Installation From Packages (RPM or DEB)

The simulator and utilities are packaged into three packages:

  • vsim-1.0.97-1.i386.rpm is the primary package and contains the following:
    • The processor simulator
    • Card Reader, Card Punch, 5N, Qwikdisk, HT-SEQ, TPR, PRN, GCR, SSP, ODT and Uniline DLP's
    • Bootstrap code
    • V-Series COBOL74 and COBOL68 compilers
    • Linux-based assembler for stand-alone code generation.
    • Remote Job Entry utility
  • vsim-t27-1.0.097-1.i386.rpm contains the T27 block-mode terminal emulator and associated fonts.
  • vsim-timesharing-1.0.097-1.i386.rpm contains various components required to support CANDE timesharing:
    • A simulator for the B974 Data Communications Processor (DCP)
    • A simulator for the Inter-System Control HUB
    • The HC-2 (ISC) DLP
    • A system coldstart tape containing a pre-built GEMCOS MCS supporting four stations and the CANDE software.

The packages should be installed, as root, using the rpm -Uhv or dpkg -i commands. The simulator will be loaded in the /usr/lib/vsim directory.

Each simulated V-Series host is considered to be a virtual system. Once the simulator has been installed it will support an unlimited number of virtual systems. Virtual systems are named, and are stored in the vsim subdirectory of the users $HOME directory.

Installing the Fonts

The T27 terminal emulator requires fonts to be installed. Once, each time upon login to the system, open a terminal window and issue the following commands:

bash$ xset fp+ /usr/lib/vsim/fonts
bash$ xlsfonts | grep -i td830
-lurndal-td830-bold-r-normal--0-0-75-75-c-0-iso8859-1
-lurndal-td830-bold-r-normal--15-140-75-75-c-90-iso8859-1
-lurndal-td830-medium-r-normal--0-0-75-75-c-0-iso8859-1
-lurndal-td830-medium-r-normal--15-140-75-75-c-90-iso8859-1
bash $ 

The xset command may also be included in your .xsession or .xinitrc file, if applicable.

Creating a Virtual System

A virtual system is created using the /usr/lib/vsim/bin/generate.ksh script. The interactive script will ask a few questions and generate the appropriate simulator configuration files necessary to run a virtual system.

$ /usr/lib/vsim/bin/generate.ksh
Enter Hostname: test1
The following host types are supported:
   V310, V340, V380, V430, V460, V480,
   V490, V510, V530, V560, V580, V590
Enter Host Type: v380
Default Install Location (/home/ubuntu/vsim/test1)? 
Installing into /home/ubuntu/vsim/test1

The default configuration includes an UNILINE DLP configured
with OCS firmware.   The DLP will listen on designated TCP port for
a connection with a TD830-compatable terminal emulator.  Select a
port number between 1024 and 65536 that is not otherwise being used

Enter the port number for the OCS on channel 37: 6637
Please select datacomm type (none, telcom, b974): telcom

This configuration includes a TELCOM (Datacomm) DLP
Enter the port number on which the TELCOM DLP should listen for stations: 6655
Coldstart simulator configuration is '/home/ubuntu/vsim/test1/configs/coldstart.vsim'
Coldstart Configuration Carddeck is '/home/ubuntu/vsim/test1/carddecks/coldstart.crd'
Haltload  simulator configuration is '/home/ubuntu/vsim/test1/configs/haltload.vsim'

To start simulator, execute:

/home/ubuntu/vsim/test1/bin/startup.ksh coldstart

The script first asks for the name of the virtual system to create. This name will be used to name the subdirectory of $HOME/vsim where the virtual system magnetic tape, disk, pack, punched card images and printer output are stored. The name will also be the hostname supplied at coldstart on the HOSTNAME configuration card.

