Step 3: Install the Services Gateway

Because of the services gateway’s size and weight, you must use a mechanical lift to install the services gateway in the rack. Also, you must remove all components, as shown in Figure 4 and Figure 5, before installing the services gateway.

Before installing the services gateway, you must remove the following components:

To remove the components from the services gateway:

  1. Slide each component out of the chassis evenly so that it does not become stuck or damaged.
  2. Label each component as you remove it so you can reinstall it in the correct location.
  3. Immediately store each removed component in an electrostatic bag.
  4. Do not stack removed components. Lay each one on a flat surface.

Note: For complete instructions on removing services gateway components, see the SRX5800 Services Gateway Hardware Guide.

Install the Services Gateway

Before installing the services gateway, you must remove all components (see Remove Components). To install the services gateway using a lift:

  1. Ensure that 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 the SRX5800 Services Gateway Hardware Guide.
  2. Load the services gateway onto the lift, making sure that it rests securely on the lift platform (see Figure 6).

  3. Using the lift, position the services gateway in front of the rack or cabinet, centering it in front of the mounting shelves.
  4. Lift the chassis approximately 0.75 in. above the surface of the mounting shelves, and position it as close as possible to the shelves.
  5. Carefully slide the services gateway onto the mounting shelves so that the bottom of the chassis and the mounting shelves overlap by approximately 2 inches.
  6. Slide the services gateway onto the mounting shelves until the mounting brackets or front-mounting flanges contact the rack rails. The shelves ensure that the holes in the mounting brackets and the front-mounting flanges of the chassis align with the holes in the rack rails.
  7. Move the lift away from the rack.
  8. To install the services gateway in an open-frame rack, install a mounting screw into each of the open mounting holes aligned with the rack, starting from the bottom.
  9. 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.

Reinstall Components

To reinstall the components in the services gateway:

  1. Slide each component into the chassis evenly so that it does not become stuck or damaged.
  2. Tighten the captive screws for each component.

Note: Make sure that all empty slots are covered with blank panels before operating the services gateway.
