Every effort was made to ensure that the information in this document

Preventing Toll Fraud
“Toll fraud” is the unauthorized use of your telecommunications system
by an unauthorized party (for example, a person who is not a corporate
employee, agent, subcontractor, or working on your company's behalf).
Be aware that there may be a risk of toll fraud associated with your
system and that, if toll fraud occurs, it can result in substantial additional
charges for your telecommunications services.
Avaya Fraud Intervention
If you suspect that you are being victimized by toll fraud and you need
technical assistance or support, call Technical Service Center Toll Fraud
Intervention Hotline at +1 800 643 2353 for the United States and
Canada. For additional support telephone numbers, see the Avaya Web
site:
http://www.avaya.com
Select Support, then select Escalation Lists US and International.
This Web site includes telephone numbers for escalation within the
United States. For escalation telephone numbers outside the United
States, select Global Escalation List.
Providing Telecommunications Security
Telecommunications security (of voice, data, and/or video
communications) is the prevention of any type of intrusion to (that is,
either unauthorized or malicious access to or use of) your company's
telecommunications equipment by some party.
Your company's “telecommunications equipment” includes both this
Avaya product and any other voice/data/video equipment that could be
accessed via this Avaya product (that is, “networked equipment”).
An “outside party” is anyone who is not a corporate employee, agent,
subcontractor, or working on your company's behalf. Whereas, a
“malicious party” is anyone (including someone who may be otherwise
authorized) who accesses your telecommunications equipment with
either malicious or mischievous intent.
Such intrusions may be either to/through synchronous (time-multiplexed
and/or circuit-based) or asynchronous (character-, message-, or packetbased) equipment or interfaces for reasons of:
•
Utilization (of capabilities special to the accessed equipment)
•
Theft (such as, of intellectual property, financial assets, or
toll-facility access)
•
Eavesdropping (privacy invasions to humans)
•
Mischief (troubling, but apparently innocuous, tampering)
•
Harm (such as harmful tampering, data loss or alteration,
regardless of motive or intent)
Be aware that there may be a risk of unauthorized intrusions associated
with your system and/or its networked equipment. Also realize that, if
such an intrusion should occur, it could result in a variety of losses to your
company (including but not limited to, human/data privacy, intellectual
property, material assets, financial resources, labor costs, and/or legal
costs).
Your Responsibility for Your Company’s Telecommunications
Security
The final responsibility for securing both this system and its networked
equipment rests with you - an Avaya customer's system administrator,
your telecommunications peers, and your managers. Base the fulfillment
of your responsibility on acquired knowledge and resources from a
variety of sources including but not limited to:
•
Installation documents
•
System administration documents
•
Security documents
•
Hardware-/software-based security tools
•
Shared information between you and your peers
•
Telecommunications security experts
To prevent intrusions to your telecommunications equipment, you and
your peers should carefully program and configure:
•
your Avaya-provided telecommunications systems and their
interfaces
•
your Avaya-provided software applications, as well as their
underlying hardware/software platforms and interfaces
•
any other equipment networked to your Avaya products.

Platform upgrades and data migration
Use a platform upgrade when upgrading to a new hardware platform (for example,
upgrading from a SPARCserver 5 to an Enterprise 3500). The new hardware platform
is shipped from the Avaya factory with the latest CMS load. Therefore, as part of the
upgrade you will have the latest CMS load (for example, R3V9 to R3V11 or the latest
load of the same CMS version). For R3V11, a specific set of instructions is written for
the upgrade and is shipped to the customer site with the new hardware.

Preface
18 Avaya CMS Sun Ultra 5 Computer Hardware Installation, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
Introduction
Overview
The Sun Ultra 5 computer provides a hardware platform that supports call center software
applications, and is designed to do the following:
●
Increase performance with the SPARC-V9 64-bit RISC architecture (includes a 400
MHz clock and a 256 KB internal cache in the current model; older models have
different clock speeds).
●
Enhance system availability by using error-correcting memory. This memory protects
the system and data from single-bit soft errors that can occur.
●
Provide expandable performance and capabilities with a balanced architecture (all
elements of the system, CPU, memory, I/O, and graphics work at full speed).
●
Include a minimum internal disk storage space of 20.4 GB.
— A 20.4-GB EIDE primary disk drive is the current standard on Ultra 5 computers
delivered from the factory. Newer models may have larger primary disk drives. Older
models may have an 8.3-GB or a 4.3-GB primary disk drive.
— An optional 20.4-GB EIDE secondary disk drive may be ordered. This drive can be
added as the primary or secondary internal disk drive for older models of the Ultra 5
to increase disk capacity. Older models may have a 9.1-GB secondary disk drive.
●
Accommodate up to four external small computer system interface (SCSI) disk drives
and two SCSI tape drives.
●
Allow for cost-effective upgrades to disk storage and memory.

