Packing the T1600 Router for Shipment

 

To pack the router for shipment:

  1. Retrieve the shipping crate and packing materials in which the router was originally shipped. If you do not have these materials, contact your Juniper Networks representative about approved packaging materials.
  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. On the console or other management device connected to the master Routing Engine, enter CLI operational mode. To shut down the router software:
    user@host> request system halt

    (If two Routing Engines are installed, also issue the command on the backup Routing Engine.) Wait until a message appears on the console confirming that the operating system has halted.

    The command shuts down the Routing Engine cleanly, so its state information is preserved. For more information about the command, see request system halt.

    Note

    The SIB might continue forwarding traffic for approximately 5 minutes after the request system halt command has been issued.

  4. For all power supplies, shut down power to the router by pressing the circuit breakers to the off (O) position, or the power switch to the standby position.
  5. Disconnect power from the router. For instructions, see:
  6. Remove the cables that connect to all external devices. For instructions, see Replacing a T1600 Console or Auxiliary Cable, Replacing a T1600 Management Ethernet Cable, Replacing the T1600 Alarm Relay Wires, and Replacing a T1600 PIC Cable .
  7. Remove all Field Replaceable Units (FRUs) from the router.
  8. Remove the router from the rack:
    • If you are using a mechanical lift, place the lift platform under the router, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack, and move the router to the shipping crate.

    • If you are not using a mechanical lift and the router weight is fully supported by a shelf or another router, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack. Four people can then lift the router and move it to the shipping crate.

    • If you are not using a mechanical lift and the router weight is not fully supported by a shelf or another router, four people should grasp the router while a fifth person unscrews and removes the mounting screws from the rack. The four lifters can then move the router to the shipping crate.

  9. Place the router in the shipping crate or onto the pallet. If on a pallet, bolt the router to the pallet.
  10. Cover the router with an ESD bag and place the packing foam on top of and around the router.
  11. Replace the accessory box on top of the packing foam.
  12. Securely tape the box closed or place the crate cover over the router.
  13. Write the RMA number on the exterior of the box to ensure proper tracking.
