Multi-Hosting

CMD's multi-host solution can support disk, tape, and optical devices including jukeboxes. It gives you the ability to completely share an array of disks and tapes between multiple VAX systems running VAX cluster software. Multi-hosting configuration instructions are given in Chapter 4.

Refer to Appendix A for supported disk and tape devices.

Partitioning

CDU-720 gives you"the ability to partition devic~s.

Partitioning makes one physical device appear as two or four equal sized logical devices. Partitioning is used for operating systems that do not support large devices such as RT-l1.

Partitioning configuration instructions are given in Chapter 4.

Tape Monitor Utility

The Tape Monitor UtilityTM (TMU) is an application software that works exclusively with CMD SCSI host adapters as an optional feature for

VAX/VMS systems.

This Tape Monitor UtilityTM displays the tape drive vendor identification, drive firmware revision, the remaining tape capacity, percentage/number of rewrites during writes or percentage/number of ECC reays during reads (see manufacturer's documentation for returns whether percentages or numbers),

2-4 Features and Specifications

c.;uu-/~u and current tape operations such as read, write, write file mark, space, rewind, etc. You can install multiple COU-720's and tape drives in one site and observe all tape activity from any VAX terminal locally or across the network without any additional add-in hardware. You can also open a file to log all the information during unattended backup.

To install the Tape Monitor Utility, follow the instructions given in the accompanying CMD Tape Monitor Utility User's Manual part number

MAN-oOOTMU-QOO and install jumper shunt as given in Chapter 3, subsection

"Tape Monitor Utility at:td SCSIformat ON-LINE."

SCSlformat ON-LINE

The SCSIformat ON-LINE (FMT) is an application software that works exclusively with CMD SCSI host adapters as an optional feature for

VAX/VMS systems. This SCSIformat ON-LINE allows you to format the disk drives without interfering with the other devices on the SCSI bus. T·o install

SCSIformat ON-LINE follow the instructions given in the accompanying

SCSIformat ON-LINE User's Manual and install jumper shunt as given in

Chapter 3, subsection "Tape Monitor Utility and SCSIformat ON-LINE."

Hardware Shadowing

The Super Shadow COU-720/TMS is a hardware variation of the

CDU-720/TM. Installation and setup ofCMD shadowing host adapters are simplified with the CMD On-Board Utilities. This easy to use menu-driven utility allows you to quickly configure virtually any combination of disk shadow sets. See Chapter 4 for Hardware Shadowing Configuration.

The hardware disk shadowing on DEC computers enables simultaneous writing of data to two shadow set members. This provides an exact real-time duplicate data set that can be later retrieved by the user if data on primary disk becomes unaccessible.

The access performance benefits are derived from the ability to read data from a particular disk in the shadow set that responds faster. By adapting specific host adapter resident firmware algorithms, CDU-720/TMS provides incredible performance benefits with disk access time reduced 1000/0 or more during reads.

The hardware-based shadowing technique also results in far less VMS overhead and much higher data availability than software solutions.

Features and Specifications 2-5

CDU-720

You can now configure complete SCSI drive failure tolerant subsystems built around Super Shadow host adapters. When used in conjunction with other

CMD exclusive features like Multi-Host capability, subsystem data availability can be increased substantially.

SCSI Library Manager

The SCSI Library Manager (SLM) is an optional application software that works exclusively with CMD SCSI host adapter CDU-720/TMJ for

VAX/VMS systems.

This SCSI Library Manager was designed to work with multiple jukeboxes as well as a single jukebox with from one to five erasable optical or WORM drives installed. With just a few menu-driven keystrokes SLM controls all basic operations like inserting, removing and flipping erasable or WORM cartridges from the drive unit.

In addition to giving you complete control of jukebox functions, SLM also has a build-in callable user interface allowing you to customize SLM to your needs. This is especially useful for applications to support file management.

Generic SCSI Adapter

The Generic SCSI Adapter (GSA) is an application software that works exclusively with CMD SCSI host adapter CDU-720/TMP for VAX/VMS systems.

This Generic SCSI Adapter allows you to send the generic SCSI commands to the disk or tape driyes through the standard DEC

DU

driver. The GSA itself is a simple and straightforward callable user interface providing an easier way for you to communicate with the device directly.