Setting up power
To set up the AC power:
!
WARNING:
DO NOT power up the computer until you have verified that the input voltage
selector switch has been set properly. Incorrect voltages will damage
system components.
1. On the back of the computer, between the power cord receptacle and the power
switch, locate the voltage selector switch. Newer models of the Ultra 5 use an
autosensing power supply and do not have a voltage selector switch.
Power
switch
Voltage selector
switch (older

u5_power.cdr
2. If your model has a voltage selector switch, set the voltage selector switch to 115 or
230 V AC depending on your installation.
3. Turn off the AC power switch on the back of the computer.
4. Plug the IEC 320 end of the power cord into the AC connector.
For installations outside of the U.S. and Canada, obtain a power cord for your local
configuration.
5. Plug the power cord from the computer into an outlet on the UPS.
A UPS provides a temporary electrical supply to a computer for several minutes,
depending on the number of components connected to the UPS. For a CMS computer,
a 2KVA minimum UPS is required for all installations. See your UPS documentation to
determine the projected amount of backup battery time for your model. If the system is
without power for longer than the backup time, the system may shut down improperly,
and the customer could lose data.
If a UPS is not being used, you must use a grounded outlet on a dedicated 15-amp
circuit.

Connecting to external interfaces
Overview
A variety of external I/O components and interfaces may be required depending on the
configuration chosen by the customer. This section describes some of the most likely
configurations.
Refer to the following subsections as appropriate for your installation:
●
Connecting the switch link on page 38
●
Connecting the serial port expander box on page 39
●
Connecting external SCSI devices on page 40
Procedures for connecting a network hub unit and an NTS are found in Avaya CMS
Terminals, Printers, and Modems, 585-215-874.
Connecting the switch link
There are two ways to connect the CMS computer to a switch:
●
using TCP/IP over a local area network (LAN), or
●
using X.25 protocol over a hard-wired or switched link
One CMS computer can collect data from up to eight different switches. To the CMS
computer, each switch represents one ACD. Depending on the release of the switch and
the release of the CMS software, you can have all switches connected using TCP/IP, all
switches connected using X.25 protocol, or some combination of the two protocols. For
detailed information about how to connect and administer the switch link, see Avaya CMS
Switch Connections, Administration, and Troubleshooting, 585-215-876.

Connecting external SCSI devices
This section describes how to connect the SCSI devices (tape drives and disk drives) to
the Ultra 5 computer. SCSI devices connect to either the SunSwift card or to the DualChannel UltraSCSI card.
SunSwift connections
The following figure shows how to connect UniPack SCSI disk drives and tape drives to a
SunSwift card. A 68-to-68-pin SCSI cable connects from the SunSwift PCI card on the
back of the computer to the IN connector on the back of the SCSI device that is closest to
the computer. If you have more than one SunSwift card, connect the drives to the card in
the lowest slot number. A 68-to-68 pin SCSI cable connects from the OUT connector of
that device to the IN connector of the next device. Continue this process until all assigned
devices are connected in the SCSI chain.

When connecting SCSI devices, the last device in the chain MUST be terminated, either
via an auto-terminated device or with a manual terminator.
When using an auto-terminated SCSI device, you do not need to connect a SCSI
terminator to the OUT connector of the last SCSI device in the chain. To verify that the last
device is auto-terminated, check the LEDs labeled Auto Term High and Auto Term Low on
the back panel of the device. In a CMS configuration, both LEDs are lit on the last device in
the SCSI chain. If a device in the SCSI chain is not the last device, neither termination LED
is lit.
When using a manually-terminated device, you must connect a SCSI terminator to the
OUT connector of the last SCSI device in the chain. When you connect the SCSI
terminator to the OUT connector, the LED on the terminator is lit.

terminator to the OUT connector of the last SCSI device in the chain. To verify that the last
device is auto-terminated, check the LEDs labeled Auto Term High and Auto Term Low on
the back panel of the device. In a CMS configuration, both LEDs are lit on the last device in
the SCSI chain. If a device in the SCSI chain is not the last device, neither termination LED
is lit.
When using a manually-terminated device, you must connect a SCSI terminator to the
OUT connector of the last SCSI device in the chain. When you connect the SCSI
terminator to the OUT connector, the LED on the terminator is lit.

