NEW Hard Disk if possible.

Get ST340014A 40GB 7200 ATA/100 (Desktop Type)
or use Laptop Type MHW2060AT 40GB IDE with corresponding Compact Flash (CF) tray.

Use powered USB to SATA/IDE Combo Adapter Unit to plug in to laptop and hard disk

Go to Windows 7 computer management/disk management
Initialise the disk, then 'new simple volume'
No need to assign a drive letter.

Perform a quick format (NTFS or FAT) but then use
HP USB Disk Formatter to format the disk fully.

Open Hard Drive Image tool
Image to USB (Advanced)/Next
Directory - find the Folder V3.0_HDCF_Boot_Image and select
(the boot image needs to be downloaded and unzipped)
Click on 'select device' tab on hard drive image tool.

After a few minutes the 'OK' button will show and you can click on it.
Then at the main window click 'Cancel' to finish this part.

On the windows tray (near the clock) remove the 'bridge' safely.

Remove the disk and fit to a Hipath MO/HDD Tray ready for installing in a Hipath
Fitting is a reversal of removing - take photos if in any doubt beforehand.
You will need a Torx and Philips Screwdriver for to fit the HDD.

Fit Tray in Hipath with RTM on back and one processor in bottom.
Fit bypass SIM card in processor and LAN cable to your laptop from service or Atlantic Port
Fit RS232/V24 9 way 'D' type cable from Service to laptop also for Hyperterminal
Use or similar on laptop.
Power up Hipath.
Wait for 'dash dot' on processor

On dash dot logon with Comwin

Also log on with Hyperterminal or similar terminal program 9 way connector to Service port on bottom processor.
Use 38400 8N1NN settings

On reload log on with Comwin
Get Hardware ID of SIM Card and get the relevant Codeword for it
It is date dependent so it might be out of date and you have to get an up to date one.
Run in rest of ADS and all of SWU
(Edit the REGEN samtxt file to remove M1 1 and the M2 1 to make it easier)
Not all AMO's need to go back in - more information can be provided on this.

Now allow Unixware7 to install:
Also log on with Hyperterminal or similar terminal program 9 way connector to Service port on bottom processor.
Use 38400 8N1NN settings
'Activation of ' (First) Installation' was successful.

If you have problems with Unix install try RESTART; in Comwin or try install again via the Unix/Hyperterminal menu.

I find that if I format the drive fully before setup it works.
If it does not work also try a different MO/HDD tray as it sometimes helps.

After Unix finished install go back to Comwin
You should get 'A' on the processor

Wait a few minutes for it to stabilize


Log on to UW7 using Virtual XP or a prepared for V3 Win 7 PC

Open browser
Do the 'client preparation' if not already done.



On main laptop
Open Filezilla FTP program or similar
Navigate to engr/newpassword
Copy the latest dot tar file to /var/hf on the HiPath using the FTP program
On V3 it is ADP-V3.0_R5.0.34.tar
When transfer of tar file finished (approx 20 mins) exit the FTP program.

On Comwin
Open connection to HiPath
Click on file transfer (6th icon from left hand side)
Copy latest loadware to HiPath using the FJAM file transfer.
On V3 it is Spec_LW-V30-R8_4_4
Make sure the Loadware file is unzipped...
Drag the APSC folder from your loadware to the :PDS: APSC folder and overwrite it.
Drag the APSP folder from your loadware to the :PDS: APSP folder and overwrite it.
(yes to all/ root/hicom)
When loadware transfers are finished disconnect the file transfer/HiPath

On Comwin
Add in all your usernames.

Add in the passwords for each new username.
You can change the root/hicom password here as well if required.

On Browser:
Sofware Management/Software Transfer 2
On Left Hand Side open up RHF
Copy the V3.0 R8.4.27 patch packet to the HiPath

The Patch Packet should be unzipped when downloaded to the below directory structure.
(Path on your PC should be as follows:

Go to Software Management/Software Activation
New Activation
Select 'immediately' and 'notification of success/failure via maintenance alarm'
Click 'activate immediately'
27 patches will be installed until you see
(This screen will no longer be updated
because the activation is completed.)
Why it cannot be 'rolled up' to one patch I don't know...

Go to Software Management/Software Activation
Unix Hotfix Activation
Activate the previously transferred tar file
On occasion it will fail due to
Can not execute AMO DISP-DTSM:A1,HD;
If that happens go to Comwin
Go back and activate Unix hot fix again

If it fails again try a soft restart by typing in Capitals in Comwin
Then wait until Unix fully loads up again (Watch Hyperterminal)
Go back and activate hotfix again.

After the Unix update is installed you will have to wait until the Popup is clear.
It should say
Update is running. Be aware of your actions.

