EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage

Elements

1.1 General

Figure 1–1 shows the EF-series integrated storage elements (ISE). Figure 1–2 shows the RF- and RZ-series ISEs in the 5.25-inch configuration. Figure 1–3 shows the RF/RZ series ISEs in the 3.5-inch configuration. Note that the logic module is located on the right side for the RZ-series, and on the left side for the RF-series.

The three configurations vary as follows:

• EF-series ISEs are solid state disks.

• 5.25-inch RF- and RZ-series ISEs contain only one hard disk storage device.

• 3.5-inch RF/RZ-series ISEs can contain two hard disk storage devices.

BA400-series ISEs contain hardware and a circuit module to allow the ISE to be plugged into the enclosure backplane.

The term "Integrated Storage Element" (ISE) is used for any Digital Storage

Systems Interconnect (DSSI) or Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) storage device. An ISE contains an on-board intelligent controller in addition to the drive and the control electronics.

The DSSI interface supports up to seven ISEs. DSSI interfaces can be embedded within a CPU module, such as the KA670 module. The DSSI interface can also be separate modules, such as the KFQSA, which is interfaced by a single cable to a DSSI connector in the host enclosure.

EF-series ISEs are DSSI-based solid state disk drives.

EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements 1–5

RF-series ISE storage devices are based on the Digital Storage Architecture

(DSA). The RF-series ISEs utilize the DSSI bus and interface. There are two versions of the RF-series ISEs:

• 5.25-inch storage device

• 3.5-inch storage device

Note

Within a system enclosure it is possible to have up to seven disk storage devices, provided there is no tape drive in the enclosure. There can be three 3.5-inch dual storage devices and one 5.25-inch or one

3.5-inch single storage device.

RZ-series ISEs utilize the SCSI bus and interface. SCSI interfaces can be embedded within a CPU module, such as the KN220 module. The SCSI interface can also be separate modules, such as the HSD05, which is connected by a single cable to the system backplane in the host enclosure.

Note

VAX 4000 systems do not support RZ-series ISEs unless an HSD05 option is installed.

For more detailed information about configuring EF-, RF-, and RZ-series ISEs in a BA400-series enclosure, refer to the appropriate enclosure maintenance manual listed in Appendix A.

1.2 Installation Procedure

To install an EF-, RF-, or RZ-series ISE in a BA400-series enclosure, perform the following procedures.

1.2.1 ISE Installation in an Empty Slot

CAUTION

Static electricity can damage integrated circuits. Use the anti-static wrist strap and antistatic pad found in the static-protective field service kit (29-26246-00) when you work with the internal parts of a computer system.

1–6 EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements

Handle the ISE with care. Dropping or bumping the ISE can damage the disk surface. Carry or hold the ISE by the underside of the lower bracket to avoid damaging the drive module.

1. After the system manager shuts down the operating system, set the lock to the bottom position to open both the top and bottom enclosure doors

(Figure 1–10).

2. Set the power switch to off (0).

NOTE

The first (slot 0) mass storage cavity in the mass storage area is wider than the rest to accommodate a larger device, such as a tape drive. A small filler panel (70-27414-01) is used to fill the gap when an EF-,

RF-, or RZ-series ISE is installed in this first cavity.

7. Refer to Figure 1–9A and install the ISE.

Using the tabs in front of upper and lower finger cutouts, firmly push the ISE brackets until the interface card at the rear of the storage device plugs into its backplane connector. The guide tabs on the upper and lower bracket should line up with the cutouts in the chassis.

8. Tighten the two captive screws at the top and bottom of the bracket.

CAUTION

It is normal for there to be a small gap between the ISE mounting bracket tabs and the enclosure frame. Tighten the captive screws only until they are securely fastened (9 inch-pounds). Do not try to force the tabs to fit flush against the frame.

9. Plug the remote front panel cable(s) into the connector(s) inside the ISE front panel.

For 5.25-inch ISEs see Figure 1–9B.

For 3.5-inch ISEs see Figure 1–9C.

For the 5.25-inch ISEs only, use Velcro on the cable and on the inside of the

ISE front panel to secure the remote front panel cable. The 3.5-inch ISEs have a different connector scheme that does not require Velcro.

Note

The front panel for the 3.5-inch ISE has two remote front panel cables when there are two storage devices in the ISE. If the ISE contains only one storage device there is only one remote front panel cable.

10. Attach the ISE front panel to the enclosure by first fitting the panel’s lower tabs into position.

Fit the panel into position and secure the panel with its single captive

Phillips screw (Figure 1–9D).

