Installing Logic Analyzer Modules
You should install logic analyzer modules into your logic
analysis system before you install software.
To capture 4x traffic in both directions, using the full sample
memory available in the logic analyzer, you need 4 cards. These
cards should be connected together in pairs. Each pair of cards
forms a logic analyzer “machine,” with a master card and an
expander card. Both cards in a machine must be of the same
type, but the cards in the two machines may be different.

2 Connecting the Analysis Probe
Connecting the Analysis Probe to a 1x InfiniBand Link
This section describes:
• Inserting the analysis probe into a 1x InfiniBand link.
• Connecting the logic analyzer to the analysis probe.
When the analysis probe is powered up, it goes into Pod ID
mode, the 4x InfiniBand ports are active, and the 1x ports are
inactive. Therefore, 1x traffic will not pass through the analysis
probe until you set it for a 1x mode. (See “Setting Preferences”
on page 33.)
To insert the analysis probe in a 1x InfiniBand link
1 If necessary, install SFP (Small Form Factor Pluggable)
transcievers for 1X PORT 1 and 1X PORT 2.
The analysis probe comes with two copper SFP transcievers.
To probe an optical link, you must provide the optical SFP
transcievers.
2 Connect the analysis probe between two 1x InfiniBand
devices, where Port 1 connects to one device and Port 2
connects to the other device.

5 Troubleshooting and Repair
Verifying Analysis Probe Performance
If you suspect the analysis probe is not working properly, you
can run its performance verification tests.
The analysis probe’s performance verification tests are run
from its built-in command interface, which you can access via:
• The analysis probe’s serial RS-232 interface and a terminal
or computer running terminal emulation software.
The analysis probe has a 9600 baud RS-232 serial interface
with an RJ12 connector.
• The analysis probe’s LAN interface and the telnet command
on a networked computer.
The analysis probe has an IEEE 802.3 Type 10/100Base-TX
LAN connector and is compatible with both 10 Mbps
(10BASE-T) and 100 Mbps (100BASE-TX) twisted-pair
ethernet LANs. (The analysis probe automatically negotiates
the data rate for the LAN it is connected to.)
Accessing Built-In Commands via the Serial Port
Before you can access the analysis probe’s built-in commands
via the serial port, the analysis probe must be connected to a
terminal or computer running terminal emulation software.
You need a serial cable (with RJ-12 connectors on both ends,
with 6-wire straight-through connections) and an adapter
(female RJ-12 to female 9-pin D subminiature). The adapter
plugs into 9-pin serial ports found on most PCs.
Serial connections on a workstation
If you are using a UNIX® workstation as the host computer, you
need to use a serial device file. If a serial device file does not
already exist on your host, you need to create one. Once it
exists, you need to ensure that it has the appropriate
permissions so that you can access it. See the system
documentation for your workstation for help with setting up a
serial device.
42
N4217A Installation Guide
5 Troubleshooting and Repair
Serial connections on a personal computer
Serial connections are supported on personal computers. (You
must use hardware handshaking.)
If you are using a personal computer as the host computer, you
do not need to set up any special files.
1 Connect the serial cable from the host computer to the
analysis probe.
Use the DB9-to-RJ12 adapter and the serial cable supplied
with the analysis probe.
2 Start a terminal emulator program on the host computer.
If you are using a personal computer, the HyperTerminal
application in Microsoft Windows® will work fine.
If you are using a UNIX workstation, you can use a terminal
emulator such as cu or kermit.
3 Configure the terminal emulator program for:
• Communication rate: 9600 baud
• Data bits: 8
• Parity: none
• Stop bits: 2
• Flow control: None
4 Turn on power to the analysis probe.
When the analysis probe powers up, it sends a version
message to the serial port, followed by a prompt.
5 Press the Return or Enter key a few times.
You should see a prompt such as "T>".
If you don’t see a prompt, refer to “If there are serial port
connection problems”.
For information about the commands you can use, enter “?” or
“help” at the prompt.