Next go to System Management/HiPath 4000 Administration
Click on 'search'
Click on 'object'
Fill in system number (REG-ANUM;)
Click web admin
Click Configuration Management
Click Customer Data Tab - fill in Customer Name
In Contract fill in Contract Number
11 222222 33333
In Configuration Management
Change Country to your prefix
Area Code
Get node code from DIS-ZAND:ALLDATA;
if not already correct
Click on save

Then go to the 'configuration management' tab
and click on 'upload'
This will enable you to use the configuration management
(It does UPLO2 to the Unixware from the RMX)

Go to Access Management/Account Management
Add a new user and password
Then go back to Access Management and Access Right Configuration
Give this new user all the access from the right hand side
(Drag over each item)

You now have another user instead of the default in case it gets locked out.

Go to Base Administration
Application Control
Add in 2 at a time what is required for the system.
By default you should add in
Dynamic Traffic Monitoring
Test Simulation Key Activity
Configuration Management
Hardware and Symptom Diagnosis
Real Time Diagnosis System

When finished 'refresh' the main page to show the changes

After that in Software Management you can add a backup schedule.
Ensure that any backup schedule you put in does not conflict with the CRON schedules in the RMX.

Then to finish add in the Customer LAN IP address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, Firewall entries and any NTP clock
in Base Administration/Unix Base Administration.

Sequence of loading of Hipath is Area E then Area J then MO/Compact Flash Card
To backup to Area J
Deactivate Area J on the Hard Disk
Do a backup

Add in CRON commands to backup automatically for example:

Finally shutting down.
Power down
bring to customer site, change out Hard Disk tray and power up.
Log on to Comwin and change the CODEW to the customers one.

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

Thanks Sbcsu,May I have"ADD-CODEW: SIM BYPASS CODEWORD" for H4K V5bigsmile

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

Hi Kevin,
What is your Bypass SIM number ?
If you have that - you can see it on loading up via Hyperterminal
or you can see it on the HiPath by DIS-CODEW
You can then get the corresponding CODEWORD from Unify/Siemens

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

hello sbcsu:

I just want to know, if I am in the lab without a SIM card, how to write the user's data.
BTW Can provide the relevant software download link:
1)Hard Drive Image tool

Thank you

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

Hi Kevin,
You need a valid SIM card to run in the SWU part of the database.
This can be a customer SIM or a 'bypass' SIM card, with a codeword.
You could get everything else done before going to site, take a final regen from customer system and shut it down.
Then use their SIM to get the 'new' system going.
You can download the Hard Drive Image Tool from SEBA
I can put it online if you prefer, however the HDCF Boot Image is too large for me
to 'post' and having the Image Tool without the Boot Image does not make sense.
It should be easy enough to organise access to SEBA if you are making hard disks ?

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

sad I do not have access right to SEBA, I use HD CLONE to copy disk without codeword at now,but I have no by pass SIM card,and if I use any customer SIM card add codew date late than the customer I want input ADS data,I don't can add-codew any more, so it take me long time at customer site to input REGEN file.

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

Hi Kevin,
You need to talk with your employer to get access to SEBA to download software and get at least one bypass SIM.
Otherwise you can not do the job....

As I said even if you have the software you can not setup a new system/upgrade without the SIM Card for the SWU

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

Hello sbcsu

I'm starting on this Unify/Siemens world. First of all, I'm sorry for picking up this topic...if you want I can start a new one.

I bought an Hipath 4000 v2 for labs and testing but I can't access either assistant (using engr or rsta) or via Comwin (using root) with the default passwords.
Maybe you can help me. Do I have any chance to recover the passwords for engr, rsta or root?
If not, can I use this procedure for restore the HD, but for V2.0? I have access to SEBA and I have all the necessary files you mention here. Aditionally, the processor has a SIM card, so I suppose the SIM card has the necessary licenses to run a new V2, right?

Thanks in advance!

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

Personally I would wipe the disk and start again, it will give you more insight as to how it all works.

Yes the above procedure would work for V2 IDE Hard Disk, if it is a V2 SCSI Hard Disk it is different.

Go to the CODEW tool and download the codewords for your SIM card via SEBA or direct.

If it has the V2 CODEW or if it is a 'Bypass SIM' with a V2 Codeword then you are good to go.
Setup a new thread if any problems.

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

Thank you for your fast response!

Where can I access CODEW tool? Is it the CLS in SEBA?

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

Get latest SIM Card Bypass Codew at Link
Or get to Codew tool via SEBA but it is the same destination

RE: Hard Disk setup of HiPath 4000 Version 3 Simplex

I haven't got access to that yet...I already requested it.

Meanwhile, that tool how does it work? I put the SIM card number there and it gives me the Codeword? Then I can know what versions are licensed in that SIM card?
