Shipping problems?
If the shipping materials are damaged or the contents of the container are incomplete:
•
•
•
Contact the nearest Agilent Technologies office.
Keep the shipping materials for the carrier’s inspection.
If you must return an test set to Agilent Technologies, use the original (or
comparable) shipping materials. See “Returning a test set for Service" on page 111.
Test Set Location and Rack Mounting Requirements
Locating the test set
Make sure that the fan inlet and exhaust vent areas on the sides of the test set are not
obstructed. The minimal required clearance is 2 inches. Airflow restrictions cause
additional airflow noise and cause the fans to speed up so they can draw in enough air for
the required cooling resulting in excessive audible noise.
Cooling and rack mounting
Do not rack mount the test set side-by-side with any other instrument with side-by-side
ventilation. Make sure the exhaust air from the first instrument is directed away from the
inlet of the second unit. If the pre-heated air from the first instrument is directed into the
second instrument, it can cause excessive operating temperatures in the second unit and
can cause instrument failures. The test set draws air in from the left side and exhausts air
from the right side.

Anti-Virus Software and Firewalls
No anti-virus software is shipped with the test set. It is recommended that you install
anti-virus software if your test set is connected to the LAN. Check with your IT
department to see what they recommend.
The test set is shipped with the Windows XP firewall enabled. Do not modify the default
network settings as this may cause problems with the operating system of the test set.
Shortening the Test Set Power-On Time
The test set desktop includes a shortcut to the ConfigureApplications.exe application that
lets you control your test set power-on configuration. You can set the configuration to
pre-load only the applications that you typically run. This can significantly shorten the
time it takes for your test set to power-on. You can also access this functionality by
pressing: System, Power On, Configure Applications.
If (after power-on) you want to access an application that you did not pre-load, it will
take a little longer to bring it up once you press the application softkey. This longer
time-frame is only for the first access after power-on. After the initial access, mode
(application) switching will operate as quickly as if the application was pre-loaded.

Quick-Start
Protecting against electrostatic discharge
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage or destroy electronic components (the
possibility of unseen damage caused by ESD is present whenever components are
transported, stored, or used).
Test equipment and ESD
To help reduce ESD damage that can occur while using test equipment:
Do not use these first three techniques when working on circuitry with
a voltage potential greater than 500 volts.
•
Before connecting any coaxial cable to a test set connector for the first time each day,
momentarily short the center and outer conductors of the cable together.
•
Personnel should be grounded with a 1 MΩ resistor-isolated wrist-strap before
touching the center pin of any connector and before removing any assembly from the
test set.
•
Be sure that all instruments are properly earth-grounded to prevent build-up of static
charge.
•
Perform work on all components or assemblies at a static-safe workstation.
•
Keep static-generating materials at least one meter away from all components.
•
Store or transport components in static-shielding containers.
•
Always handle printed circuit board assemblies by the edges. This reduces the
possibility of ESD damage to components and prevent contamination of exposed
plating.
Additional information about ESD
For more information about ESD and how to prevent ESD damage, contact the
Electrostatic Discharge Association (http://www.esda.org). The ESD standards
developed by this agency are sanctioned by the American National Standards Institute
(ANSI).

Test Set Operating System
This chapter describes the Microsoft Windows XP configuration and the settings used
with the Agilent test set software. It includes information about changing some of the
system settings. And it describes the Windows operating system configuration and the
software installations that are present on the hard disk drive when the test set leaves the
factory.
The front panel of the test set has been designed with the keys needed to navigate
windows for: accessing menus, traversing in dialogs, selecting items, and depressing
displayed buttons. It is possible to use the front panel for changing Windows XP
configuration items, but it is much easier to perform these tasks with a USB mouse and
external keyboard. For specifics on navigating using the front panel, see “Navigating
Windows Without a Mouse" on page 72.