SAI/P cards
The Serial Asynchronous Interface/PCI (SAI/P) card connects terminals, printers and
modems to the computer. The computer can accommodate two SAI/P cards. Each SAI/P
card is associated with an external, 8-port expander box.
Identifying device entry names for ports on an
SAI/P card
When the SAI/P card driver is installed, device entries are created to access the physical
ports on the expander box. The device name that is created is /dev/term/N, where N
represents SAI/P slot and expander box port entries. For example, when two SAI/P cards
are installed, the card in the lowest numbered slot is associated with physical ports
a000-a007, while ports for the second card are denoted by b000-b007.
To display the port designations for each SAI/P card, use the
/cms/toolsbin/display_ports command. The system displays a response similar to
the following:
/dev/term devices:a000 a001 a002 a003 a004 a005 a006 a007

SunSwift connections
The following figure shows how to connect UniPack SCSI disk drives and tape drives to a
SunSwift card. A 68-to-68-pin SCSI cable connects from the SunSwift PCI card on the
back of the computer to the IN connector on the back of the SCSI device that is closest to
the computer. If you have more than one SunSwift card, connect the drives to the card in
the lowest slot number. A 68-to-68 pin SCSI cable connects from the OUT connector of
that device to the IN connector of the next device. Continue this process until all assigned
devices are connected in the SCSI chain.

When connecting SCSI devices, the last device in the chain MUST be terminated, either
via an auto-terminated device or with a manual terminator.
When using an auto-terminated SCSI device, you do not need to connect a SCSI
terminator to the OUT connector of the last SCSI device in the chain. To verify that the last
device is auto-terminated, check the LEDs labeled Auto Term High and Auto Term Low on
the back panel of the device. In a CMS configuration, both LEDs are lit on the last device in
the SCSI chain. If a device in the SCSI chain is not the last device, neither termination LED
is lit.
When using a manually-terminated device, you must connect a SCSI terminator to the
OUT connector of the last SCSI device in the chain. When you connect the SCSI
terminator to the OUT connector, the LED on the terminator is lit.

Partitioning disk drives
Requirements for partitioning data disk drives differs for the releases of CMS.
R3V9 and later
If you are adding new disk drives to a system where CMS is operational, partitioning is
done automatically using CMS commands. Skip manual partitioning and continue with
Administering data disk drives on page 118.
If you are replacing a defective disk drive in a system and CMS is not operational, you
must manually partition the disk drive. Use the following information:
●
Disk partition values, R3V11 boot disks on page 109, R3V9 boot disks on page 109, or
R3V9 and later data disks on page 110
●
Partitioning and formatting a disk on page 114
R3V8 and earlier
For R3V8 and earlier systems, you must partition and format the new or replacement disk
drives. Use the following information:
●
Disk partition values, R3V8 and earlier data disks on page 112
●
Partitioning and formatting a disk on page 114
Disk partition values
During the disk partitioning procedure, you must enter the size of each partition. Since disk
models change often, see the software installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting
document for your current CMS release to verify the correct disk partitioning values.

Adding, removing, or replacing tape drives
This section describes how to add, remove, or replace an external tape drive on an existing
system.
Note:
External tape drives are pre-installed and required at all times. Adding a
second tape drive is usually only a temporary measure during the migration
process.
Adding or replacing a tape drive
When adding a newer model tape drive to a system, you may have to edit the
/kernel/drv/st.conf file to add information about the new tape drive. If editing the file
is required, you will receive a Design Change Letter (DCL) instructing you how to change
the file.
To add or replace a tape drive:
1. Log in to the system as root.
2. Enter the following commands:
cd /dev/rmt
pwd
The pwd command verifies that you are in the /dev/rmt directory.
3. Enter:
rm *
This removes SCSI tape drive device files. If you do not remove the tape drive device
files before rebooting the system, the SCSI tape drive device files may not match the
hardware configuration.
4. Enter:
/usr/sbin/shutdown -y -i0 -g0
This shuts down the system.
5. Turn off the system.
6. Turn off the system monitor.
7. Turn off all external SCSI devices starting with the device that is closest to the system
and working toward the farthest device.
8. If replacing a defective tape drive, disconnect the SCSI cables.
9. Connect the tape drive to the other SCSI devices. See SunSwift connections on

The following figure shows how to connect UniPack SCSI disk drives and tape drives to a
SunSwift card. A 68-to-68-pin SCSI cable connects from the SunSwift PCI card on the
back of the computer to the IN connector on the back of the SCSI device that is closest to
the computer. If you have more than one SunSwift card, connect the drives to the card in
the lowest slot number. A 68-to-68 pin SCSI cable connects from the OUT connector of
that device to the IN connector of the next device. Continue this process until all assigned
devices are connected in the SCSI chain.

