Installing the SRX3400 Services Gateway in a Rack or Cabinet Using a Mechanical Lift

  1. Ensure the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building. Ensure that the installation site allows adequate clearance for both airflow and maintenance. For details, see Site Preparation Checklist for the SRX3400 Services Gateway.
  2. Load the services gateway onto the lift, making sure it rests securely on the lift platform (see Figure 25).

  3. Using the lift, position the services gateway in the rack:
    • For two-post rack mounting, align the bottom hole in each mounting bracket with a hole in each rack rail.
    • For four-post rack or cabinet mounting, position the services gateway so that the bottom rear edge of the chassis rests on the support shelf you installed earlier, as described in Installing the Mounting Hardware for the SRX3400 Services Gateway.
  4. Install a mounting screw into each of the two aligned holes, as shown in Figure 26 (two-post rack) or Figure 27 (four-post rack). Use a number-2 Phillips screwdriver to tighten the screws.

  5. Install the remaining screws in each mounting bracket.
  6. Move the lift away from the rack.
  7. Visually inspect the alignment of the services gateway. If the services gateway is installed properly in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack should be aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side and the services gateway should be level.
