Installing the SRX550 Services Gateway in a Rack

You can front-mount the SRX550 Services Gateway in a rack. Many types of racks are acceptable, including four-post (telco) racks, enclosed cabinets, and open-frame racks.

Note: If you are installing multiple devices in one rack, install the lowest one first and proceed upward in the rack.

To install the services gateway in a rack:

  1. Position a mounting bracket on each side of the chassis.
  2. Use a Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2 to install the screws that secure the mounting brackets to the chassis. Use either the front mount position, as shown in Figure 13, or the center mount position as shown in Figure 14.

  5. Have a second person install a mounting screw into each of the two aligned holes. Use a Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2 to tighten the screws.
  6. Install the second screw in each mounting bracket.