1.3 Upgrading the ISE Storage Devices

The system’s storage capacity can be increased by:

• Replacing an ISE with one that has a larger storage capacity

• Installing a second storage device on a 3.5-inch ISE

The following sections describe how to upgrade the ISE storage devices.

1.3.1 Removing ISEs

To upgrade a system, it may be necessary to remove an ISE. To remove an ISE, use the following procedures.

CAUTION

Static electricity can damage integrated circuits. Always use the antistatic wrist strap and antistatic pad found in the static-protective field service kit (29-26246-00) when working with the internal parts of a computer system.

Handle ISEs with care. Dropping or bumping the ISE can damage the disk surface. Carry or hold the ISE by the underside of the lower metal bracket to avoid damage to the drive module.

1.3.3 Installing Upgraded ISEs in the Mass Storage Cavity

To install a 5.25-inch ISE upgrade or an upgraded 3.5-inch ISE, complete the following procedure:

1. For the EF-series ISEs, with the side that had the skid plate attached to it facing to the right, slide the ISE along the guide rails into the mass storage cavity (Figure 1–14A).

For 5.25-inch RF and RZ-series ISEs, and 3.5-inch RZ-series ISEs: with the ISE controller module facing to the right, slide the ISE along the guide rails into the mass storage cavity (Figure 1–14A).

For the 3.5-inch RF-series ISEs: with the controller module facing to the left, slide the ISE along the guide rails into the mass storage cavity

(Figure 1–14A).

2. Refer to Figure 1–14A and install the ISE.

Using the tabs in front of upper and lower finger cutouts, firmly push the ISE brackets until the interface card at the rear of the storage device plugs into its backplane connector. The guide tabs on the upper and lower bracket should line up with the cutouts in the chassis.

3. Tighten the two captive screws at the top and bottom of the bracket.

CAUTION

It is normal for there to be a small gap between the ISE mounting bracket tabs and the enclosure frame. Tighten the captive screws only until they are securely fastened (9 inch pounds). Do not try to force the tabs to fit flush against the frame.

EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements 1–21

4. Plug the remote front panel cable(s) into the connector(s) inside the ISE front panel.

For 5.25-inch ISEs see Figure 1–14B.

For 3.5-inch ISEs see Figure 1–14C.

For the 5.25-inch ISEs only: use Velcro on the cable and on the inside of the ISE front panel to secure the remote front panel cable. The 3.5-inch

ISEs have a different connector scheme that does not require Velcro.

Note

The front panel for the 3.5-inch ISE has two remote front panel cables when there are two storage devices in the ISE. If the ISE contains only one storage device there is only one remote front panel cable.

5. Attach the ISE front panel to the enclosure by first fitting the panel’s lower tabs into position. Fit the panel into position and secure the panel with its single captive Phillips screw (Figure 1–14D).

1.3.4 Bus Node ID Plug Installation

The 3.5-inch configuration has two node ID plugs for two storage devices.

When a 3.5-inch configuration contains only one storage device, the node ID plug for the empty cavity is unnumbered.

To insert a bus node ID plug (12-28766-19) align the two center prongs with the two center slots of the receptacle on the ISE front panel (Figure 1–15).

Push the plug firmly into the receptacle. To remove a bus node ID plug, grasp it firmly and pull it straight out.

Use the following rules for numbering IDs for EF-, RF-, and RZ-series ISEs:

• For each DSSI bus or SCSI bus, do not duplicate bus node numbers for storage elements. You can have only one storage element on bus 0 identified as node 0, one storage element as node 1, and so on.

• By convention, the ISEs are numbered in increasing order from right to left, starting with 0.

NOTE

The node ID address assigned by the plug is read only during the power-up sequence. If you change the bus node ID plug while the system is operating, you must turn off the system and then turn it back on for the new ID addresses to take effect.

Caution

On an EF-series ISE with a data retention unit, you must wait for the data retention cycle to complete, before turning the power back on.

1.4 Power-On Self-Test (POST)

Once the system is turned on, the EF-series, RF-series and RZ-series ISEs go through a power-on self-test (POST).

1.4.1 EF-and RF-Series, and 3.5-inch RZ-Series POST

POST is executed whenever power is applied. For EF- and RF-series, and

3.5-inch RZ-series ISEs when POST is executed successfully, the green Ready and red Fault LEDs (Figure 1–16) go through the following sequence:

1. Both LEDs are lit.

2. Both LEDs turn off.

3. The green Ready LED flashes.

4. The green Ready LED remains lit steadily, the red Fault LED remains off.

Once this sequence occurs, the ISE is ready to be used. If POST fails, the red

Fault LED remains lit.