Directory Purpose
bin Holds the native simulator binary and various utilities.
carddecks Holds both input carddecks for the card reader DLP as well as output carddecks for the card punch DLP. Input carddecks are stored as standard ASCII text files with one card image per line (where each line is delimited by a single ASCII line-feed character). Lines shorter than 80 bytes will be padded with spaces. Lines longer than 80 bytes will be truncated. The card reader DLP implementation will convert the ASCII to EBCDIC when the host reads from the card reader.
Punched output is stored as 80-byte blank-padded ASCII lines delimited by a singled ASCII line-feed character.
The generate.ksh script will generate the coldstart configuration carddeck in this directory as carddecks/coldstart.crd
configs Holds simulator configuration files. These files describe the channel, memory and processor configurations for the virtual system. The generate.ksh script will generate two files in this directory; configs/coldstart.vsim to COLDSTART the virtual system and configs/haltload.vsim to HALT/LOAD the virtual system.
diskpacks Holds images of all the disk and pack devices used by the virtual system.
lib Holds the DLP shared objects and bootstrap code.
magtapes Holds magnetic tape image files (in SIMH format).
printers Holds printer output. Printer output is stored as 132-byte ASCII blank-padded lines separated by a single ASCII line-feed character. Skip to top of page carriage control is stored as an ASCII form-feed character. Double spaced output is represented by two consecutive ASCII line-feed characters.

Then select the host type (v380 was selected in this instance).

If the default location is acceptable, press enter here. Otherwise, enter the preferred location for the virtual server.

Now unique TCP ports must be selected for the OCS device, for the HUB simulator and for the B974 simulator (if selected). Make sure that the specified ports aren't already in use on the host system. You may use the netstat -an | grep 3737 (replace 3737 with the selected port) to see if the host port is in use. The OCS defaults to channel 37 and the hub/telcom-DLP channel is 55, so using NN37 and NN55 where the common NN ranges from 11 to 640 is a best practice.

After the TCP port for the OCS is selected, the type of data communcations subsystem must be selected. You may select none, telcom or b974. If telcom is selected, a telcom-dlp will be included in system configuration and the appropriate pre-configured MCP coldstart tape will be mounted on channel 6, unit 0; if b974 is selected, an HC-2 (ISC) DLP will be included, the ISC Hub daemon will be configured to start and the b974 daemon will be configured to start.

The Telcom-DLP and B974 simulator listen on a TCP port for incoming connections from stations (e.g. the t27 emulator or the vrje utility). The port number that the Telcom-DLP/B974 for this virtual server listens on is specified here. V-Series software numbers the DCP's from 0 to 9, so a port number selection such as 9749 for DCP #9 and 9740 for DCP #0 is a best practice, where the '974' is chosen to be unique to each virtual server. netstat can be used to check for duplicate port numbers.

Coldstarting the virtual server

A COLDSTART is required to initialize the V-series host. This creates the initial disk directory, loads the operating system image from the COLDSTART tape to the disk and reads and processes the configuration card deck. The COLDSTART procedure will ask the operator for the current date and time during the coldstart process.

A short tutorial on the t27 emulator may be found here.

After ensuring that the T27 fonts are available (as per above), execute the coldstart process using the following command from a terminal window:

$ $HOME/vsim/sharedtest/bin/startup.ksh coldstart
         ****   V-Series Simulator coldstart    ****

vsim> 

This will result in two new windows being created. The first window titled OCS 37/0 is the Operator Control Station (and HALT/LOAD SPO). The second window, titled Station #0000 is the first CANDE station attached to the B974 DCP.

The OCS terminal window will display the coldstart screen:

Fill in the Source Information section of the screen. The coldstart tape has been pre-mounted on channel 6 unit 0 and the name of the MCP on the coldstart tape is MCPVS. Press the HOME key on the keyboard and press the F12 key (or keypad ENTER) to transmit the form to the host.

Once the coldstart procedure has loaded to the MCP from the tape to the disk, it will BOJ Coldstart and process the configuration card deck. After processing the configuration carddeck, the system will ask the operator to enter the time and date:

Enter the date as 06252011 followed by the F12 key. Make sure the cursor starts in the HOME position when entering the date and time values. Enter the time next.

The Coldstart procedure will go to end of job (EOJ).

The system has completed the coldstart procedure and is ready for use. Login by typing:

LI SYSTEM/OPERATOR

at the home position, followed by the F12 (transmit) function key.

Now, copy the remaining contents of the coldstart tape to the disk:

RY 6/0
COPY & SET (COMPARE) = FROM CANSAL(TAPE) TO DISK(SUBSYSTEM=2)

Until I update the CANSAL tape with the patched CANUTL utility, issue the following patch:

PATCH CANUTL X01 14315 1 UN 2

This patch updates the FIB for the output file to specify EBCDIC format when punching cards, rather than BINARY format. This appears to be a bug in CANUTL that, since the plant retired its last punch, was never encountered until now.