Customer Installation of Software
3rd party software verified by Agilent
Agilent has verified that the following programs are compatible with the test set
applications:
•
Symantec AntiVirus™ Corporate Edition version 10
•
MathWorks MATLAB
Installation of other 3rd party software
The X-Series platform is an open Windows environment, so you can install
non-approved software on the test set. However, installation of non-approved software
may affect test set performance. Agilent does not warrant the performance of the test set
with non-approved software installed.
Before installing any additional programs on the test set, you should exit
the test set application.
Also, you must not remove any applications or programs that are installed
on the test set when it is shipped from the factory.
If you install programs other than those that Agilent has tested, it could cause problems
with the test set's applications. If this happens, you should try uninstalling the program
that has caused the problem, or try changing the program's configuration. If this does not
correct the problem, you may have to use the Agilent Recovery system to reinstall the
test set's system software.

Customer creation of accounts
You can create additional user accounts and decide on the level of security granted to any
new user accounts created. For example, the level of security can be assigned as
administrator, power user, user, backup operators. User names are not case sensitive but
passwords are case sensitive.
For the test set software to operate, the user account executing the software
must be assigned Administrator or Power User privileges. Otherwise, the
test set software will not operate correctly.
It is Agilent’s expectation that each user’s My Documents folder is mapped to the D:
drive. This is to avoid overwriting the user’s data in the event the Agilent Recovery must
be performed. Also, this facilitates convenient backup by copying the contents of the D:
drive to external media. All users accounts created by the factory already have My
Documents mapped to the D: drive. Please map all new users My Documents folders to
the D: drive.

Test Set Operating System
Agilent X-Series Licensing Options
The Agilent X-Series test sets use three licensing types: Fixed Perpetual, Transportable
Perpetual, and Trial. These licensing types are available on all existing measurement
applications except the Sequence Analyzer Measurement Application (U9065A), which
requires a fixed perpetual license. Fixed Perpetual licenses are also required to enable
hardware options.
Fixed Perpetual
Fixed Perpetual licenses are the traditional license type (Fixed) with the same duration
(Perpetual) that have been available for all features since the X-Series introductions.
Fixed Perpetual licenses are identified by the “F” in the second character and “P” in the
third character of the option designator:
Example: U9080A-1FP
A license key is instrument model and serial number dependent. You can only install the
license key on the specific instrument for which it was created.
Transportable Perpetual
Transportable Perpetual licenses are an optional license type offering deployment
duration which is not fixed to a specific instrument model and serial number.
Transportable Perpetual licenses are identified in the product structure by a “T” in the
second character and “P” in the third character of the option designator:
Example: U9080A-1TP
Transportable Perpetual licenses require a connection to the Agilent server only for
managing the check-in/out of the license. The Agilent licensing server also provides for
storage of unused licenses which have been transported off instruments but are awaiting
assignment to new instruments. The server will limit the number of transports per 30 day
period per application license to 10.
Unlike Fixed Perpetual licenses which are pre-installed at the factory with new
instrument purchases, Transportable Perpetual licenses require redemption and
installation of the license before the first use. This allows the user to determine on which
instrument to initially install the application license.
Agilent recommends that instruments be at the same instrument software release to
ensure the latest code is available on each instrument so that the user experience is
identical between instruments. This is particularly important when transporting the
license for a newly-released application which may only be available in the latest latest
software release.

Getting Started Guide
Test Set Operating System

Time-Based Licenses
Time-based licenses are fixed licenses (that is, not transportable from one instrument to
another) that are limited in duration. Time-based licenses are identified by the “F” in the
second character and a numeral (indicating duration in months) in the third character of
the option designator:
Example: U9080A-1F3
A license key is instrument model and serial number dependent. You can only install the
license key on the specific instrument for which it was created.
Trial licenses
Trial licenses are available so that you may try applications before you buy the full
applications. These licenses are time limited for a 14 day period, and are restricted to one
trial for an individual application per instrument. The restriction is enforced through the
license redemption process of the Agilent Software Licensing (ASL) system.
Trial licenses are only available for measurement applications and not available for
enabling hardware capability.
Trial licenses are not installed in the factory and no entitlement certificates are created
for distribution with new instrument shipments. Trial licenses are not available for order,
but are available from the Agilent Web site after completing a brief registration:
http://www.agilent.com/find/xseries_trial
Trial Licenses are identified by the license designator “-TRL”.
Example: N9071A-TRL
If a product has multiple tiers (levels of functionality), the –TRL license enables all tiers
for the duration of the license. If you have a base tier and want a trial license for a higher
tier, you can install the –TRL license. When the duration expires the entitlement is
reverted back to the base tier.

