Locating the Serial Number on a JA2500 Junos Space Appliance or Component

 

If you are returning a JA2500 Junos Space Appliance or hardware component to Juniper Networks for repair or replacement, you need to provide the serial number of the appliance or component to the Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center (JTAC) when you contact them to obtain Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number. If the JA2500 appliance is operational and you can access the Junos Space CLI, you can list serial number of the appliance using a shell command. If you do not have access to the Junos Space CLI, you can find the serial number on the ID label present on the physical appliance or component.

Note

To find the serial number on the physical appliance component, you need to remove the component from the appliance chassis, for which you must have the required parts and tools available. See Installing and Removing JA2500 Junos Space Appliance Hardware Components for more information.

Locating the Serial Number ID Labels on FRUs in the JA2500 Appliance

The cooling fans, hard disks, and power supply modules installed in the JA2500 appliance are field-replaceable units (FRUs). For each of these FRUs, you must remove the FRU from the appliance chassis to see the serial number ID label of the FRU.

  • AC Power Supply Module—The serial number ID label is on the top of the AC power supply module.

  • Cooling Fan—There is no serial number on the cooling fan; use the appliance serial number instead.

  • DC Power Supply Module—The serial number ID label is on the top of the DC power supply module.

  • Hard Disks—The serial number ID label is on the top of the hard disk.
