    C) INSTALLING THE NDP 250/500 TRACK SOFTWARE

    E) RUNNING THE EXERCISER OR MAINTENANCE TEST ROUTINES

    For custom image configuration refer to:

    F) CUSTOM IMAGE CONFIGURATION

    A) INSTALLING WINDOWS NT/2000 WORKSTATION SOFTWARE

    Important notes to read before installing or configuring pre-installed Windows NT/2000 Workstation software:


    Make sure the Track Processor power setting is set to 220 volt before powering up the NDP 250/500 if the Track

    Processor is being powered on with the NDP 250/500.


    Do not install the NDP 250/500 NT PC boards until instructed to do so.

    ISA-TCP board (also referred to as ETCP board).

    PCI Image Interface Board (PCIII).

    Common Controller board (for Upstream Image with Archive Ready Rear only).


    Do not power down the NDP 250/500 without completing a shutdown of the Track Processor. Shutdown Windows NT/2000 by pressing the Ctrl, Alt and Del keys all at once. The Windows NT/2000 Security window is displayed. Select "Shutdown". Select "Shutdown" again. The screen will respond with an OK to power down.
    1) Install Windows NT/2000 Workstation and required Service Packs. Refer to the Windows NT/2000 installation manual for assistance:

    • Windows NT Workstation version 4.0

    • Windows NT Workstation 4.0 Service Pack 4

    OR

    • Windows 2000 version 5.0

    For Upstream Image systems format a second hard drive using NTFS for the file system that will be storing the images.


    2) Set up a new user account:

    Windows NT - Start\Programs\Administrative Tools \User manager


    Windows 2000 – Start\Settings\Control Panel\Users And Passwords

    IMPORTANT: For Upstream Image systems the user must be given Administrator Rights, or Power User Rights with the additional right to Load and unload device drivers.

    B) CUSTOMIZING WINDOWS NT/2000 AND TRACK INSTALLATION PREPARATION

    Prepare the ISA-TCP board for installation.

    Locate the interrupt jumper and port I/O base address switch.

    The factory will ship the ISA-TCP with default settings.
    The current factory defaults for Track PCs of type PC Model VLI8 (450Mhz) are:

    Interrupt = 11 (jumper I11 in place)

    Port I/O Base = 0x240 (switches settings 6=OPEN, 3=OPEN, and all the rest of the switches=CLOSED).
    NOTE 1: Earlier model AQUANTA style Track PCs used Interrupt 15 (jumper I15 in place) and Port I/O Base=0x200 for the factory default setting.
    NOTE 2: There are no jumpers or switches for setting memory mapped NV RAM addresses. This setting is soft controllable and is not controlled by ISA-TCP. The default setting for memory mapped NV RAM is 0xD0000-0xDFFFF.

    Prepare the Common Controller board for installation

    This is for Upstream Image systems with Archive Ready Rear only and if the Common Controller board is located in Track PC. If the Common Controller board is located in Image gate, jumpers and switches do not exist.

    Locate the interrupt jumper and port I/O base address switch SW1.

    The factory will ship the Common Controller with default settings.
    The current factory defaults for Track PCs of type PC Model VLI8 (450Mhz) are:

    Interrupt = 5 (jumper I5 in place)

    Port I/O Base = 0x300 (SW1 1-7 = CLOSED, SW1 8 = OPEN).
    NOTE: It is recommended that upgrades not be performed on PC Model VL8 (350Mhz). The PC should be replaced with the VLI8 (450Mhz). If a Track PC of type PC Model VL8 (350Mhz) is used for an upgrade, it will be necessary to either set the Common Controller board to use interrupt 7, since this model PC has an ISA Sound card which uses interrupt 5, or, to disable the audio driver and remove the sound card from the PC. If interrupt 7 is used it may not be possible to use a parallel port printer since interrupt 7 is also used for the parallel port.