Installation

This chapter instructs you on configuring the COU-720 and installing it into the system. Follow the instructions in this chapter in the order presented.

Determining eSR

Address

Before you install the CDU-720 SCSI host adapter under the VMS operating system you must determine the Control and Status Register (CSR) address for the CDU-720.

For the CDU-720/M or CDU-720/T, only one CSR address is required. For the CDU-720 /TM, two CSR addresses ate required. The following procedure shows one method of determining the new CSR address for the CDU-720.

WARNING Do not install the new CDU-720 in the system at this time.

1 Boot the VMS system and log into the system manager account.

2

At the DCL $ prompt, enter

me sysgen.

For other mnemonics, refer to VMS system manager's guide.

Use the corresponding CSR address to configure the CSR jumper settings of the CDU-720 (see "CSR Address Selection").

At the prompt

SYSGEN,

enter

[CTRL] + Z to exit the SYSGEN Utility.

NOTE

VMS will automatically program the CDU-720's interrupt vector register to match the vector assigned by the system. The vectors of OHVll or other controllers might change when the CDU-720 is added to the system; see manufacturer s documentation to configure vectors and device CSR addresses if hardware selectable.

The example in

Figure 3-1 explains the Sysgen Utility procedure for installing the

CDU-720/TM in VMS system. In this example, the CSR addresses of PUB and PTB should be used to configure the CSR jumpers of the CDU-720/TM. In the example, notice the CSR and vector changes for the OHVl1.

NPR and four micro second Dwell time.

SyndAsync Mode Selection

The CDU-720 comes standard in synchronous (sync.) mode. Most SCSI devices support to sync. mode.

In sYI:lc. mode, CDU ... 720 will automatically communicate with each SCSI device connected to find out whether the sync. mode is supported by the device.

In async. mode, CDU-720 will communicate with the SCSI device asynchronously even if the SCSI device supports sync. mode. Most of the sync. SCSI devices ?lIso support async. mode.

You can change the CDU-720 to async. mode using the jumpers listed in

Table 3-8; these jumpers control the overall sync./async. mode selection and will override the On-Board Utility sync. mode set-up.

Installation

This section gives you instructions for installing the CDU-720 into a system.

Remember to tum off the power of the system and SCSI devices while installing the SCSI cable and terininator.

SCSI Host Adapter 10 Selection

Each device on the SCSI bus requires a unique SCSI identification address

(0-7). SCSI ID 7 has the highest priority on the bus and SCSI ID 0 has the lowest priority. The CDU-720 SCSI Host Adapter is factory configured to SC$I

ID 7. Do not change this setting unless you are setting a multi-hosting configuration (see Multi-hosting in Chapter 4).

SCSI I D for Target Devices

Each SCSI device (initiator or target) on the SCSI bus requires a unique SCSI

ID number. Since the CDU-720 has been set to SCSI ID 7 (initiator), target devices must be configured from SCSI ID 0 to 6. For the CDU-720jTM, if you have more than four disks drives or three tapes drives you

must

use the

On-Board Utility to change the configuration; otherwise,

do not

change the configuration. See Table 3-13 for SCSI Device ID

CDU-720 Mounting Slot Selection

The CDU-720 can be installed in any priority on the standard PDP-11 Unibus

SPC backplane. The CDU-720 is a DMA device and requires the Nonprocessor Grant (NPG) jumper on the SPC card slot in which the controller is being installed be removed. It is recommended that the CDU-720 be placed in front of other devices on the Urubus except when there is an Ethernet controller which should go first. The CDU-720 should be inserted into C, D, E,

F sockets of a Unibus slot.

02) and the external SCSI devices. '

• When the CDU-720 and the external SCSI devices are installed in separated cabinets, the shielded SCSI cable should be used to meet

FCC requirements. A 2S-signal twisted-pair cable must be used to eliminate the crosstalk between adjacent signals causing spurious pulses on differential signals which will occur even at slow data transfer rates and short cable distances. Each pair should be connected to the same signal, one wire to the positive and the other wire to the negative signal.

The CDU-720 can be installed in any position of the SCSI cable. If the

CDU-720 is installed in either end of SCSI cable, on-board terminators should remain on board.

