    Attaching Mounting Brackets to a Junos Space JA1500 Appliance

    To install your physical appliance in a rack, you must attach mounting brackets to the appliance.

    Your JA1500 appliance is shipped with front ears, midpoint brackets, rear mounting rails, and mounting screws.

    The outer edges of the mounting brackets extend the width of the chassis to 19 in. (48.2 cm). The spacing of rails and adjacent racks must also allow for the clearances around the appliance and rack.

    The chassis and brackets are designed to allow front, middle, or rear mounting in a 19–inch rack.

    You need a Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2 to mount the brackets.

    To attach the mounting bracket to a physical appliance, follow these steps:

    1. Place the physical appliance on a flat, stable surface.
    2. Align the mounting brackets along the front, rear, or center of a side panel of the physical appliance chassis, depending on how you want to mount the appliance in a rack. For example, if you want to center-mount the appliance, align the mounting brackets along the center of the side panel.
    3. Align the bottom hole in the mounting bracket with a hole on the side panel on the appliance chassis.
    4. Insert one mounting screw (provided in the accessory box shipped with the appliance) into each of the two aligned holes. Using the Phillips screwdriver, tighten the screw to the chassis. Ensure that the other holes in the mounting bracket are aligned with the other holes in the side panel.
    5. Insert screws into the other holes in the mounting bracket aligned with the holes in the side panel and tighten the screws to the chassis using the Phillips screwdriver.