    Check board settings and resolve PC resource conflicts

    Windows NT: Using Start\Programs\Administrative Tools\Windows NT Diagnostics,

    make sure that the factory default settings for the ISA-TCP and Common Controller (if Upstream Image fitted) do not conflict with any other installed devices. Available interrupts and port I/O addresses can be reviewed by selecting "IRQ/PORT STATUS". Available memory can be reviewed by selecting "DMA/MEMORY".
    Windows 2000: Using Start\Settings\Control Panel\System, select Hardware tab, Device Manager, Select view drop down menu, Resources by type,

    make sure that the factory default settings for the ISA-TCP and Common Controller (if Upstream Image fitted) do not conflict with any other installed devices. . Available interrupts can be reviewed by selecting "Interrrupt request (IRQ)". Available port I/O addresses can be reviewed by selecting "input/output (IO)”. Available memory can be reviewed by selecting "Memory".


    If an interrupt conflict exists, identify an unused interrupt and set the appropriate jumper on the ISA-TCP board (or Common Controller) to the available interrupt.


    Note that interrupts 1,2,8,and 13 are not available selections for the ISA-TCP or Common Controller. Interrupts 1 and 2 should not be used. If 8 or 13 are the only available interrupts, swap interrupts with a reconfigurable peripheral (i.e. network interface card, SCSI host adapter) as needed to free an ISA-TCP or Common Controller selectable

    interrupt.


    Avoid using interrupts 9 and 12 if possible. Interrupt 9 is known to conflict with VGA controllers in some systems that do not show 9 as used in the “available interrupts and port I/O addresses” displays. Interrupt 12 is often used for the mouse and may not show as used in the “available interrupts and port I/O addresses” displays if no mouse is connected.
    If an ISA-TCP port I/O conflict exists, use the following information to alter the switch settings to an available range.
    ISA-TCP Port I/O Switch Settings

    Switches correspond to the 7 most significant bits of a 12 bit (A0-A11) ISA I/O address as shown in the following table:


    Switch SW8 SW7 SW6 SW5 SW4 SW3 SW2 SW1
    Bit A11 A10 A9 A8 A7 A6 A5 RESV
    To match a desired I/O address, each switch (address

    bit) is set to 0=Open(OFF) and 1=Closed(ON). Switch

    settings and addresses follow:
    Switches S1-8 S1-7 S1-6 S1-5 S1-4 S1-3 S1-2 S1-1

    0x3E0-0x3FF 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 1


    If a memory conflict exists, make note of an available 64K range (e.g 0xD0000-DFFFF) to be configured during Software Installation.


    Exit Windows NT/2000 Diagnostics Tools.
    Using the "Display Utility" within "Control Panel", set the monitor display settings to:
    Color Palette = 65536 colors

    Font Size=Small Fonts

    Desk Top Area=800x600

    Refresh Frequency=60


    Customize the start bar at bottom of the desktop. Right mouse clicking the bar will bring up a menu. Select properties. "Always on top" and "Autohide" should be set to unchecked.
    Shutdown Windows NT/2000 and power off the Track Processor when prompted by Windows NT/2000 that it is OK to power off.

    Install the NDP 250/500 PC Boards


    Install the ISA-TCP board and, the Common Controller if fitted, in an available full length ISA slot with the jumpers and switches set per the above steps.
    Install the PCIII board in an available PCI slot. There are no configuration settings for the PCIII.
    NOTE: In PCs of type PC Model VLI8 (450Mhz) the PCIII must NOT be installed in PCI Slot 3 (the slot furthest from the motherboard)

    C) INSTALLING THE NDP 250/500 TRACK SOFTWARE

    Before software installation make a note of final interrupts, ISA I/O address and 64k memory space for input as software setup parameters later.


    If Upstream Image is fitted, also note the following information which is needed to complete the installation.

    Customer's requirement for Front Camera Resolution (200, 240, or 250 dpi)

    Compressor types for Front1, Front2, and Front Snippet images.

    Is Unisys ICR-CAR present?


