Packing the SRX5800 Services Gateway for Shipment

To pack the services gateway for shipment:

  1. Retrieve the shipping crate and packing materials in which the services gateway was originally shipped. If you do not have these materials, contact your Juniper Networks representative about approved packaging materials.
  2. On the console or other management device connected to the master Routing Engine, enter CLI operational mode and issue the following command to shut down the services gateway software.
    user@host> request system halt

    Wait until a message appears on the console confirming that the operating system has halted.

    For more information about the command, see the Junos OS System Basics and Services Command Reference PDF Document.

  3. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  4. Shut down power to the services gateway by pressing the AC input switch or DC circuit breaker for all power supplies to the off (O) position.
  5. Disconnect power from the services gateway.
  6. Remove the cables that connect to all external devices.
  7. Remove all field replaceable units (FRUs) from the services gateway.
  8. Remove the services gateway chassis from the rack:

    • If you are using a mechanical lift, place the lift platform under the chassis, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack, and move the chassis to the shipping crate.
    • If you are not using a mechanical lift and the chassis weight is fully supported by a shelf or another device, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack. Three people can then lift the chassis and move it to the shipping crate.
    • If you are not using a mechanical lift and the chassis weight is not fully supported by a shelf or another device, three people should grasp the chassis while a fourth person unscrews and removes the mounting screws from the rack. The three lifters can then move the chassis to the shipping container.
  9. Place the services gateway in the shipping crate or onto the pallet. If on a pallet, bolt the services gateway to the pallet.
  10. Cover the services gateway with an ESD bag and place the packing foam on top of and around the services gateway.
  11. Replace the accessory box on top of the packing foam.
  12. Securely tape the box closed or place the crate cover over the services gateway.
  13. Write the RMA number on the exterior of the box to ensure proper tracking.