When connecting SCSI devices, the last device in the chain MUST be terminated, either
via an auto-terminated device or with a manual terminator.
When using an auto-terminated SCSI device, you do not need to connect a SCSI
terminator to the OUT connector of the last SCSI device in the chain. To verify that the last
device is auto-terminated, check the LEDs labeled Auto Term High and Auto Term Low on
the back panel of the device. In a CMS configuration, both LEDs are lit on the last device in
the SCSI chain. If a device in the SCSI chain is not the last device, neither termination LED
is lit.
When using a manually-terminated device, you must connect a SCSI terminator to the
OUT connector of the last SCSI device in the chain. When you connect the SCSI
terminator to the OUT connector, the LED on the terminator is lit.

The following figure shows how to connect UniPack SCSI disk drives and tape drives to an
UltraSCSI card. A 68-to-68-pin VHDCI SCSI cable connects from the UltraSCSI PCI card
on the back of the computer to the IN connector on the back of the SCSI device that is
closest to the computer. A 68-to-68 pin SCSI cable connects from the OUT connector of
that device to the IN connector of the next device. Continue this process until all assigned
devices are connected in the SCSI chain.

When connecting SCSI devices, the last device in the chain MUST be terminated, either
via an auto-terminated device or with a manual terminator.
When using an auto-terminated SCSI device, you do not need to connect a SCSI
terminator to the OUT connector of the last SCSI device in the chain. To verify that the last
device is auto-terminated, check the LEDs labeled Auto Term High and Auto Term Low on
the back panel of the device. In a CMS configuration, both LEDs are lit on the last device in
the SCSI chain. If a device in the SCSI chain is not the last device, neither termination LED
is lit.
When using a manually-terminated device, you must connect a SCSI terminator to the
OUT connector of the last SCSI device in the chain. When you connect the SCSI
terminator to the OUT connector, the LED on the terminator is lit.

Using the remote console
Overview
If your system does not boot, or the system cannot be diagnosed locally, remote support
personnel might want to redirect control of the console port from the local console to a
dialed-in remote console. Redirecting the console allows support personnel to do remote
maintenance as if they were at the local console. You can redirect the console using either:
●
The Solaris operating system
●
OpenBoot diagnostics
This section consists of the following procedures:
●
Redirecting the console using Solaris on page 152. Use this procedure when the
system will boot up to the Solaris operating system.
●
Redirecting the console using OpenBoot mode on page 155. Use this procedure when
the system will not boot up to the Solaris operating system.
Redirecting the console using Solaris
This procedure describes how to use the Solaris operating system to redirect the local
console to serial port B. This procedure is usually done from the remote console that has
dialed in to the system. Should you encounter any problems setting up the remote console,
see Remote console port problems on page 187.
! CAUTION:
Use this procedure only when absolutely necessary. If the console redirects
and the modem line drops, you may not be able to get back into the system.

System messages
System messages can alert you to system problems, such as a device that is about to fail.
By default, many of the messages are displayed on the system console and are stored in
/var/adm.
You can display system messages with the dmesg command. Here are some factors to
keep in mind:
●
The system displays a list of the most recent messages.
●
The /var/adm directory contains several message files. The most recent messages
are in /var/adm/messages and in /var/adm/messages.0. The oldest are in
/var/adm/messages.3.
●
Periodically, a new file is created, and the /var/adm/messages.3 file is deleted,
/var/adm/messages.2 is renamed /var/adm/messages.3,
/var/adm/messages.1 is renamed /var/adm/messages.2, and
/var/adm/messages.0 is renamed /var/adm/messages.1.
The message files may contain not only system messages, but also core dumps and other
data, which can cause /var/adm to grow quite large. To keep the directory to a
reasonable size and ensure that future core dumps can be saved, you should remove
unneeded files periodically. You can automate the task by using crontab. See your Sun
system documentation for information on crontab.