    If the Upstream Image optional Archive Ready Rear camera module is fitted, also note:

    Rear Camera Resolution (200 or 240dpi. as marked on the camera).

    Compressor types for Rear1 and Rear2 images.

    1) Power up the Track Processor and log on.


    2)IMPORTANT! If Upstream Image is fitted and any of the image capture programs are running (from a previous install) you must close the image capture programs manually (for upgrade) by clicking on their icons and selecting the Close item on the dropdown menu.
    3) Put CDROM in drive.
    4) The NDP 250/500 NT Setup window is displayed. The release notes may be viewed by clicking on “Release Notes” in the Welcome dialog. Click “Next” to proceed with the setup.
    5) The “Choose Destination Location” dialog is displayed. The default directory is C:\NDP500\ .

    Press “OK" to install to the default directory or press “Browse” to change the directory selection.

    Press “OK" to continue installation.
    6) The “Select Components” dialog is displayed.

    “NDP500 Core Software (required)” is checked.

    Check or uncheck “Upstream Image Software” as required.

    Click “Next” to proceed with the setup.


    7) The setup program will load files from the CDROM.
    8) If Upstream Image is fitted the “Upstream Image Software” dialog is displayed. Press “Reconfigure” to update existing image configuration information or press “Next” to continue installation. If “Reconfigure” is chosen setup will lead you through the image configuration dialogs. Setup has default selections for all options. For custom configuration additional information is provided in section F.

    If you upgrade, the original installation will be saved in a backup directory (C:\DPIMAGE\BACKUP). Upgrading will install the latest executables and drivers,and the latest *.INI files. If you have customized any settings in the .INI files, you can restore those settings after the upgrade is complete.

    Remember your original *.INI files have been saved in the C:\DPIMAGE\BACKUP directory. Hardware configuration settings, calibration tables, and adaptive threshold tables are not modified during an upgrade.

    Shut Down Windows NT/2000 and Reboot the PC.


    If this is a new installation with Upstream Image, you must calibrate the Upstream cameras (front and optional rear) before running the Exerciser or any other application. Calibration is performed using the Maintenance and Test Routines utility, see section E.

    E) SETUP TRACK CONFIGURATION AND REGISTERING THE ISA-TCP

    BOARD AND DRIVER WITH WINDOWS NT/2000




    Setting Up the Track Configuration.

    For both NDP250 and NDP500 the NT Track Software expects the configuration file to be called DP500CON.INI. This file contains a parameter called MachineType which is set to DP250 or DP500.


    1) Start up the NDP Track Configuration Utility under Start/CAPI System/CSE Utilities/NDP Track Configuration Utility.
    2) From the Configuration Utility main menu display do the following:

    • Select “Modify Configuration File”.

    • Select file = DP500CON.INI under the CONFIG directory.

    • Modify the configuration to match your actual machine configuration.

    • Select “Save configuration file” option. Prior to the save operation a copy of the configuration file DP500CON.INI is saved as DP500CON.SAV.

    NOTES:


    1. If converting from a CTOS track processor then refer to dp500config.sys CTOS file for track configuration settings.

    2. The Archive Ready Rear option for Upstream Image cannot coexist with a conventional downstream ICM. The Configuration Utility will display a warning message and not accept this configuration.

    WARNING: An incorrect DP500CON.INI may cause erratic system behavior.



    REGISTERING THE ISA-TCP BOARD AND DRIVER WITH WINDOWS NT

    1) From the Configuration Utility main menu select the "Configure TCP Device Driver" button.

    2) The default factory hardware settings are shown.

    Alter the setting as needed to the settings recorded in Section B - step 15 above. Any altered setting must match the earlier changes made to jumper and switch on the ISA-TCP board.

    3) Select "OK" to register the ISA-TCP settings.

    2) Exit the NDP Track Configuration Utility.

    3) Shutdown Windows NT/2000 by pressing the Ctrl , Alt and Del keys all at once. The Windows NT/2000 Security window is displayed. Select "Shutdown". Select

    "Shutdown and Restart".