Licensing New Measurement Application Software - After Initial
Purchase
Additional measurement application software can be ordered after your initial purchase
of the E6607A test set. Software upgrades are provided in a kit that includes an option
based Entitlement Certificate, a license agreement, and a USB storage device. The
licenses are downloaded from the license Web site onto the storage device so they can be
loaded into the instrument.
If you do not want to wait for your upgrade kit to arrive, licenses can be installed using
any available USB storage device. If you choose to do this, we recommend that the latest
version of the instrument software be installed. This ensures that the measurement
application being licensed and activated is installed and is the most current version.
The latest revision of the software may be downloaded from:
http://www.agilent.com/find/ext
A license key is usually for one instrument model and serial number combination. The
license key will only install itself on that instrument.
No calibration is required after a test set application installation.

Transporting a License Between X-Series Test Sets
Transportable licenses can be identified by the letters "TP" in their option designator. For
example, U9063A-2TP indicates the license is transportable and perpetual. To transport
this license from one X-Series test set to another, Agilent recommends that both test sets
be at the same instrument software release. This ensures that the user experience is
identical between instruments.
As a minimum, the instrument software release in the test set that will receive the
transportable license (the "target instrument") must at least be able to support the desired
application.
The X-Series signal test sets support several ways of transporting licenses. The
procedure below will focus on the most common procedure, where neither of the test
sets has access to an internet connection. For this procedure to work, a PC with an
internet connection is required
You will need the following:
•
USB flash drive
•
USB keyboard
•
USB mouse
We will refer to the test set from which the transportable license will be removed as the
"source instrument". We will refer to the test set which will receive the transportable
license as the "target instrument".
Procedure for Transporting a License, Neither Test Set Connected to the
Internet

It will be necessary to use one or more of
the rear panel ports to connect the USB
devices.
Ideally, the revisions will be the same.
But at least, both versions should be able
to support the application whose license
is being transported.
This information will be needed to issue
the license for the target instrument. The
Host ID is the model number, followed

Configuring Printers
Printers are configured using the Microsoft Windows Control Panel. It is easily accessed
from the Windows Start menu or from under the front panel System key. This setup
process is most easily done using a USB mouse and an external keyboard. If you do not
have a mouse it can be done using front-panel keys. See “Navigating Windows Without
a Mouse" on page 72.
When setting up a new printer, you may need to load the printer driver (unless you are
using a network printer that your IT department has set up to include the driver). The
manufacturer of the printer supplies the driver software and process. That may require
that you attach an external USB disk drive. An alternative is to connect the test set to the
LAN and download the driver from the printer manufacturer’s internet site.

Test Set Operating System
System Maintenance
Backup
It is recommended that you have a regular backup strategy. Your IT department may
already have a backup strategy in place which is suitable for the test set and its data.
Using the Agilent Recovery system in conjunction with a regular backup strategy should
allow full recovery of the test set data.
Windows XP has a Backup utility that you can use to archive files and folders in case of
a hard disk drive failure. See the Microsoft Windows XP Help and Support Center for
more information on this utility. You can also use third party backup utilities. However,
you must ensure that this third party software is compatible with the test set's system
software. See “Customer Installation of Software" on page 41 for more information.
When performing backups, we recommend that you backup the data to an external
storage device connected to the network or one of the test set's USB connectors. Also,
you should perform backups at times when the test set is not being used for normal
operations as it may impact the test set's overall performance.
System restore
Windows XP contains the capability to restore the system to a previous point in time.
System Restore is enabled with default settings as provided by Microsoft. However,
System Restore is not 100% successful. Therefore, it is not the recommended method to
backup the test set. System Restore has not been tested to verify successful restoring.
Disk defragmenting
Over time the hard disk on the test set becomes fragmented. Windows XP has a Disk
Defragmenter utility that you can use to defragment the hard disk. See the Microsoft
Windows XP Help and Support Center for more information on this utility.
Running Disk Defragmenter should be performed when the measurement
application is not running. Measurement throughput is significantly
impacted while disk defragmentation is in process.