1–26 EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements

On the EF-series, POST performs the following:

• Tests the control module.

• Tests the memory modules.

• Checks the configuration of the hard disk.

On the RF-series when POST begins, the first action it takes is to start the spindle spin-up sequence. Other tests are performed while the spindle is spinning up.

POST detects the following types of error conditions:

Controller errors—Caused by the hardware associated with the controller function of the drive module. These errors are fatal to the operation of the

ISE since the controller cannot establish a logical connection to the host.

Controller errors cause the red Fault LED to light.

Device errors—Caused by the hardware associated with the device control function of the drive module. These errors are not fatal since the ISE can establish a logical connection and report the error to the host. Device errors cause both LEDs to turn off for about 1 second, then the red Fault

LED lights.

If the ISE passes POST, continue to Section 1.5.

1.4.2 5.25-inch RZ-Series POST

POST for a 5.25-inch RZ-series ISE is executed during power-up or from a host-initiated command. The execution time for the test should be less than two seconds. If the unit passes POST, it waits for a software command such as

SHOW DEVICES. If POST fails, the device will not come on line and will not be listed in the device listing when the SHOW DEVICES command is issued.

EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements 1–27

1.5 Setting the DSSI ISE Parameters

Once installed and powered up, the DSSI ISE parameters must be set. This is done through the use of the local program PARAMS. The following procedures should be used when performing an ISE installation. If further information on the use of PARAMS is desired, refer to the appropriate integrated storage element user’s guide (see Appendix A) for a complete description of the

PARAMS utility.

1.5.1 Accessing PARAMS

PARAMS can be accessed in one of three ways, depending on the system you are using.

• Through OpenVMS, using the SET HOST command

• From the console, using the SET HOST command

• Through MDM, using the Device Resident Programs menu

1.5.1.1 Using OpenVMS

To access PARAMS on a system running OpenVMS Version 5.3 or higher, the command is:

$ SET HOST/DUP/SERVER=MSCP$DUP/TASK=PARAMS nodename where "nodename" is the node name of the ISE.

NOTE

To find the node name, enter SHOW DEVICES or SHOW CLUSTER at the $ prompt.

To produce a file in your directory of what appears on the screen, append the qualifier/log=filename.ext (where filename.ext is what you want to name the file) to the above command.

Once you are in PARAMS, control is turned over to the utility. All interaction is through the use of commands and responses.

To exit PARAMS, enter EXIT at the PARAMS> prompt, or press one of the following key combinations:

CTRL/C

,

CTRL/Y

, or

CTRL/Z

.

1–28 EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements

1.5.1.2 Using Console Commands

From console mode you can access the Diagnostic and Utility Program (DUP) to examine and set parameters. The command syntax depends upon whether your system uses an embedded adapter such as the KA670 module, or a Q–bus adapter (the KFQSA module).

Embedded Adapters

To access PARAMS from a system with an embedded adapter, enter:

>>> SET HOST/DUP/DSSI/BUS:<BUS_NUMBER>

<NODE_NUMBER> PARAMS where

<BUS_NUMBER> is the DSSI bus number (0 or 1) and <NODE_NUMBER> is the bus node ID (0–7) for the device on the bus.

NOTE

To find the DSSI bus number and node number, enter SHOW DSSI at the console ( >>> ) prompt.

KFQSA Storage Adapter

To access PARAMS from a system with a Q–bus adapter, enter:

>>> SET HOST/DUP/UQSSP/DISK <controller_number> PARAMS where

<controller_number> is the controller number (provided by the SHOW UQSSP display) for the device on the bus.

After you have completed setting and examining DSSI device parameters, enter the WRITE command at the PARAMS> prompt to save the device parameters you have changed using the SET command. The changes are recorded to nonvolatile memory.

If you have changed the allocation class or node name of a device, the DUP driver utility will ask you to initialize the controller. Answer Yes (Y) to allow the changes to be recorded and to exit the DUP driver utility.

If you have not changed the allocation class or node name, enter the EXIT command at the PARAMS> prompt to exit the DUP driver utility for the specified device.

EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements 1–29

1.5.1.3 Using MDM

If neither OpenVMS nor console commands are available on your system, you can access PARAMS through MDM using the following procedure:

1. Boot MDM.

2. Enter the date and time.

3. Select the menus in the following order:

• Service menu

• Device menu

• KFQSAA-KFQSA subsystem menu

• Device Utilities menu

• Device Resident Programs menu

When you select the Device Resident Programs menu, the following is displayed:

1.5.2 Setting the ISE Allocation Class

All DSSI ISEs are shipped with the allocation class set to 0. To determine what the allocation class should be set to, access a different ISE on the system and set the one you are installing to the same allocation class.

In multihost systems, you must assign the same allocation class to all host systems and all connected ISEs. This allocation class must be different from that of other systems or other hierarchical storage controllers (HSCs) in a cluster.

Use the following procedure to set the allocation class:

1. Determine what the allocation class should be set to by reading it from another ISE that is already working on the system. Use one of the procedures outlined in Section 1.5.1 to access PARAMS on the ISE from which you want to read this information.

2. At the PARAMS> prompt, enter SHOW ALLCLASS. The system displays the following:

Parameter Current Default Type Radix

----------------------------------------

ALLCLASS 1 0 Byte Dec B

PARAMS>

3. Make a note of the allocation class. In the example above, the allocation class has been set to 1. Exit PARAMS and return to the root prompt

(OpenVMS, console, or MDM).

4. Access PARAMS on the newly installed ISE, using one of the procedures outlined in Section 1.5.1.

EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements 1–31

5. Enter SHOW ALLCLASS. The system responds with:

Parameter Current Default Type Radix

----------------------------------------

ALLCLASS 0 0 Byte Dec B

PARAMS>

6. Enter SET ALLCLASS 1 (for our example). You want to set the ISE to the same allocation class as all the other ISEs on the DSSI bus.

7. Enter SHOW ALLCLASS to check the new allocation class.

The system responds with:

Parameter Current Default Type Radix

----------------------------------------

ALLCLASS 1 0 Byte Dec B

PARAMS>

8. Enter WRITE. The system responds with:

Changes require controller initialization, ok? [Y/ (N)]

9. Enter Y to save the new allocation class value.

1–32 EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements

1.5.3 Setting the MSCP Unit Number

The ISE is set at the factory to read the DSSI node ID as the MSCP unit number. Unit numbers for all DSSI devices connected to a system’s associated

DSSI buses must be unique. When more than one bus is being used, and your system is using a nonzero allocation class, you need to assign new unit numbers for devices on all but one of the DSSI buses.

When assigning a different unit number, you must also set the FORCEUNI parameter to 0. This allows the unit number you have set to be used. The factory setting for FORCEUNI is 1, forcing the DSSI node ID to be used as the

MSCP unit number.

The following example shows how to change the MSCP unit number:

PARAMS> sh unitnum

Parameter Current Default Type Radix

--------- ------------------------------------

UNITNUM 5 0 Word Dec U

PARAMS> set unitnum 21

PARAMS> sh unitnum

Parameter Current Default Type Radix

--------- ------------------------------------

UNITNUM 21 0 Word Dec U

PARAMS> sh forceuni

Parameter Current Default Type Radix

--------- ------------------------------------

FORCEUNI 1 1 Boolean 0/1 U

PARAMS> set forceuni 0

PARAMS> sh forceuni

Parameter Current Default Type Radix

--------- ------------------------------------

FORCEUNI 0 1 Boolean 0/1 U

PARAMS> write

EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements 1–33

1.5.4 Setting the ISE Node Name

Setting the ISE node name is an optional step. All DSSI ISEs come with a computer-generated node name. The user may wish to set this node name to a more recognizable character string.

The following example changes the node name from the default (R1EJAA) to the new string "SUSAN." When entering ASCII strings, you may use single quotes, double quotes, or no quotes at all.

PARAMS> show node

Parameter Current Default Type Radix

------------------------------------------

NODENAME R1EJAA RF31 String ASCII B

PARAMS> set node "susan"

PARAMS> show node

Parameter Current Default Type Radix

------------------------------------------

NODENAME SUSAN RF31 String ASCII B

PARAMS> write

NOTE

Using the WRITE command will make any changes permanent.

1.6 Testing the ISE

CAUTION

Running DRVTST may erase all user data on the ISE, and should only be used when installing a new ISE.

Once the ISE parameters are set, test the drive by using DRVTST, the local program. DRVTST is accessed in the same way as PARAMS, using one of the procedures outlined in Section 1.5.1. In this case, instead of specifying

PARAMS, specify DRVTST.

DRVTST is a comprehensive hardware test. Once invoked, it will prompt you to specify whether the test should be a read/write test or a read-only test.

