 1 RCI Build Procedure
This chapter explains the following items regarding the initial build procedure of the
Remote Cabinet Interface (RCI) in the installation work.
- RCI Overview
- RCI command
- RCI Setup
1.1
RCI Overview
RCI is an interface to connect RCI Host (general name for main units supporting RCI
and for RCI I/O units).
In this manual, a base cabinet and an I/O unit that support the RCI are referred to as an
RCI Host and an RCI I/O unit, respectively. Furthermore, RCI Hosts and RCI I/O
units are generally referred to as RCI device.
To connect RCI I/O units or to use the RCI asynchronous monitoring functions for an
FJ cluster, a setup using the RCI setup commands is required in addition to the
connection with RCI cables.
1.1.1
Overview of RCI connection
There are two types of main unit: midrange servers equipped with one RCI and highend servers equipped with two RCIs.
I/O units include units equipped with one RCI and units equipped with two RCIs.
The following figures show different RCI connection patterns:

1.2 RCI command
1.2
RCI command
RCI commands are used to display RCI configuration information and set node
addresses.
To connect I/O units equipped with RCI ports, a setup using RCI commands is
required in addition to the connection with RCI cables.
Remarks: When you use the terminal function of the External power controller,
perform the setrcic command and confirm setting or connection of the
External power controller. For details of the setrcic command, see the RCI
User's Guide or man page.
1.2.1
Command list
The RCI commands are explained below.
Table 1.1 Command list
Command
setrci -c stat
Function
Displays RCI configuration information. This command
is used after the RCI setup to verify
that the settings of the host and I/O units have been made
correctly.
setrci -c init
Initializes the RCI configuration information.
If other host units are connected through the RCI, the
RCI settings must be initialized on each host unit.
You can use this command if the system is powered off.
setrci -c set [host_no] Sets up an RCI Host node.
Before this command can be executed, the RCI settings
must already have been initialized.
host_noÅF Integer numbers from 1 to 32 are assigned
in this order.
setrci -c initconfig
Assigns an RCI address to an I/O unit connected via RCI.
Before this command can be executed, the RCI Host
node settings must already have been made.
setrci -c addconfig
Makes the RCI settings for the case that a host unit or an
I/O unit is added.

Connect an RCI branching connector to each of the RCI ports, and connect them with
RCI cables by using a daisy-chain connection.
Connect an RCI terminating resistor to the branching connector at either end of the
RCI connection. Refer to Section 1.3.5, "Connection of RCI."
5 Turn on the AC input to all the RCI device which are in the RCI connection.
6 Execute the setrci -c set command to make the settings of the host node.
Since the main unit is the first unit, host_no is 1.

Connection of RCI
According to the following procedure, connect different units with RCI cables by
using a daisy-chain connection.
1 Prepare RCI branching connectors and RCI terminating resistors.
All of them are supplied with the main unit.
2 Connect the main unit and I/O units with RCI cables (see Figure 1.9 and
Figure 1.10.)
1 Connect the RCI branching connector (1) to the RCIport on an XSCF unit of the
main unit.
2 Connect the RCI branching connector and the RCI port of an I/O unit with an RCI
cable (2) by using a daisy-chain connection.

1.3 RCI Setup
Remarks: Up to 32 RCIs including the RCI main unit can be connected. Use the
repeater function of the external power controller to extend the cable length
used and to increase the number of connected RCI device. Note that the
maximum RCI cable length is 150 meters.
Remarks: The external power controller is included in the number of RCI device

z Pattern A
1
2
Check the RCI setup procedure, the RCI address value and the connection.
1
Check the setting of the RCI address and the duplicate of the RCI address by setrci -c stat command.
2
Check whether the othr RCI host that doesn't execute the RCI initialization is connected.
In the case of anomaly, retry RCI setup in correct procedure.
z Pattern B
1
Check the RCI address value of current unit by setrci -c stat command.
2
In the case of anomaly, retry RCI setup in correct procedure.
z Pattern C
1
Check the RCI address value of current unit and other unit by setrci -c stat command.
2
In the case of anomaly, retry RCI setup in correct procedure.
z Pattern D
1
Check whether 95 and more units of RCI I/O unit (include the External power controller) are not connected.
2
When 95 and more units are connected, change the connection configuration to 94 and less units (include the
External power controller), and retry RCI setup.
z Pattern E
1
Replace the XSCF board.
2
After the replacement of the XSCF unit, retry RCI setup.
z Pattern F
1
Check whether RCI address value of the Line selector switch is not duplicated.
2
If the duplicate, change the RCI address of the Line selector switch, and retry RCI setup. To change the RCI
address of the Line selector switch, refer to its manuals.
z Pattern G
Check the state of XSCF, and execute either of the following operations.
When XSCF reboot or redundancy are working, execute the setrci command after these are completed.
If the above-mentioned doesn't correspond, retry the setrci command.

A.2
In the Case Where RCI Status of RCI Host
Changes From ACTIVE to INACTIVE
Remarks: When this problem has occurred, do not replace the XSCF unit because it
is not a failure of the XSCF unit.
This problem is occurred by the mistake of the RCI construction procedure and the
RCI connection.
t occurrs when the same RCI address is set and constructed, or, when connecting with
the RCI network of the construction of the RCI host that has not been initialized.
Confirm whether to correspond to this problem. The procedure is the following:
1 Excute showlogs command, and check whether RCI configuration conflict is
generated in error log.
2 When that message was generated, check the RCI establishment procedure,
the RCI address value and the connection.
3 In the case of anomaly, correct the RCI address or the connection of relevant
device according to the change procedure of each device.
4 Refer to Chapter 1.3.4, "When a RCI Host is added later" and retry RCI
establishment.