Labelling the Diskpacks

RY 1/0

Wait for DISPKV to EOJ.

Convert to family type 3 from type 1.

ALTER NEW PACK 4/11 NAME HOME SERIAL 411411 OWNER SYS RESTRICTED BASE

enter OK when prompted. Same for resource pack:

ALTER NEW PACK 14/12 NAME WORK SERIAL 141200 OWNER SYS RESOURCE BASE

enter OK when prompted. Now convert both packs to version 4 and make them ready.

ALTER PACK 4/11 VERSION 4
ALTER PACK 14/12 VERSION 4
RY 14/12,4/11

Adding Users to the System

Execute USERHO to create the USERFL and add CANDE users.

Using a native text editor, create a file in the virtual server carddecks directory named carddecks/userho.crd with the following content:

?LI SYSTEM/OPERATOR
?EX USERHO
?DATA USER
$LST1
CLEAR USERFILE;
FUNCTION SECTION;
ADD ALLFUNC DIRECTIO LIBMAINT CTLD CANDECONTROLLER LEVEL 9;
ADD SOMEFUNC CTLD LEVEL 7;
ACCESSCODES SECTION;
ADD UC 8181;
    PW FRED;
    DEFAULT 123456;
    UN Frederick;
    PRIV;
    FUNCTION ALLFUNC;
ADD UC 8182;
    PW SAM;
    DEFAULT 123456;
    UN Samuel;
    FUNCTION ALLFUNC;
ADD UC 8183;
    PW PAM;
    DEFAULT 123456;
    UN Pamela;
    FUNCTION SOMEFUNC;
?END

Now from the terminal window where the 'startup.ksh' script was executed, press return until the vsim> prompt is visible and enter the following command to associate the file carddecks/userho.crd with the card reader on Channel 1 Unit 0 (1/0).

vsim>  control 1/0 load carddecks/userho.crd

Then, on the OCS window, transmit:

RY 1/0

This will add three users to the system userfile that can be used with the CANDE timesharing system. If COPY is in the mix and USERHO complains about NULL MIX REQUIRED, DS copy and try the above two steps again (there's a bad copy statement at the end of carddecks/coldstart.crd).

After USERHO has gone to EOJ, log back into the OCS using:

LI SYSTEM/OPERATOR

Now transmit the following to Halt/Load (AKA Reboot) the virtual system:

HLOK

Once the Halt/load operation completes log back in:

LI SYSTEM/OPERATOR

Starting CANDE (Timesharing)

Then enable the data communications processor interface:

SO DCP

When B974LD goes to EOJ, start the CANDE MCS:

EX CANMCS

Switch to the T27 window for Station #0000 and transmit the following:

LOGON 8181 FRED

Then depress the HOME key and enter the following to connect to CANDE:

*CONNECT CANDE

To exit the CANDE subsystem, transmit the BYE command. To log out of CANDE, enter the LOGOFF command after exiting CANDE.

To shutdown the system, first find the MIX number for CANMCS and transmit the following command (replace 2 with the correct MIX #):

2SM SHUTDOWN FAST

Wait for CANMCS to EOJ, then transmit:

HL DOWN

On the terminal window where the startup.ksh command was executed, wait for the the processor to stop and press enter until the vsim> prompt appears then enter quit.

[1/0112]D00038:034448:  HBR BASE1.+34448.0.UN 
Processor #1 stopped at D00038:034448 for Halt Branch
   
vsim> quit

And here's the SPOLOG for an example installation process when the TELCOM DLP configuration is selected in generate.ksh.

To load the COBOL compiler, or DMS distribution, select the appropriate tape images from the magtapes subdirectory and mount it on an available tape drive

vsim> control 6/0 load magtapes/cobol.tap

Then, from the OCS, ready the unit (RY 6/0) and copy the content to disk (COPY = FROM XXX(TAPE) TO DISK), wher XXX is the tape label.

Halt/Load

Once the system has been shutdown (HL DOWN) after a coldstart procedure, the system should be started using the haltload (which is the default if not specified) option of the startup.ksh script:

$HOME/vsim/sharedtest/bin/startup.ksh haltload