If the CDU-720 is in the middle of the SCSI bus, on-board terminators should be removed.

Single-ended-The

SCSI bus signals should be terminated with 220-ohms to

+5-volts and 330-ohms to ground at each end of the cable. The CDU-720 provides on-board removable terminators (RN9, RNlO, and RN14), which are next to the SCSI connector Jl.

Differential-Every

differential signal pair should be terminated with

330-ohms resistor between the negative signal and +5-volts, 330-ohms between the positive signal and ground, and l50-ohms between the positive and the negative signal at each end of the SCSI cable. Insert 330-ohm resistors at RNl, RN2, RN6 and RN7. Insert ISO-ohm resistors at RN3, RN4, RN5 and

RN8. The resistor slots are located next to the connector J2.

SCSI Bus Terminator Power

Any SCSI terminator (on-drive or external) needs to be powered by at least one SCSI device, otherwise the SCSI signals will be pulled down. Typically an initiator (SCSI host adapter) provides the power to the on-board terminator, external SCSI terminator and on-drive terminator when the drive is powered off. Anytime an external SCSI terminator (instead of the on-drive SCSI terminator) is used, the SCSI terminator power option of the CDU-720 has to be enabled, i.e. install jumper shunt at WI or W3.

A minimum conductor size of 28-AWG shall be employed to minimize noise effects and ensure proper distribution of optional terminator power. The

CDU-720 and CDU-722 supplies terminator power to the TERMPWR pin (Jl, pin 26; J2, pin 25 and 26), through a fuse, a diode and jumper block W2 for differential and W3 for single.-ended (see Table 3-14).

Setup

This chapter will assist you in setting up the CDU-720 and your system for use.

On-Board Utility

The CDU-720 SCSI host adapter comes with a general purpose On-Board

Utility for all systems. The On-Board Utility can test the sy?tem slot, SCSI cable, and SCSI devices connected to the CDU-720. Accessing the Utility can be done through PDP system or the RS-232 Port. Be sure to" complete utility functions, explained at the end of this chapter.

Accessing the Utility Through the PDP System

The On-Board Utility Program can be accessed by means of an ODT command for PDP systems. One example is shown with the SCSI host adapter set to the first disk CSR address.

NOTE

The following sections will illustrate the On-Board Utility from the RS-232 Port. There may be some variation in the Mairi Menu and the SCSI Host Adapter Utility

Menu. If you are accessing from the Main Menu, simply chose the correct number for each option.

Changing LUN Offset

When a system has a HSC or in a VAX. cluster it will be necessary to change the LUN (Logical Unit Number) offset. Each MSCP drive requires a different Unit Number so that the unit numbers are not duplicated. If there are no other MSCP controllers in the system, the LUN offset can be 0.

If there exists another MSCP controller with four drives (0 to 3) in a VAX cluster configuration, then the L UN offset should be four or above. In the case that LUN offset is equal to 10, SCSI ID

°

will be DUBIO and SCSI ID 1 will be

DUBll. The drives will show up as such DUAO, DUAl, DUA2, DUA3,

DUBIO, DUBll (see section, "SCSI ID for Target Drives" in

Chapter 3 for explanation).

Follow these procedures to configure L UN offset.

An example on the next page is given for each type of controller to show how the unit numbers can be determined. Refer to Figure 4-5 if necessary.

COU-7201T-Tape drives must be configured starting from SCSI ID 0 to properly use the information from Table 4-2.

MUO

will be unit number 0; this is with LUN offset set to O. Setting the LUN offset to 10 will change the MU number to 10 (ie.,

MU10),

making the unit number 10.

COU-720/M-Disk drives must be configured starting from SCSI ID 0 to properly use the information from Table 4-2.

DUO

will be unit number o.

This is with LUN offset set to O. Setting the LUN offset to 10 will change the

DU

number to 10 (ie.,

DU10),

making the unit number 10.

Setup 4-17

4-18 Setup

CDU-7201TM-Default is four disk drives and three tape as shown in Table

4-2. If you have more than four disk drives or three tape drives, follow these guidelines-disk drives must start at SCSI ID 0 and tape drives must start after the last disk drive's SCSI ID number and reconfigure the CDU-720/TM

(see subsection, "Displaying SCSI Devices and Setting Up Configuration").

