Installing the SRX5800 Services Gateway Chassis in the Rack Manually

To install the services gateway in the rack (see Figure 97):

Caution: If you are installing more than one services gateway in a rack, install the lowest one first. Installing a services gateway in an upper position in a rack or cabinet requires a lift.

Caution: Before front mounting the services gateway in a rack, have a qualified technician verify that the rack is strong enough to support the services gateway's weight and is adequately supported at the installation site.

Caution: Lifting the chassis and mounting it in a rack requires three people. The empty chassis weighs approximately 150 lb (68 kg).

  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.
  2. Position the services gateway in front of the rack or cabinet, centering it in front of the mounting shelf. Use a pallet jack if one is available.
  3. With one person on each side and one person in the front, hold onto the bottom of the chassis and carefully lift it onto the large and small (if installed) mounting shelves.

    Warning: To prevent injury, keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back. Avoid twisting your body as you lift. Balance the load evenly and be sure that your footing is solid.

  4. Slide the services gateway onto the mounting shelves until the center-mounting brackets or front-mounting flanges contact the rack rails. The shelves ensure that the holes in the center-mounting brackets and the front-mounting flanges of the chassis align with the holes in the rack rails.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