After you specify the type of test, it will run for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes,

DRVTST will indicate either that the test passed, or that a failure occurred.

1–34 EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements

Once the ISE has passed DRVTST, the installation is complete. If further information on the use of DRVTST is desired, refer to the appropriate integrated storage element user’s guide (see Appendix A) for a complete description of the DRVTST local program.

1.6.1 DRVTST Example

The following example shows how to run DRVTST. In this example, DRVTST is accessed through OpenVMS on an ISE with a node name R1EJAA.

$ SET HOST/DUP/SERVER=MSCP$DUP/TASK=DRVTST R1EJAA

The program displays the following:

Copyright © 19nn Digital Equipment Corporation

Write/read anywhere on the medium? [1=Yes/(0=No)]

You must respond to the query for the program to continue. By answering yes

(1), you select a read-write test, and DRVTST prompts you with another query.

In this case, type 1

Return

, selecting a read-write test. DRVTST then displays the following:

User data will be corrupted. Proceed? [1=Yes/(0=No)]

This query gives you the chance to reconsider. If you answer no (0), then your response to the first query is overridden, and a read-only test is executed. If you answer yes (1), DRVTST begins executing a read-write test of the ISE.

In this case, type 1

Return

. During the test, the program displays the following message:

5 minutes to complete.

NOTE

You may abort the test at any time by pressing one of the following key combinations:

CTRL/C

,

CTRL/Y

, or

CTRL/Z

. If you abort the test, the informational message

Operation aborted by user

will be displayed.

If DRVTST is executed successfully, the following message is displayed:

Test passed.

EF-, RF-, and RZ-Series Integrated Storage Elements 1–35

1.6.2 Error Messages

If an error condition is found during the execution of DRVTST, an error message is displayed. Two types of errors are reported: soft errors, which are corrected during the operation of the ISE, and fatal errors, which prevent the

ISE from functioning.

The following table indicates the error messages you may see and what they mean.

Table 1–1 DVTST Error Messages

Message

Soft read error on head xx track yyyy.

Soft write error on head xx track yyyy.

Soft compare error on head xx track yyyy.

xxxx - Unit diagnostics failed.

xxxx - Unit read/write test failed.

Description

These are soft error messages which indicate that an operation succeeded, but that the error recovery firmware was invoked. These messages may indicate a forced-error flag or correctable ECC error, or that the read/write head was temporarily off-track. These are corrected during normal operation.

This is a fatal error. xxxx is the MSCP error code.

This is a fatal error. xxxx is the MSCP error code.

Make note of any soft error messages that are displayed for possible future reference. If you encounter a fatal error, do not complete the installation.

1.7 Setting the SCSI ISE Parameters

Refer to the HSD05 DSSI-to-SCSI Bus Adapter Operation Information for

BA400-Based VAX 4000 Systems manual (EK–HSDC5-IN.) for the procedures to set the SCSI ISE parameters.

2–2 TK-Series Tape Drive

2.2.1 Using the CONFIG Utility for Module Configuration and Naming

Each module in a system must use a unique device address and interrupt vector. The device address is also known as the control and status register

(CSR) address. Most modules have switches or jumpers for setting the CSR address and interrupt vector values. The value of a floating address depends on what other modules are housed in the system.

Set CSR addresses and interrupt vectors for a module as follows:

1. Determine the correct values for the module with the CONFIGURE command at the console I/O prompt (>>>). The CONFIG utility eliminates the need to boot the VMS operating system to determine CSRs and interrupt vectors. Enter the CONFIGURE command, then HELP, for the list of supported devices.

5.3 Completing the Installation

This section explains how to verify correct installation of the RRD/TLZ07 dual

ISE drives by performing the power-on self-test (POST).

Section 5.3.1 describes the POST for a CD–ROM drive.

Section 5.3.2 describes the POST for a TLZ07 tape drive.

5.3.1 RRD CD-ROM Power-On Self-Test

Use the following procedure to execute the POST:

1. Power on the system.

• The Busy indicator flashes for approximately 10 to 20 seconds.

Successful POST

After successful completion of the POST, the Busy indicator shuts off.

Have the system manager restart the operating system and assign a device name to the CD–ROM drive.

Unsuccessful POST

If the Busy indicator remains on continuously then the POST failed.

Attempt to clear the failure by powering off the system and then reexecuting the POST.

Check to be sure the CD is not loaded upside-down.

Check and reseat all ISE cable connections.

If the failure continues, refer to the appropriate system troubleshooting and diagnostics manual (Appendix A).