    E) UPSTREAM IMAGE WITH MICROSOFT WINDOWS 2000

    After installing and starting CAPI with UIM 5.0.2 or greater, a driver error dialog box may appear with the following message:

    "IMAGE DRIVER DID NOT LOAD!!! PLEASE CHECK HARDWARE CONFIGURATION"
    Perform the following steps to fix this condition:
    1) Stop the Image Capture software (click the X in the upper right corner of the Capture, MTR, and Common Image Storage windows).
    2) Right-click on "My Computer" and choose Properties from the menu. Click on the "Hardware" tab and click on the "Device Manager" button.
    3) Under "Other Devices", click on the "+" sign to the left (if present). Right-click on "PCI Device" and select Properties.
    4) Click on the "Driver" tab and click on the "Update Driver" button. The Upgrade Device Driver Wizard will start. Click Next.
    5) Make sure "Search for a suitable driver..." is selected and click Next.
    6) On "Locate Driver files" screen make sure that no optional search location checkboxes are selected. Click Next to start the search. The ntimgdrv.inf file will be found.
    7) Click Next to install the driver. Click Finish.
    8) Shutdown Windows 2000 by pressing the Ctrl , Alt and Del keys all at once. The Windows 2000 Security window is displayed. Select "Shutdown". Select

    "Shutdown and Restart".



    F) RUNNING THE EXERCISER OR MAINTENANCE TEST ROUTINES

    1) The device driver DP500TCP.SYS and the NDP 250/500 Track Control are automatically started when the Track Processor is booted. They are auto started by a batch file that is contained in the "Startup" Window.

    If Upstream Image is fitted, the driver NTIMGDRV.SYS and imaging tasks NTIMGCAP.exe, NTIMGIDX.exe and NTIMGMTR.exe are also auto started.
    2) If Upstream Image has been installed for the first time it will be necessary to calibrate the camera(s), front, and rear if Archive Ready Rear is fitted. This is performed using the Maintenance Test Routines (MTR). Start MTR from Start/CAPI System/CSE Utilities/Maintenance Test Routines.
    3) Test the system using the Exerciser. Start the exerciser from Start/CAPI System/CSE Utilities/Track Exerciser.

    G) CUSTOM IMAGE CONFIGURATION

    The imaging setup dialogs will prompt for custom configuration information. The following sections will help you make the correct choices.


    STORAGE TASK CONFIGURATION

    The image storage utility requires information stored in the Registry database. During installation you are prompted for a response for the following.


    LOCAL OR NETWORK STORAGE.

    This prompt indicates whether image files are to be stored locally on disk or on a network drive. The default is to store on a network.

    DRIVELETTER.

    This value is the drive letter the image files are to be written. When writing image files to a network, this drive letter will be mapped to the StoragePathName. When writing to a local drive, this drive letter and the StoragePathName, are concatenated together. This forms the full path the image files are to be written to. DO NOT put any colons, :, in the Drive Letter.


    STORAGEPATHNAME.

    This value is the path where image files will be stored. DO NOT leave this value blank. Choose a correct storage path as described below.


    STORAGE PATHNAME FOR LOCAL DRIVES

    The directory will be created on the computer where images are to be stored. This is the base directory.


    When filling in this StoragePathName, precede the local path with a single backslash, \. DO NOT put any backslashes at the end of the path.
    Example.

    The directory is images.


    The StoragePathName is \images

    The NetworkStorage must be set to 0.


    STORAGE PATHNAME FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS NETWORKS

    The path must be the Computer Name where the images will be stored followed by the share name where the images will be stored.

    DO NOT put the Workgroup in the path.
    The share name MUST BE an existing share on the computer where images are to be stored.
    When filling in this StoragePathName, precede the Computer Name with a double backslash, \\. After the Computer Name but before the share, put a single backslash, \. DO NOT put any backslashes at the end of the path.
    Example.

