DSM 32 on bus 7 DSM 32 on bus 7 cimex1 (TechnicalUser) (OP) 17 Nov 04 07:35 I want to use a DSM 32 on bus 7, because I have only DSM 32 modulesI know that a DSM 32 uses 2 DS30 channels (bus types), but I want to know if this would make it possible to still use half of the DN'sAnybody tried this or would it be possible ? RE: DSM 32 on bus 7 acewarlock (TechnicalUser) 17 Nov 04 10:29 If your setup as a 3/5 split than the answer is no, if your a 2/6 then the answer is yes. RE: DSM 32 on bus 7 aragon (Instructor) 18 Nov 04 15:45 You can only use bus 7 for DSM32+ modules on post 3.0 SW.2/6 split is required and the BCM must be in full double density mode. RE: DSM 32 on bus 7 cimex1 (TechnicalUser) (OP) 24 Nov 04 07:33 I am using the 2/6 split but I'm running BCM 2.5 software on BCM 2.0 hardware. The DSM32+ module can only be used for BCM 3.0 and higher.Has anybody tried to use the DSM32 on bus 7 ? RE: DSM 32 on bus 7 aragon (Instructor) 25 Nov 04 14:56 If you are using BCM 2.5 software the DSM32 cannot go on bus 7 it will try to occupy bus 8 as well and bus 8 is reserved for the DDM.DSM32+ is backwards compatible to 2.5 through the correct usage of the dip switches.You will have to put a DSM 16 on this BCM.Configuring a BCM for full double density mode disables Companion support completely.I assume you have no way to intall the DSM32 on bus 6?Bus 6 is supported for your application. RE: DSM 32 on bus 7 cimex1 (TechnicalUser) (OP) 26 Nov 04 04:23 No, I can't use bus 6, that is occupied with a DTM for E1. And having already bus2/3/4/5 filled for DSM32 modules.Furthermore I don't have the budget for an extra DSM16, I have 2 DSM32's available from another BCM system.So if I do choose to install DSM32 on bus 7, that will shutdown DDM completely having no more companion support ?And what are the conseqeuences of that...since I don't use any companion related phones and will not be using them in the future. RE: DSM 32 on bus 7 acewarlock (TechnicalUser) 26 Nov 04 12:06 Why don't you put it in and see if it works.