5–6 RRD/TLZ07 Dual ISE Drives

5.3.2 TLZ07 Power-On Self-Test

Use the following procedure to execute the POST:

1. Power on the system.

• If there is no cassette in the drive:

The Cassette and Write-Protect indicators flash for approximately 1 to

5 seconds and then shut off.

• If there is a cassette in the drive:

The Cassett and Write-Protect indicators flash for approximately 5 seconds, then the Write-Protect indicator indicates write-protect status and the Cassette indicator continues to flash at a slower rate until the cassette is loaded. After the cassette is loaded, the Cassette indicator remains on.

After completing a successful execution of the POST, have the system manager restart the operating system and assign a device name to the TLZ07 drive.

Unsuccessful POST

The POST failed if the Cassette and Write-Protect indicators flash continuously for more than 30 seconds.

Attempt to clear the failure by powering off the system and then reexecuting the POST.

If the failure continues, refer to the appropriate system troubleshooting and diagnostics manual (Appendix A).

RRD/TLZ07 Dual ISE Drives 5–7

5.3.3 Bus Node ID Plug

The RRD CD–ROM drive and the TLZ07 tape drive each use a bus node ID plug to identify, or address, the drives. The bus node ID that each drive uses is dependent on other SCSI devices in the system. The ID must be unique for each device on the bus.

Prongs on the back of bus node ID plugs identify the bus node ID number (and by default, the unit number) of the drives to the system. Bus node ID plugs are shipped with the host system or host expander.

To insert a bus node ID plug, align the two center prongs with the two center slots of the receptacle in the front panel assembly (Figure 5–1). Push the plug firmly into the receptacle. To remove a bus node ID plug, grasp it firmly and pull it straight out.

NOTE

If you change the bus node ID plugs while the system is operating, you must turn off the system and then turn it back on for the new plug positions to take effect.

The Digital Linear Tape Drive (DLT) family cartridge tape drives are 5.25-inch streaming linear recording tape devices, designed for systems requiring high performance, high data integrity, and unattended backup.

The DLT cartridge tape drive subsystems use the CompacTape III cartridge, which contains 335 meters (1100 feet) of half-inch-wide metal powder (MP) tape.

TF/TZ-Series Tape Drive 6–1

The TF/TZ-series cartridge tape subsystems are used primarily for data backup, for data archiving, and for loading software onto computer systems.

The TZ-series cartridge tape subsystems use the Small Computer System

Interface (SCSI) bus. The TF-series cartridge tape subsystems use the Digital

Storage Systems Interconnect (DSSI) bus.

6.2 TF/TZ-Series Tape Drive Installation

Use this procedure to install TF/TZ-Series tape drives.

NOTE

VAX 4000 systems do not support TZ-series ISEs unless an HSD05 option is installed.

CAUTION

Static electricity can damage integrated circuits. Use the antistatic wrist strap and antistatic pad found in the static-protective field service kit (29-26246-00) when you work with the internal parts of a computer system.

Handle the TF/TZ-series tape drive with care. Dropping or bumping the drive can damage the product. Carry or hold the drive by the underside of the lower metal bracket to avoid damaging the drive module.

, and the

The yellow Tape in Use indicator flashes while the tape drive initializes.

After initialization, with no cartridge loaded, the green Operate Handle indicator lights and a ‘‘beep’’ sounds.

1

The Write Protected indicator is yellow on the TZ87 tape drive, and orange on the TZ86 and

TF-series tape drives.

Successful POST

POST completes in about 13 seconds and the subsystem responds normally to all commands. However, it might take longer for the media to become ready.

After a bus reset, the tape drive responds with a bus selection timeout period.

After completing a successful execution of the POST, have the system manager restart the operating system and assign a device name to the TF/TZ-series drives.

Unsuccessful POST

The POST failed if all indicators continue to flash.

Attempt to clear the failure by powering off the system and then reexecuting the POST.

If the failure continues, refer to the appropriate system troubleshooting and diagnostics manual (Appendix A).

TF/TZ-Series Tape Drive 6–7

6.4 Setting the ISE Parameters

Once the tape drive passes power-on self-test, the DSSI parameters must be set. For TF-series tape drives this is done in the same manner as the RF-series

ISEs (refer to the procedure in Section 1.5).

For TZ-series tape drives the SCSI ISE parameters are set in the same manner as the RZ-series ISEs. Refer to the HSD05 DSSI-to-SCSI Bus

Adapter Operation Information for BA400-Based VAX 4000 Systems manual