    The Computer Name is IFS001.

    The share name is images.
    The StoragePathName is \\IFS001\images

    The NetworkStorage must be set to 1.

    STORAGE PATHNAME FOR NOVELL NETWARE NETWORKS

    The path must be the file server where the images will be stored, followed by the volume and the directory where the images will be stored. The file server name can be found many different ways.

    Essentially, it is the name assigned in the AUTOEXEC.NCF. The statement should be "file server name ".
    The volume MUST BE an existing volume on the file server where the images are to be stored.
    The directory MUST BE an existing directory on the file server where images are to be stored. This is the base directory.
    When filling in this StoragePathName, precede the file server with a double backslash, \\. After the file server but before the volume, put a single backslash, \. After the volume but before the directory, put a single backslash, \. DO NOT put any backslashes at the end of the path. Also, DO NOT put any colons, :, in the StoragePathName.
    Example.

    The file server name is IFS001.

    The volume name is VOL1.

    The directory is IMAGES.


    The StoragePathName is \\IFS001\VOL1\IMAGES

    The NetworkStorage must be set to 1.


    NETWORK CONFIGURATION (If storing images over a LAN):
    Install only ONE protocol - preferably NetBEUI or NWLINK IPX/SPX. NetBEUI has been found to perform the best. Do not install Netware Client or Gateway support. After NT installation is complete, upgrade to the latest NT service pack and Network Adapter drivers.
    If you have to have two NICs(Network Interface Card) in the ICS and the second NIC requires a different protocol from the one being used to talk to the IFS(Image File Server), tailor the bindings to only enable the required protocol on each NIC. For example, if you have NetBEUI configured on a 3C905 card going to the IFS, and IPX/SPX on an Etherlink III card, then make sure that the 3C905 card is only bound to NetBEUI, and the Etherlink III card is only bound to IPX/SPX.
    On the IFS, after installing NT and the latest NT service pack, under network setup, services, select the Server service and click on properties. Choose "Balanced" for best results.
    LAN Speed Test:

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

    With both ICS and IFS configured as described above, with the ICS system software running, the LAN connectivity and throughput in terms of maximum and average number of bytes written per second can be tested as follows:

    On the Image Storage task window, type L and press . This will perform a series of disk writes across the LAN and display the performance statistics on the Storage window.


    END OF CUSTOM CONFIGURATION
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    TROUBLESHOOTING

    The following is a worksheet to help identify interrupt and I/O base address conflicts. Instructions are below the worksheet.

    Network communication board

    Interrupt: _____________

    I/O Base Address: _____________


    Video board

    Interrupt: _____________

    I/O Base Address: _____________

    Memory Mapped Address: _____________


    With Windows NT/2000 there is a diagnostics tool which is of great use in identifying interrupts and addresses.
    Windows NT - Start\Programs\Administrative Tools\Windows NT Diagnostics
    Windows 2000 - Start\Settings\Control Panel\System, select Hardware tab, Device Manager,

    Select view drop down menu, Resources by type
    If this is not in this window, it can be added as a new program item in the window. The Command Line is WINMSD.EXE.
    Write down these interrupts and addresses in the space provided above and compare them to the actual card settings to look for conflicts, available or unused interrupt/address resources and opportunities to ‘shuffle’ boards to provide each board with its required resources.
    What we are trying to do is resolve any interrupt conflict or any I/O Base Address conflicts. It is a common problem for two or more boards in a PC to have conflicting interrupts or I/O Base addresses.
    Some of the more common conflicts in the ICS are the following:
    Plug and play (PnP) option cards cause conflicts because the PnP program does not reserve resources for non-PnP cards as a default. To get by this problem, disable PnP in CMOS setup and point PnP cards to free interrupts that do not conflict. Some PnP CMOS options include the ability to reserve each system interrupt to be available as ‘legacy ISA’ or ‘PCI/PnP’ available. If your ICS has this option, set all resources required by non-PnP cards to ‘legacy ISA’.