Test Set Operating System
USB Connections
All of the USB ports are compatible with the USB 2.0 and 1.1 specification. The two
USB ports on the front panel (see graphic below) and four of the USB ports on the rear
panel are USB Series “A” ports. These are ports to which you can connect USB mass
storage devices and printers. The test set USB Host support includes the standard
Microsoft Windows XP USB class drivers for human interface, mass storage, printing,
scanning, and imaging devices. A complete up-to-date list of the Windows XP USB
class driver support is available on the Microsoft website.
http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/system/bus/usb/USBFAQ_intro.mspx
The square USB port (see graphic below) on the rear panel is a USB Series “B” port and
is used for controlling the test set over USB. Information to help you program your test
set is documented in the N9060A User's Guide. The test set USB device driver included
in the test set software supports the test and measurement industry standard
USBTMC-USB488 device class.
In addition, the Agilent IO Libraries CD that was included with your test set contains
USB Host drivers that allow control of other test sets connected to the USB bus.
Agilent Technologies does not support or warrant correct test set operation if additional
USB drivers from third parties are installed in the test set. It is possible that additional
drivers could break the normal USB operation. If USB operation is broken, recovery
would require reinstalling the test set application using the hard drive recovery process.

Test Set Operating System
Hard Drive Partitioning and Use
The drive is partitioned into 3 sections: C:, D: and E:
62
•
The C: partition contains the Windows XP operating system and software installed
by Agilent. This is an Open System which means you can install additional software,
and these should be installed on the C: drive. However, only a limited set of software
applications are tested for use with the Agilent measurement software. The
installation and/or use of other software is not warranted, and could interfere with the
operation of the measurement software. If test set repair is ever needed, the Agilent
version of the C: drive is the only part of the test set software that is restored by the
Agilent Recovery process. You must reload any other software that you have added
in the test set.
•
The D: partition is reserved for data storage. The User Accounts that are configured
by Agilent have their My Documents folder mapped to the D: drive. This is for the
convenience of backing-up the measurement data. You should always back-up the
data on the D: drive to an external device. This allows you to restore the data if you
ever need to replace the hard drive.
•
The E: partition is reserved for Agilent’s use. The primary use of the E: drive is for
housing the Calibration and Alignment data. Do not change or overwrite the files on
this drive. This could cause your test set to not meet specifications, or even to stop
functioning correctly. Do not use this drive for data storage. It is also recommended
that you back up the contents of this drive by using the factory calibration data
backup utility.

Test Set Operating System
Hard Drive Recovery Process
The Agilent Recovery System can be used to repair errors on the test set's C: drive
partition, or to restore the original factory configuration of the system software. The
Agilent Recovery System is stored in a separate hidden hard disk drive partition.
Repairing errors on the hard disk drive may result in loss of data or files. If you need
more information about the Windows “chkdsk” error repair process, see the chkdsk
documentation in the Microsoft Windows XP Help and Support Center.
Restoring the original factory system software does not restore any of the following
items:
•
Windows system configurations that were made after the test set was shipped from
the factory. For example, Windows and Service Pack updates, user accounts, and
windows configuration settings. After an Agilent Recovery, these configurations
need to be redone.
•
Additional software that was installed after the test set was shipped from the factory.
After an Agilent Recovery, that software needs to be re-installed.
•
Any data or programs saved on the D: or E: drives.
•
Any upgrades that were made to the Agilent measurement application software.
Restoring the original factory system software will not synchronize the code in the Field
Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) on the various hardware assemblies. As a result,
you may see an error dialog box appear during the final boot-up at the end of the
recovery process. This typically occurs when there are significant differences between
the software version installed prior to performing the recovery and the version restored
by the recovery. In these situations, upgrade the software to the latest version.
It is recommended that you use a regular back up strategy. Your IT
department may already have a back up strategy in place which is suitable
for the test set and its data. See “System Maintenance" on page 60. Using
the Agilent Recovery System in conjunction with a regular back up
strategy should allow you to fully recover the test set software and data.
It is recommended that routine backups of the test set information be performed to keep
current archives of the test set information. This allows a full recovery of the test set
information after the test set recovery system operations are performed. See
“Backup" on page 60 for more details.