N4217A Installation Guide
43
5 Troubleshooting and Repair
If there are serial port connection problems
If the analysis probe prompt does not appear in the terminal
emulator window (or terminal display) after pressing the
Return or Enter key:
✔ Make sure that you have connected the analysis probe to the
proper power source and that the power switch is on.
With certain serial (RS-232) port interface cards, connecting
to a serial port when the analysis probe is turned off (or is
not connected) will hang the personal computer. The only
way to get control back is to reboot the computer. Therefore,
we recommend that you always turn on the analysis probe
before attempting to connect via a serial port.
✔ Make sure the serial cable is connected to the correct serial
port on your computer (or terminal).
✔ Make sure you are using the serial cable and adapter which
are supplied with the analysis probe.
✔ Make sure the sure you have properly configured the
terminal emulator (or terminal) data communications
settings:
• Communication rate: 9600 baud
• Data bits: 8
• Parity: none
• Stop bits: 1
• Flow control: Hardware
Accessing Built-In Commands via the LAN Port
Before you can access the analysis probe’s built-in commands
via LAN, the analysis probe must be connected to the LAN and
set up with the proper LAN parameters. The analysis probe’s
LAN parameters can be configured) in two ways:
• By using a computer with terminal emulation software (or by
using an actual terminal) connected to the analysis probe’s
serial (RS-232) port, and by entering commands to set the
LAN parameters.
44
N4217A Installation Guide
5 Troubleshooting and Repair
• By a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server
that responds to BOOTP requests.
What is DHCP?
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) allows clients
(like the analysis probe) to obtain LAN parameters
automatically from a server.
How does the analysis probe use DHCP?
The analysis probe uses “static allocation” (sometimes called
“manual allocation”) to obtain a permanent IP address. Every
time the analysis probe is turned on, it sends out a BOOTP
request packet. If the DHCP server on the network responds to
BOOTP requests and has been configured to reply to the
analysis probe’s link-level address, it will respond with the
IP address and other LAN parameters.
The analysis probe does not support “automatic allocation”,
which permanently allocates IP addresses from a pool of
addresses.
Nor does the analysis probe support “dynamic allocation” of IP
addresses—it does not track lease duration and request a new IP
address when the lease is about to expire.
How does DHCP interact with other methods of setting LAN
parameters?
Every time the analysis probe is turned ON, it sends out a
BOOTP request packet (even if the LAN parameters have
already been configured). As long as the DHCP server is
configured to reply to BOOTP requests from the analysis
probe’s link-level address, it will respond with the IP address
and other LAN parameters.
N4217A Installation Guide
45
5 Troubleshooting and Repair
To set LAN parameters using the serial port
1 Access the built-in command interface via the serial port (see
“Accessing Built-In Commands via the Serial Port" on
page 42).
2 Find out whether port numbers 6470 and 6471 are already in
use on your network and if that use constitutes a conflict.
Computers on the network (running debugger software)
communicate with the analysis probe through two TCP
service ports. The default base port number is 6470. The
second port has the next higher number (default 6471).
In almost all cases, the default numbers (6470, 6471) can be
used without change. If necessary, the base port number LAN
parameter can be changed (using a serial port connection) if
the port numbers conflict with some other product on your
network.
3 Display the current LAN parameter settings by entering the
lan command:
R>lan
lan is enabled
Link Status is UP
100BaseTX
lan -i 15.5.24.116
lan -g 15.5.23.1
lan -s 255.255.248.0
lan -p 6470
Ethernet Address : 08000909BAC1
R>
The Ethernet address, also known as the link level address, is
preassigned at the factory, and is printed on a label on the
analysis probe.
4 Change the LAN parameters by entering lan commands
using the following syntax:
lan -i <internet> [-g <gateway>] [-p <port>] [-s <subnet>]
The lan command parameters are:
46
N4217A Installation Guide
5 Troubleshooting and Repair
Table 4
Example
lan command parameters
Parameter
Meaning
-i <internet>
The IP address which you obtained from your network
administrator.
-g <gateway>
The gateway address. Setting the gateway address
allows access outside your local network or subnet.
-s <subnet>
This changes the subnet mask.
-p <port>
This changes the base TCP service port number,
normally 6470.
