Allows the addition of hardware to the running system. Hardware may
be controllers, CI disks, NI networks, and CPUs. In addition, memory
may be added to the system with the MEMORY keyword. The first
address is the lower bound, the second is the upper bound. The
default input radix for the addresses is decimal. to change the
input radix, prefix the number with a "#". An address may also be
specified with the "K" or "P" suffix, e.g., ADD MEMORY 256K TO 512K.
Initiate the process which causes automatic configuration of the
disks and tapes on the system. This command is useful when equipment
was not present (powered off when the system was orgionally
bootstraped), e.g., field service was working on the gear. It can
also be used in the event that a drive was missed at bootstrap time,
e.g., a drive address thumb wheel was miss selected on a tape drive
at boot time or a lap plug had been pulled from an RP06 disk drive.
HELP allows you to display the function and format of any CONFIG
command. The format is;
CONFIG> HELP keyword
where keyword can be any one of the following CONFIG commands:
ADD AUTO-CONFIGURE HELP LOAD
REMOVE SET SHOW SHUTDOWN
Allows the loading of microcode into the CPUs, DX-20 controllers for
tape drives and disk drives, and CI or NI network interface
This command is the exact opposite of the ADD command. This command
will dynamically remove hardware from a running system. The options
are the same as that for the ADD command.
Allows the setting of certain parameters which control an action
automatically when some event occurs. The options are:
Enable automatic reload of the monitor. This command allows the
monitor to use the BOOTXT command string to automatically reload
the monitor when it crashes or is taken down. Note there are
other conditions that will prevent such an auto reload; this
command is a master enable. See also SET NO RELOAD.
2. BOOT-TEXT command-string
Set the boot text command string to the specified value. The
boot text command string is the command string passed to the
bootstrap on an automatic monitor reload. Since the bootstrap
interprets a space as an end-of-command character, multiple
commands may be specified on the same line by separating the
commands with spaces. The command string starts with the first
non-space, non-tab character after the keyword "BOOT-TEXT" and
ends with the end of line. A typical use of this command might
SET BOOT-TEXT /D DSKA:SYSTEM.EXE[1,4]
3. DUMP stopcd-type
Causes the monitor to take continuable dumps after the specified
4. IGNORE unit
Causes the monitor to ignore "online" interrupts fron the
Sets KLINIK line parameters on the specified CPUs. A carriage
return after the KLINIK keyword will enter the sub-command dialog
for the specified KLINIK parameters.
Enable the automatic reload of microcodes by the monitor. This
command allows the monitor to reload microcodes on the CPU(s) or
controller devices as well as network devices such as the CI and
Negates the effect of any of the other SET keywords.
Displays information about the current system configuration. Options
BOOT-TEXT HARDWARE-CONFIGURATION KLINIK STOPCODE-FLAGS
Take the system down with an RLD stopcode and reload it. Before
doing so, CONFIG asks the operator for the reason for the reload and
puts the address of the resulting string in AC 0. When looking at a
dump from an RLD stopcode, the reason the dump was taken can be
determined by examining user AC 0.
Take a continuable stopcode dump using the CI7 stopcode and continue
the monitor. Before doing so, CONFIG asks the operator for the
reason for the snapshot and puts the address of the resulting string
in AC 0. When looking at a dump taken from a CI7 stopcode, the
reason the dump was taken can be determined by examining user AC 0.
Initiate the process used to suspend system operations and write a
system sleep dump file. this dump file may be later reloaded with
the BOOT /REBOOT switch and the system operation continued.