Remote Desktop: Using the X-Series test set remotely
Windows Remote Desktop is recommended for remote control of the test set. It offers
fully-interactive control, that is almost identical to direct face-to-face control of the test
set. You can also remotely control the test set using the Embedded Web Server interface.
The Embedded Web Server functionality provides a communications method that does
not require login to the test set. However, due to its slower response time, it is only
recommended for setup and data exchanges that do not involve test set control.
The Remote Desktop functionality is a Microsoft Windows XP capability.
The following discussion provides some guidelines for using this
capability with the test set. You need to refer to the Windows XP help
documentation for more information. As Windows evolves, these
instructions may no longer be exact.
You need an external keyboard and mouse to fully use this functionality.
Overview of Remote Desktop operation
Using the Remote Desktop functionality of the test set allows you to control and interact
with the test set from a remote computer, as though you were sitting in front of the test
set.
When you have configured the test set for remote connectivity, and configured a separate
computer to act as a Remote Desktop Host, you can send commands to the test set from
the remote computer, and you can see the test set display on the screen of the remote
computer.
This section provides full details of how to set up the test set for remote connectivity, and
also how to set up a computer running any 32-bit version of Microsoft Windows as a
Remote Desktop Host.

Embedded Web Server: Using the X-Series Test Set Remotely
The test set can be controlled using either the Embedded Web Server or Windows
Remote Desktop. The Embedded Web Server is a good solution when you do not want to
log into the user account on the test set. This allows you to view the display or control
the test set, without logging the current user off. Windows Remote Desktop must be used
when the remote computer keyboard is needed as an input device (such as for editing
filenames, or setting the title.) Also, Windows Remote Desktop generally has a faster
response time.
Accessing the test set through the Internet
It is possible to access and control the test set through the Internet and World Wide Web,
or a local internet, using the built-in Embedded Server functionality. This section
provides details of how to use this functionality.
The test set may also be accessed and controlled using the Windows Remote Desktop
functionality (see the section “Remote Desktop: Using the X-Series test set remotely" on
page 76, for details).
The test set Embedded Server capabilities are fully compliant with the LXI (LAN
eXtensions for Instrumentation) standard.
To gain access to the test set from the LAN, you need to know its
hostname (or IP Address). For details of how to locate this information
using the test set display, see “How to locate the computer name of the
test set" on page 78.
Accessing the test set
Step
1 Enter a URL corresponding to the
test set hostname or IP Address.

Windows startup folder
All Windows XP systems include a special folder, called the Startup folder. If a program,
or a shortcut to a program, is placed in the Startup folder (either by Windows itself, or by
a third-party application, or by any user), that program automatically runs every time
Windows is restarted.
When your test set is first configured by Agilent, shortcuts to the appropriate application
software and supporting programs are placed in the Startup folder. The exact contents of
the Startup folder depends on the options you purchased with your test set.
Important
You should never delete items that appear in the Startup folder, or move
any item from the Startup folder to another folder. Deleting or moving any
item in the Startup folder may cause applications not to start automatically
when Windows is restarted, or may cause certain options to be
unavailable when using the test set.
If you wish to view the contents of the Startup folder, do one of the following:
•
Either click Start, All Programs, then select Startup,
or,
•
Click Start, My Computer, then navigate to the folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.
Additional startup items may also appear in the corresponding startup folder for the user
that is currently logged on. For example, the startup folder for the administrator user is
C:\Documents and Settings\administrator\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

