Replacing a Services Processing Card on the SRX3600 Services Gateway

SPCs are installed in the services gateway in slots labeled CFM1-CFM12. Before you replace an SPC, you must power off the services gateway.

Note: For the services gateway to meet NEBS and ETSI standards, it must not have any two SPCs installed side by side in the CFM slots in the front of the chassis (CFM slots 1 through 6). You can install SPCs side by side in the CFM slots in the rear of the chassis (CFM slots 7 through 12). See SRX3600 Services Gateway NEBS and ETSI Compliance for more information.

To replace an SPC:

  1. Place an electrostatic bag or antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface.
  2. Attach an 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 SRX3600 Services Gateway.
  3. If you have not already done so, power off the services gateway by pressing the Power button on the front panel of the Switch Fabric Board (SFB) for three to five seconds.

    The PWR LED blinks to show you that the services gateway is shutting down. Wait for the services gateway to shut down before proceeding.

  4. Loosen the captive screws at each end of the SPC faceplate.
  5. Grasp the SPC by its handle and slide it halfway out of the chassis.
  6. Place one hand underneath the SPC to support it and slide it completely out of the chassis.

    Caution: SPCs can become very warm during operation. Avoid contact with the heat sink on top of the card when removing it to prevent personal injury.

  7. Place the SPC on the antistatic mat.

  8. Slide the replacement SPC into the slot until you feel resistance, and then press the SPC's faceplate until it engages the connectors.
  9. Tighten the captive screws on the left and right of the SPC faceplate.

  10. Power on the services gateway, as described in Powering On the SRX3600 Services Gateway. The OK/FAIL LED on the SPC faceplate should blink green, then light steadily.

    Note: If the OK/FAIL LED is red, remove and reinstall the SPC. If the OK/FAIL LED remains red, the SPC is not functioning properly. Contact your customer support representative.

    Warning: Never lift the services gateway using the handles on the front panels of the SPCs or other CFM cards. The handles might come off, causing the chassis to drop and inflicting possible grave injury.