Do not change the default port numbers (6470, 6471)
unless they conflict with some other product on your
network. The numbers must be greater than 1024. If you
change the base port, enter the new value in the
configuration of your debugger (and, for UNIX
workstations, in the /etc/services file).
To assign an IP address of 192.6.94.2 to the analysis probe,
enter the following command:
R>lan -i 192.6.94.2
If you’re using a LAN connection, you can telnet to the
analysis probe from a computer on the network and enter
commands (see “To access the build-in commands via telnet" on
page 48).
To set LAN parameters using DHCP
If there is a DHCP server on your network which responds to
BOOTP requests and supports “static allocation” of IP
addresses, it can be used to set the analysis probe’s LAN
parameters.
Ask your system administrator to set up the IP address and
other LAN parameters for the analysis probe on the DHCP
server.
N4217A Installation Guide
47
5 Troubleshooting and Repair
You will need to supply the link-level address of the analysis
probe. The link-level address (LLA) is printed on a label above
the LAN connector on the analysis probe. This address is
configured in each analysis probe shipped from the factory and
cannot be changed.
To connect the LAN cable
Connect the LAN cable to the connector on the analysis probe.
Be sure to use the appropriate Category 3 or Category 5 cable
for your LAN.
To cycle power on the analysis probe
1 Cycle power on the analysis probe by powering it off then on
again.
When using DHCP, you must cycle power in order for the
analysis probe to send out a DHCPDISCOVER packet so that
its LAN parameter settings can be set automatically by a
server.
When using a serial connection, you must cycle power in
order for the analysis probe’s LAN parameter changes to take
effect.
2 Wait at least 20 seconds for the analysis probe to recognize
the LAN.
3 To verify that the analysis probe is now active and on the
network, follow the instructions in the “Communicating with
the analysis probe” chapter.
To access the build-in commands via telnet
1 Verify your analysis probe is now active and on the network
by issuing a telnet command from a networked computer to
the analysis probe’s IP address.
Example
48
$ telnet 192.35.12.6
R>
R>
N4217A Installation Guide
5 Troubleshooting and Repair
If you do not see a prompt, press the Return or Enter key a few
times.
This connection will give you access to the analysis probe’s
built-in command interface.
2 To enter a command, type it in at the built-in command
interface prompt, and press the Return or Enter key.
For example, to view the LAN parameters, enter the “lan”
command.
Example
R>lan
lan is enabled
Link Status is UP
10BaseT
lan -i 130.29.66.134
lan -g 130.29.64.1
lan -s 255.255.248.0
lan -p 6470
Ethernet Address: 0030D300A10C
3 To exit from the telnet session, type Ctrl-d at the prompt.
If you cannot “telnet” to the analysis probe
✔ Refer to “Verifying Analysis Probe LAN Communications" on
page 49.
Verifying Analysis Probe LAN Communications
Follow these steps if there are problems establishing LAN
communications to the analysis probe from a debugger or by
using telnet on a networked computer.
Step 1. Verify the physical connection
1 Make sure that the proper LAN cable is connected.
• Use a Category 5 cable if your connection is running at
100 Mbps (100BASE-TX).
• Use a Category 3 cable if your connection is running at
10 Mbps (10BASE-T).
2 With the analysis probe powered on, look at the LAN status
lights to verify that the analysis probe is seeing LAN activity.
N4217A Installation Guide
49
5 Troubleshooting and Repair
The yellow LED, on the right side of the connector, indicates
LAN activity (receive or transmit).
The green LED, on the left side of the connector, is lit when
the LAN interface is operating in 100Base-TX mode.
No activity indicates a problem with the LAN port or cable.
Contact your network system administrator.
Step 2. Use the “ping” command on a networked computer
These instructions assume you are using a personal computer
running Microsoft® Windows® 95 or Windows® 98. The
procedure for other operating systems is slightly different.
1 Open an MS-DOS Command Prompt window, or choose
Start->Run....
2 Enter the “ping” command followed by the IP address of the
analysis probe.
