The Question is:
I have OpenVMS 7.1 running on a satellite node on a VAX 4000-105A. Previously
I had a VAX 4000-100 running with this node in a mixed CI cluster with 3 Alpha
4100s running OpenVMS 7.3-1, 5 HSJ40s (two redundant pairs for disks and one
standalone for tapes
, 2 HSG80s for disks and a Modular Data Router for tapes. However, I have been
asked to consolidate the VAX applications onto one system and retire the HSJs.
My problem is that the 4000-100 had two internal DSSI disks it used for paging
and swapping which I wanted to use on the 4000-105A for the same purpose.
After I installed the DSSI disks into the 4000-105A I can see them using >>>
SHO DEV from the console
, however, after I boot the new satellite configuration they are not visible,
even after I do a SYSGEN AUTOCONFIGURE.
I checked the [SYS4] root from where the original 4000-100 booted from and do
not see any obvious differences that allowed it to load the DSSI disks.
I have searched the Documentation, FAQ, and previous Ask the Wiz archives and
either I am not asking for the right search criteria or the information is not
to be found.
The Answer is :
Please contact your hardware services organization or HP services
for assistance with hardware reconfiguration and troubleshooting
-- if the OpenVMS I/O autoconfiguration is not finding the DSSI
disk devices, then the devices are not configured correctly, the
DSSI bus is not terminated, or there is a connectivity or other
hardware error lurking.
There is a general introduction to DSSI address configurations and
settings in the OpenVMS FAQ that may be of interest here, as well.
