Description

1

Front panel LEDs

Left side of the front chassis panel

Indicate the current status of the services gateway. See SRX550 Services Gateway Front Panel LEDs for detailed information about the front panel LEDs.

2

Serial Console Port

Left side of the front chassis panel

Connects a laptop to the services gateway for CLI management. The port uses an RJ-45 serial connection, is configured as data terminal equipment (DTE), and supports the RS-232 (EIA-232) standard.

3

USB Console Port

Left side of the front chassis panel

Connects a laptop to the services gateway for CLI management through a USB interface. The port accepts a Mini-B type USB cable plug. A USB cable with Mini-B and Type A USB plugs is supplied with the services gateway. To use the USB console port, you must download a USB driver to the management station from the Juniper Networks website.

4

AUX Port

Left side of the front chassis panel

Note: The Auxiliary port is not supported on the SRX550 Services Gateway.

5

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) outlet

Left side of the front chassis panel

While working on the services gateway, use the ESD outlet to plug in an ESD grounding strap to prevent your body from sending static charges to the services gateway, which will damage the device.

6

USB 0 and USB 1 ports

Left side of the front chassis panel

The services gateway has two USB ports, labeled USB 0 and USB 1, that accept a USB storage device. These USB ports accept USB flash drives with Type A plugs. When the USB drive is installed and configured, it automatically acts as the secondary boot device if the primary CompactFlash card fails on startup.

Note: You must install Junos OS on the USB storage device to use it as the secondary boot device. The services gateway supports the following USB devices:

  • Sandisk Micro Cruzer 2 GB to 32 GB
  • Lexar 2 GB
  • Juniper Networks 2 GB

Depending on the capacity of the USB drive, you can also configure it to receive core files generated during a failure.

7

Power button

Left side of the front chassis panel

Use the Power button to gracefully shut down the services gateway.

On a services gateway that has been previously shut down using the Power button, when the power button is pressed again the services gateway starts up.

Warning: The Power button does not shut off power to the power supplies or the midplane. You must remove the power cables or power cords to completely shut down the services gateway. The DC OK LED light on the power supply unit (PSU) changes from green to amber indicating that the software has stopped running. After the software has stopped running, you can safely remove any GPIMs or Mini-PIMs from the services gateway.

8

RESET CONFIG Button

Left side of the front chassis panel

Returns the services gateway to the rescue configuration or the factory default configuration. For more information, see Resetting the SRX550 Services Gateway.

6 fixed Gigabit Ethernet ports:

  • Port labeled 0/0
  • Port labeled 0/1
  • Port labeled 0/2
  • Port labeled 0/3
  • Port labeled 0/4
  • Port labeled 0/5

Provides link speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps.

Left side of the front chassis panel, lower edge

The Gigabit Ethernet ports have the following characteristics:

  • Use an RJ-45 connector.
  • Operate in full-duplex and half-duplex modes.
  • Support flow control.
  • Support autonegotiation.

The Gigabit Ethernet ports can:

  • Function as front-end network ports.
  • Provide LAN and WAN connectivity to hubs, switches, local servers, and workstations.
  • Forward incoming data packets to the services gateway.
  • Receive outgoing data packets from the services gateway.

The ports labeled 0/4 and 0/5 are automatically connected to each other when the services gateway is powered off. You can use this feature to bypass the device in the event of a power failure or a software not responding.

10

4 SFP Ethernet ports:

  • Port labeled 0/6
  • Port labeled 0/7
  • Port labeled 0/8
  • Port labeled 0/9

Provides link speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps.

Middle of the front chassis panel, lower edge

The SFP Ethernet ports have the following characteristics:

  • Operate in full-duplex and half-duplex modes.
  • Support flow control.
  • Support autonegotiation.

The SFP Ethernet ports can:

  • Function as front-end network ports.
  • Provide LAN and WAN connectivity to hubs, switches, local servers, and workstations.
  • Forward incoming data packets to the services gateway.
  • Receive outgoing data packets from the services gateway.

2 Mini-PIM slots numbered 1 and 2

Left side of the front chassis panel

Both slots support Mini-PIMs.

12

6 GPIM slots numbered 3 through 8. For specific GPIM/XPIM slots, see Figure 3

Front chassis panel

Note: SRX550 Services Gateway does not support hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs and XPIMs

13

Mounting brackets

Sides of chassis

Rack-mounting brackets attached when the services gateway is mounted on a rack.

The mounting brackets are used to attach the services gateway to a rack or cabinet.

Figure 3 shows how the slots on the front panel of the SRX550 Services Gateway are numbered.