To use the Power On Self Test (POST) messages (during a reboot) to diagnose remote
hardware problems:
1. At the ok prompt, enter:
boot
2. Scan the displayed messages on the screen. Watch for error messages.
You can identify problems more accurately if you are familiar with the system power-on
initialization messages. These messages show you the types of functions the system
performs at various stages of system start-up. These messages can also show the transfer
of control from OpenBoot firmware to POST.
Memory failure
The operating system, diagnostic program, or POST may not display a DIMM location (U

DDS4 tape drive
The tape drive LEDs show the following status:
●
Tape LED (green) — The LED flashes to show activity (loading, unloading, reading, and
writing). The LED is steady when a cartridge is loaded and the tape drive is ready to
begin operation.
●
Clean LED (amber) — The LED flashes to indicate that a cartridge is near the end of its

useful life, or the tape heads may need cleaning.
●
If the media caution signal displays (flashing amber), clean the tape drive.
●
If the signal still displays after cleaning the heads, repeat the operation with a different
tape. If this clears the signal, the first tape is nearing the end of its life. Copy the data
onto a new tape and discard the old one.
The media caution signal is cleared when a new tape is loaded or when the drive is powercycled.

●
Connection test. Minimal access of device to verify its accessibility and availability.
●
Functional test (default). Detailed tests to thoroughly test the device or system when
offline the system is offline (CMS must be turned off). A stress mode in the system or
test option can be set only within the offline mode. The stress mode is an extension of
offline.
●
Functional test (from system monitor). Safe tests that can be executed on the device or
system when it is online (CMS can be on, but testing is safer when it is turned off).
There are two ways to run SunVTS. We recommend that you use either local access
through the Common Desktop Environment (CDE) interface, or remote access using an
ASCII interface.
Prerequisites
CMS must be turned off.
Procedure
To use SunVTS:
1. Enter:

Troubleshooting tape drives
Overview
Use the following procedures to troubleshoot tape drives:
●
Checking tape status
●
Rebuilding tape device drivers on page 183
Checking tape status
For many procedures, you must identify what tape drive, by device path, you will use for
the procedure. Tape drives are assigned to particular device paths, usually one of the
following:
●
/dev/rmt/0
●
/dev/rmt/0c
●
/dev/rmt/1
●
/dev/rmt/1c
Note:
The “c” at the end of the device name indicates that the tape device can
operate in compressed mode. We recommend that you use compressed
mode at all times.
Issue 3.2 April 2002
181
Troubleshooting
To determine what device paths are available on your system:
1. Insert a tape into the tape drive.
2. Enter the following commands:
mt -f /dev/rmt/0 status
mt -f /dev/rmt/1 status
If the device path is correct, the system displays a message that is similar to the
following:
Vendor ‘HP
‘ Product ‘C5683A
sense key(0x6)= Unit Attention
file no= 0
block no= 0
‘ tape drive:
residual= 0
retries= 0
If the device path is incorrect, the system displays a message that is similar to the
following:
/dev/rmt/1c: No such file or directory
If there is no tape in the tape drive, the system displays a message that is similar to the
following:
/dev/rmt/1c: No tape loaded or drive offline

Troubleshooting tape drives
Rebuilding tape device drivers
As tape drives are added to and removed from a system, the device drivers can get out of
sequence with the number of tape drives. For example, if a system has two tape drives,
and one is removed, the system may accidentally try to use a tape drive that no longer
exists.
To rebuild the device drivers for the tape drives:
1. Log in to the system as root.
2. Make sure that the target addresses for any SCSI tape drives are set correctly.
Typically, the first tape drive is SCSI address 4, and the second tape drive is SCSI
address 5. If you change the SCSI address, you must power-cycle the tape drive.
3. Enter the following commands:
cd /dev/rmt
pwd
The pwd command verifies that you are in the /dev/rmt directory.
4. Enter the following commands:

Recovery procedures
This section contains procedures to follow when certain conditions or errors occur.
Preserving data after a system failure
Enter the sync command at the ok prompt to force any information on its way to the hard
disk to be written out immediately. This is useful if the operating system fails or is
interrupted before preserving all data.
The sync command returns control to the operating system and performs the data-saving
operations. After the disk data is synchronized, the operating system begins to save a core
image of itself. If you do not need this core dump, you can interrupt the operation by
pressing Stop plus A.
Loss of power
If the system loses power, it is recommended (but not required) that you empty the CDROM or DVD-ROM and tape drives. The system boots from the disk by default.
Power-on sequence
To turn the power back on:
1. Turn on all external SCSI devices starting with the device that is farthest from the
system and working toward the system.
2. Turn on the system monitor.
3. Turn on the system.
If the system is operating properly, the system displays a banner screen up to 3
minutes after it is powered on.