Note the example below: .

SCSI ID 0 disk

SCSI ID 1 disk

SCSI ID 2 disk

SCSI ID 3 disk

SCSI ID 4 disk

SCSI ID 5 tape

SCSI ID 6 tape

SCSI ID 7 is initiator (CDU-720 /TM)

The

MU

and

DU

numbers are the unit numbers mapped back to the operating system. If the CDU-720 /TM is configured following these guidelines, you can apply this formula to determine the unit number mapped back to the operating system:

SCSI ID of the disk drive

+ the LUN offset for disk

= unit number for disk

SCSI ID of tape drive number of disk drives

+ LUN offset for tapes

= unit number for tape

Multi-Hosting Configuration

The following is a list of software requirements for multi-hosting; refer to

Appendix A for supported multi-hosting devices:

• VMS version 5.3 or above

• VAX cluster software must be running on both systems with at least one of the DEC's interconnects operational

• Tape drives can only be mounted to one system at a time

• Allocation classes must be the same for all systems when installing disk drives (value must not equal 0).

Using VMS and the CDU-720/M or CDU-720/TM, you can multi-host by following the instructions below:

1 Configure the CDU-720 to SCSI ID 7 for the first computer; configure the

CDU-720 to SCSI ID 6 for the second computer. If you need to alter the

Host Adapter SCSI ID change the jumper settings as shown in Table 4-3.

If other MSCP disks are in the cluster, follow the rules in the subsection "Changing LUN Offset" in liOn-Board Utility" so that each device has a unique unit number.

Exit out of the On-Board Utility.

NOTE

In a

multi-hosting system the

physical disk device name must be identical on both systems.

3 Terminate both

physical ends of the SCSI bus.

Single-ended-If

the CDU-720 is at either end of the SCSI bus, remove on-board terminators, RN9, RNIO, RN14, and use a pass-through terminator as close to the board as possible. If the CDU-720 is in the middle of the SCSI bus, RN9, RNIO and RN14 terminators

must

be removed,

do not

use pass through terminators.

Differential-If

the CDU-720 is at either end of the SCSI bus, remove on-board terminators, RNl, RN2, RN3, RN4, RNS, RN6, RN7, RN8 and use a pass-through terminator as close to the board as possible. If the

CDU-720 is in the middle of the SCSI bus, RNl, RN2, RN3, RN4, RNS,

RN6, RN7, and RN8 terminators

must

be removed,

do not

use pass through terminators.

In the event that one system becomes inoperable with only two nodes in the

VAX cluster, a quorum disk must be used to count as a vote; this keeps the other system running. Refer to VMS V AXcluster manual order number

AA-LA27 A-TE to set up a quorum disk and a VAX cluster.

The following is a glossary of frequently used SCSI terms. ;

Connect-The function that occurs when an initiator selects a target to start an operation.

Disconnect-The function that occurs when a target release control of the

SCSI bus, allowing it to go to the BUS FREE phase.

Initiator-A SCSI device (usually a host system) that requests an operation to be performed by another SCSI device.

LUN-Logic Unit Number.

Peripheral device-A peripheral that can be attached to a SCSI device (e.g., magnetic disk, magnetic tape, or optical disk).

Reconnect -The function that occurs when a target selects an initiator to continue an operation after a disconnect.

SCSI address--The octal representation of the unique address (0-7) assigned to an SCSI device. This address would normally be assigned and set in the

SCSI device during system installation.

Troubleshooting

VMS Analyze/Error Utility

The CDU-720 logs controller dependent information in

ERRLOG.SYS

file.

You can use the VMS ANALYZE/ERROR Utility to open the file

ERRLOG.SYS

and display the error messages for troubleshooting. By including option switches such as /SINCE=DATE and /INCLUDE=MUBO, you may define the time reference and device. To enter the ANALYZE/ERROR

Utility, log onto the system and enter the following command:

anal errl since=[time1Iinclude=[device1

Some examples are shown by the following:

To view all errors that VMS has logged, enter:

analerr .

