MicroVAX 3100-80 Problem

13/12/2007 - 06:56 von Alexander Horn | Report spam
Hi VAX-Gods,

I've a problem:

System: digital(TM) MicroVAX 3100-80 (KA47)
Model: 470ZM-B9
S/N: AY233C2253
SCSI Disk: Seagate ST31320N

Yesterday, I got my first ``own'' VAX,
but my Console Terminal (A transtec VT420) [later my OPA0, I hope]
displays the following content:

[...]
KA47-A V1.1-31E-V4.0
08-00-2B-2F-61-25
24MB
[...]

OK

83 BOOT SYS




_







I got a prompt :-)

A "SHOW DEV" says:

VMS/VMB ADDR DEVTYPE NUMBYTES RM/FX WP DEVNAM REV
ESA0 08-00-2B-2F-61-25
..HostID A/3 INITR




_







Something is wrong my "baby"... because the Seagate ST31150N is "OK"..

Also "SHOW CONFIG" says "OK" (NVR, DZ, CACHE, MEM, FPU, IT, SYS, NI and SCSI)

What now? :-)

Really, it's my first, ``own'' VAX... lol

C YA,

Have you set a proper SCSI ID on your seagate disk ?

Does the disk spin up ?
During the powerup sequence, do you see any question marks in the series
of dots and numbers that indicate self test progress ?

have you tried SHOW SCSI ?

HELP SHOW (or just HELP) will give you more info on what you can do on a
vax >>> prompt.

Are you sure the cables are properly connected to the disk drive ?

Do you have documentation for it ? If not:

http://www.vaxination.ca/vms/microvax/index.html

The above contains a few links to sites that have a whole bunch of PDF
files for varous vax models.

and www.seagate.com will have pinouts for your drive, especially how to
set SCSI ID.