Troubleshooting
Check the Basics
o Is there power at the receptacle?
o Is the test set turned on? Check to see if the green LED beside the power switch is on.
Also, listen for internal fan noise to determine if the test set cooling fans are running.
o If other equipment, cables, and connectors are being used with your test set, make
sure they are connected properly and operating correctly.
o If the analyzer cannot completely load or run the operating system, or the instrument
application is not successfully launched, the problem could be a corrupt hard drive. If
the analyzer gets far enough along in the boot process to run the "Agilent Recovery
System", perform the “Hard Drive Recovery Process” on page 65.
o Is the Measurement Application running? If not, there is a software launch
shortcut/icon on the desktop.
o Does the test set application have the focus? (That is, is the blue window banner
highlighted?) If not, move focus to the application with Alt-Tab.
o Review the measurement procedures being performed when the problem first
appeared. Are all of the settings correct?
o If the test set is not functioning as expected, return the test set to a known state by
pressing Mode Preset.
Some test set settings are not affected by a Preset. If you wish to reset the
test set settings, press System, Power On, Restore Power On Defaults.
o Is the measurement being performed, and the results that are expected, within the
specifications and capabilities of the test set? Refer to the specifications guide for
your test set. Technical manual pdf files are available in the test set (C:\Program
Files\Agilent\SignalAnalysis\Infrastructure\Help\files), on the documentations cd
provided with the test set, and on the Agilent website:
http://www.agilent.com/find/e6607a
o If the test set is not communicating via the LAN connection, check for the presence
of blinking yellow LEDs on the rear panel LAN connector. If the ACT LED is not
blinking, check the LAN cable and LAN integrity.
o To meet specifications, the test set must be aligned. Either the Auto Align (On)
feature must be selected (press System, Alignments, Auto Align, Normal), or the
test set must be manually aligned.
o Perform an Alignment. Press System, Alignments, Align Now, All.
108
Getting Started Guide
5
Troubleshooting
o If the previously performed alignments did not resolve the problem, press System,
Alignments, Restore Align Defaults. Then press System, Alignments, Align Now,
All.
o Is the test set displaying an error message? If so, refer to the Instrument Messages
Guide.
o Check if the external frequency reference is selected but not available. Verify that it is
selected by pressing Input/Output, Freq Ref In. If External is selected, changing the
setting to Sense allows the test set to sense the presence of an external reference and
use it only if it is available. The frequency of the reference should be set correctly.
o If you are using a Windows program, other than the test set application, you may
notice it running slow. Place the test set application in single sweep/measurement.

Packaging the Test Set
Use original packaging or comparable. It is best to pack the unit in the original factory
packaging materials if they are available.
Test set damage can result from using packaging materials other than those
specified. Never use styrene pellets in any shape as packaging materials.
They do not adequately cushion the test set or prevent it from shifting in
the carton. They cause test set damage by generating static electricity and
by lodging in the test set louvers, blocking airflow.
You can repackage the test set with commercially available materials, as follows:
Step
Notes
1 Attach a completed service tag to
the test set
2 Wrap the test set in antistatic plastic
to reduce the possibility of damage
caused by electrostatic discharge
3 Use a strong shipping container.
The carton must be both large enough and strong
enough to accommodate the test set. A double-walled,
corrugated cardboard carton with 159 kg (350 lb)
bursting strength is adequate. Allow at least 3 to 4
inches on all sides of the test set for packing material.
4 Surround the equipment with three
to four inches of packing material
and prevent the equipment from
moving in the carton.
If packing foam is not available, the best alternative is
plastic bubble-pak. This material looks like a plastic
sheet filled with 1-1/4 inch air bubbles. Use the
pink-colored bubble which reduces static electricity.
Wrapping the equipment several times in this material
should both protect the equipment and prevent it from
moving in the carton.
5 Seal the shipping container securely
with strong nylon adhesive tape.
6 Mark the shipping container
“FRAGILE, HANDLE WITH
CARE” to assure careful handling.
7 Retain copies of all shipping
papers.