To view the errors only on tape devices, enter:

anal errlinc

VMS SYSGEN Connect Statement

To properly use the CONNECT statement in the SYSGEN Utility of VMS 5.0 and newer versions, the following rules must be followed.

1

Run the SYSGEN Utility, from either terminal mode or through a command file by entering at the system prompt MC SYSGEN.

2

It is recommended that you use SYCONFIG.COM if an automatic command file is used. :

Issue the CONNECT statement to connect the controller by entering the following line at the SYSGEN prompt:

CONNECT aaaaIADAPTER=bbbICSR=% Occccccccl

VECTOR=%OdddJDRIVER=eeDRIVER

Where:

aaaa-the

designation of the controller (no:) such as PTBO.

bbb-the

adapter number which can be found from the SYSGEN utility

SHOW/CONFIG

(the NEXUS number) in decimal. ccccccce-the CSR of the controller being added on the specified NEXUS preceeded by

%0

(letter

0) in octal.

ddd-the

VECTOR of the controller being added on the specified NEXUS preceeded by %0 (letter 0) in octal.

ee

-the name of the driver for the controller being connected.

CDU·720 Quick Reference Guide

I. Determining eSR Address

Before you install the COU-720 SCSI host adapter under the VMS operating system you must determine the Control and Status Register (CSR) address from which the COU-720 will be accessed.

For the COU-720/M, or COU-720/T, only one

CSR address is required. For the COU-720/TM, two CSR addresses are required. The following procedure shows one method of determining the new CSR address to be used for the COU-720.

Do not Install the new CDU-720 In the system now.

1 Boot the VMS system and log into the system manager account.

2 At the DCL $ prompt, enter

me sysgen.

3 At the prompt

sysgen,

enter showlconfig. The

Sysgen Utility will display all the device controllers installed in the system and their corresponding CSR addresses and vecto~.

Make a note of this list. .

4 At the prompt

sysgen,

enter config. This will bring you to the

device

prompt.

S At the prompt

device,

enter the following for your COU-720 model [enter all devices on the

Unibus, not just the new device being added at present]:

For COU-720/M enter

UDA,X

For COU-720/T enter

mS1,

Y

For COU-720/TM enter

UDA,X

and mSl,

Y where:

X is the number of installed UDA type controllers plus 1 (for new one being added)

Y is the number of installed

TU81 type controllers plus 1 (for new one being added).

6 At the prompt

device,

enter

[CTRL]

+

Z.

The

Sysgen Utility will display Ule CSR addresses for all the controllers. Make sure that no other vectors or CSR addresses have changed; if they have, make the appropriate changes to the devices.

The VMS mnemonic' for MSCP disk controllers are PUA, PUB, PUC; etc. The VMS mnemonic for TMSCP tape controllers are

PTA,

PTB, PTC, etc. For other mnemonics, refer to

VMS system manager's guide.

7 At the prompt

sysgen,

enter

[CTRL] + Z to exit the Sysgen Utility. VMS will automatically program the COU-720's interrupt vector register to match the vector assigned by the system. The vectors of Ule controllers might change when the COU-720 is added to the system; see manufacturer's documentation to configure vectors and device CSR addresses if hardware selectable.

II. eSR Address Selection

Use the CSR address obtained above to configure the CSR jumper seHings of the COU-720. as shown in Tables 1-4. Refer to Appendix C, COU-

720 User's Manual for other CSR jumper settings.

3 Install the CDU-720 into any priority on the standard PDP-II Unibus SPC backplane. The

CDU-720 is a DMA device and requires the

Non-processor Grant (NPG) jumper on the

SPC card slot in which the controller is being installed be removed. Place the CDU-720 in front of other devices on the Unibus except when there is an Ethernet controller. The

CDU-720 should be inserted into C, D, E, F sockets of a Unibus slot.

4 The Non-Processor Grant Signal (NPG) signal jumper is located at pins CAl to CDI on the

Unibus backplane. Figure 1 is a DDII-DK nine-slot backplane seen from the rear. To locate the NPG jumper follow these instructions: a From the rear of the backplane locate the card slot in which the board is to be installed. Each card slot is four pins wide. b Locate the C socket and then locate the pins CA 1 and CD 1. Remove the jumper wire between the two pins as shown in

Figure 1.
