Removing a Gigabit-Backplane Physical Interface Module from the SRX Series Services Gateway

Before you begin, ensure that the services gateway is powered off.

Caution: Both the SRX550 and the SRX650 Services Gateways support hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs.

To remove a GPIM from the SRX Series Services Gateway:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage to the SRX Series Services Gateway.
  2. Push the OFFLINE button to turn the GPIM offline. After the STATUS LED light turns off, it is safe to remove the GPIM. See Figure 13 and Table 15 for a description of LED indications for hot-swappable GPIM components.

    STATUS LED

    The STATUS LED has the following indicator colors:

    • Green and steadily on indicates that the GPIM is functioning normally.
    • Yellow and steadily on indicates that the GPIM is starting up, running diagnostics, or going offline.
    • Red and steadily on indicates that the GPIM has failed.
    • Off indicates that the GPIM is not powered on, is offline, or is not configured.

    ONLINE/OFFLINE button

    Push button to turn the GPIM offline. After the STATUS LED light goes off, it is safe to remove the GPIM from the services gateway.

  3. Label the cables connected to the GPIM so that you can later reconnect each cable to the correct GPIM.
  4. Disconnect the cables from the GPIM.
  5. If necessary, arrange the cables to prevent them from dislodging or developing stress points.

    Note: If you are removing a double-high, double-wide GPIM such as the 24-Port Ethernet XPIM, you must reinstall the center GPIM slot bracket.

  6. Using a Phillips (+) screwdriver, loosen the captive screws on each side of the GPIM faceplate.
  7. Grasp the handles on each side of the GPIM faceplate, and slide the GPIM out of the services gateway.
  8. Place the GPIM in an electrostatic bag or on an antistatic mat.
  9. If you are not reinstalling a GPIM into an empty slot, install a blank GPIM faceplate over the empty slot to maintain proper airflow. If you are reinstalling another GPIM into the empty slot, see Installing a Gigabit-Backplane Physical Interface Module on the SRX Series Services Gateway.

    Note: When installing a blank GPIM faceplate, make sure that the padded side of the faceplate is facing up.
