Installing an SRX Clustering Module in the SRX3600 Services Gateway

You install the SRX Clustering Module (SCM) in the RE1 slot on the rear panel of the services gateway. To install the SCM:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  3. Loosen the captive screws at each end of the blank faceplate over the RE1 slot and remove the faceplate.
  4. Place the SCM on an antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag and place it on the bag.
  5. Press both of the ejector handles on the SCM faceplate outward to release them.
  6. Orient the SCM so that its faceplate faces you. Slide the SCM all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance. See Figure 35.
