1 Verify Site Preparation
Caution
Review your system warranty. It may require that a Digital service
representative install your system to prevent damage to equipment or
software.
If you are installing a DSSI VAXcluster configuration, and you are a licensed
self-maintenance customer, you should be familiar with the contents of your DSSI
VAXcluster Installation and Troubleshooting manual.
Caution
If you are installing a DSSI configuration, to prevent system performance
degradation or data corruption caused by excessive ground offset voltages,
make sure your site power distribution system does not have any of the
grounding faults listed in your Site Preparation manual.
The installation instructions that follow assume:
•
Your site meets all the requirements listed in the system Site Preparation
manual.
•
All cables that you plan to connect to your system are in place and clearly
labeled.
Terminal data cables?
Telephone cables?
Network cables?
•
You have the following tools (not included in your shipment).
Scissors
Flat-blade screwdriver
Phillips (cross-point) screwdriver
Adjustable wrench

If you are not installing a factory-configured expander with your system, go to
Section 9.
If you are installing a factory-configured expander with your system:
1. Begin the installation of the expander as described in the manual shipped
with the expander. Make sure you connect the expander cables that will also
be connected to your system.
2. Return to this manual to connect the expander cables to the applicable system
connections described in the following sections.

Caution
If you are installing a DSSI configuration, to prevent system performance
degradation or data corruption caused by excessive ground offset voltages,
connect a ground cable between the expander and your system as
described in Section 8.5.
3. Complete the installation of the expander as described in the expander
manual.
4. Complete the installation of your system by completing the procedures
remaining in this manual (continue with Section 9).

8.1 Connecting the Q–Bus Cables
1. Find the two Q–bus cables labeled BC04V–09. One end of each cable should
be connected to the expander.
2. Connect the free ends of those cables to the two Q–bus Out connectors on
your system.
a. Connect the plug end of one of the cables to connector J1.

4. If applicable, install the terminator (removed in step 2) on the expander as
shown in the expander installation manual.
54
8.4 Connecting the Power Control Bus Cable
Caution
To maintain system operation, do not use the Power Control Bus cable in
a DSSI VAXcluster configuration.
1. Find the Power Control Bus cable labeled 17–02638–01. One end should be
connected to the SI connector on the expander.
2. Connect the free end of that cable to the MO connector.
MLO-007163
55
8.5 Connecting the Ground Cable
1. Find the Ground cable labeled 12–13756–A8. One end should be connected to
the expander.
2. Connect the free end of that cable to the Ground Wire Out bolt.
MLO-007164
9 Connect the System Power Cable
CAUTION
Do not connect your computer system to an IT power system (a power
system without a directly grounded neutral conductor). To prevent
damage, your system should be plugged into a dedicated (isolated) ground
circuit.
1. Make sure the system Power switch is set to off (0).
56
2. Make sure all devices connected to your system are turned off.
Printer?
External modem?
Console terminal?
Expander?
3. Find the power cable shipped with your system.
100 - 125 V
200 - 250 V
MLO-007165
4. Make sure the plug end of that cable matches your wall outlet or other power
source.
57
5. Insert the socket end of the cable into the power supply connector.
MLO-007166
6. Insert the plug end of the cable into your wall outlet or other power source.
10 Turn On the System and Select a Language
Caution
Do not operate your system without Digital module covers. They protect
the equipment, maintain proper airflow for cooling, and provide EMI-RFI
containment that meets international regulatory standards.
1. Turn on your console terminal.
Wait until the terminal performs its self-tests successfully.
2. If an expander is connected to your system, turn it on.
Make sure the AC indicator on the expander power supply glows orange. If
a Power Control Bus cable is installed, the expander will not power up until
the system is turned on.
3. Turn on your system.
Make sure the AC Present indicator, next to the Power switch, glows orange.
58
Within a few moments the following language selection menu, or something
like it, appears on your console terminal.
Note
If you are using an older terminal that does not support multiple
languages, this menu does not appear and the system defaults to English
(United States/Canada).

4. Select a language by typing its number and
Return .
Note
If you do not select a language within 30 seconds, the system defaults to
English (United States/Canada).
Within a few moments the console terminal displays a series of numbers
as the system tests itself. This example shows that display after successful
testing.

If the self-tests do not complete successfully, refer to your system
Troubleshooting and Diagnostics manual to find the source of the problem.
5. If the self-tests complete successfully, save the language you selected by
turning the Power-Up Mode switch to Run mode.

11 Close the System Doors
Note
If you plan to run diagnostic software immediately following the
installation, leave the upper door open. If you plan to start up factoryinstalled software immediately following the installation, leave both doors
open.
1. Push gently at the top right of the upper door and the bottom right of the
lower door.
MLO-004030
2. Turn the key to the middle position (both doors locked) or to the top position
(upper door unlocked).
The installation is complete. You can now place the system anywhere you want.
61
12 After Installation
1. Read your system Operation manual to learn how to use the system. Then
make sure the system is turned on and operating normally.
2. If you installed a configuration consisting of two or more enclosures connected
by a common DSSI bus, use a voltmeter to make sure the ground offset
voltage between any two enclosures does not exceed one of the limits listed
below.
Allowable Ground Offset Voltage
Total Bus Length
DC
AC (rms)
Up to 20 meters (65 feet)
200 millivolts
70 millivolts
20 to 25 meters (65 to 82 feet)
40 millivolts
14 millivolts
Total bus length includes all DSSI cable lengths, internal and external. Your
DSSI VMScluster Installation and Troubleshooting manual tells you how to
calculate internal cable lengths.
To measure the ground offset voltage, connect the voltmeter leads to bare
(unpainted) metal on each enclosure. If the voltage exceeds one of the limits,
call your Digital service representative.
Note
The ground offset voltage may vary over time, if equipment is added
to your system or plugged into your power outlets. Therefore, this
measurement does not guarantee that the voltage will remain within
acceptable limits.
3. Run the diagnostic software for your system as described in your system
Troubleshooting and Diagnostics manual.
4. If you have factory-installed software on your system, see the VMS Factory
Installed Software User Guide for the startup procedure. Otherwise, install
the software that you ordered with your system.
Note
Systems with VMS factory-installed software have a yellow sticker on the
front panel of the ISE containing that software.