Example
C:\WINDOWS>ping 192.35.12.6

N4217A Installation Guide
5 Troubleshooting and Repair
3 If ping gets replies from the analysis probe (but you are
unable to telnet to it), try rebooting the analysis probe by
turning its power switch off then on again.
Problems with analysis probe firmware could lead to situations
where the LAN interface is up and running but you are not able
to telnet to the analysis probe or, if you are able to telnet to the
analysis probe, you are not able to enter commands.
If there are LAN connection problems
If the results of the “ping” command shows something like
“100% packet loss” or “Destination host unreachable”:
✔ Make sure that you have connected the analysis probe to the
proper power source and that the power light is lit.
✔ Make sure that you wait for the power-on self test to complete
before connecting.
✔ If you have just changed the IP address of the analysis probe,
leave the analysis probe powered on and connected to the
LAN for a few minutes, then try again.
Some hubs, routers, and hosts maintain tables of IP
addresses and link-level addresses. It may take a while for
these tables to be updated.
✔ Make sure that the analysis probe’s IP address is set up
correctly.
To do this, repeat the steps shown in “To set LAN parameters
using the serial port" on page 46.
✔ If the analysis probe is on a different subnet than the host
computer, make sure that the gateway address is set up
correctly.
The default gateway address of 0.0.0.0 does not allow the
analysis probe to communicate with computers on other
subnets.
N4217A Installation Guide
51
5 Troubleshooting and Repair
If it takes a long time to connect to the network
✔ Check the subnet masks on the other LAN devices connected
to your network. All of the devices should be configured to
use the same subnet mask.
Subnet mask error messages do not indicate a major problem.
You can continue using the analysis probe.
If there are many subnet masks in use on the local subnet, the
analysis probe may take a very long time to connect to the
network after it is turned on.
Using the Analysis Probe’s Built-In Commands
The analysis probe has a built-in command interface which you
can use for configuring or troubleshooting the analysis probe.
You can access the the built-in command interface via:
• A serial connection (as may have been used in “To set LAN
parameters using the serial port” on page 46).
• A telnet (LAN) connection.

Safety Notices
This apparatus has been designed and tested in accordance with IEC Publication 1010,
Safety Requirements for Measuring Apparatus, and has been supplied in a safe condition. This is a Safety Class I instrument (provided with terminal for protective earthing).
Before applying power, verify that the correct safety precautions are taken (see the following warnings). In addition, note the external markings on the instrument that are
described under "Safety Symbols."
Warnings
• Before turning on the instrument, you must connect the protective earth terminal of the
instrument to the protective conductor of the (mains) power cord. The mains plug shall
only be inserted in a socket outlet provided with a protective earth contact. You must not
negate the protective action by using an extension cord (power cable) without a protective conductor (grounding). Grounding one conductor of a two-conductor outlet is not
sufficient protection.
• Only fuses with the required rated current, voltage, and specified type (normal blow,
time delay, etc.) should be used. Do not use repaired fuses or short-circuited fuseholders. To do so could cause a shock or fire hazard.
• If you energize this instrument by an auto transformer (for voltage reduction or mains
isolation), the common terminal must be connected to the earth terminal of the power
source.
• Whenever it is likely that the ground protection is impaired, you must make the instrument inoperative and secure it against any unintended operation.
• Service instructions are for trained service personnel. To avoid dangerous electric
shock, do not perform any service unless qualified to do so. Do not attempt internal service or adjustment unless another person, capable of rendering first aid and resuscitation, is present.
• Do not install substitute parts or perform any unauthorized modification to the instrument.
• Capacitors inside the instrument may retain a charge even if the instrument is disconnected from its source of supply.
• Do not operate the instrument in the presence of flammable gasses or fumes. Operation
of any electrical instrument in such an environment constitutes a definite safety hazard.
• Do not use the instrument in a manner not specified by the manufacturer.
To clean the instrument
If the instrument requires cleaning: (1) Remove power from the instrument. (2) Clean the
external surfaces of the instrument with a soft cloth dampened with a mixture of mild
detergent and water. (3) Make sure that the instrument is completely dry before reconnecting it to a power source.
