PTX10000 Field-Replaceable Units

 

Field-replaceable units (FRUs) are router components that you can replace at your site. The router uses these types of FRUs:

  • Hot-insertable and hot-removable—You can remove and replace these components without powering off the router or disrupting the routing function.

  • Hot-pluggable—You can remove and replace these components without powering off the router, but the routing function is interrupted until you replace the component.

Table 1 lists the FRUs and their types for the PTX10000 routers.

Power supplies

Hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Fan tray controller

Hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Routing and Control Board

Redundant configuration:

  • Master RCB is hot-pluggable.

  • Backup RCB is hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Base configuration:

  • Removal of the RCB causes the router to shut down. You can install a replacement RCB in the second slot. The system restarts to elect a master and backup. If necessary, you can switch the master and backup using the request chassis routing-engine master switch command.

See PTX10008 Components and Configurations and PTX10016 Components and Configurations.

Switch Interface Boards (SIBs)

SIBs are hot-insertable and hot-removable. We recommend that you take SIBs offline before removing them to avoid traffic loss while the router fabric is being reconfigured. For example:

user@router> request chassis sib (offline | online) slot slot-number offline

Line cards

Hot-insertable and hot-removable. We recommend that you take line cards offline before removing them. For example:

user@router> request chassis fpc slot slot-number offline

Optical transceivers

See PTX10000 Optical Transceiver and Cable Support for the Junos OS release in which the transceivers were introduced.

Hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Note

Line cards are not part of the base or redundant configuration. You must order them separately.

Note

If you have a Juniper Care service contract, register any addition, change, or upgrade of hardware components at https://www.juniper.net/customers/support/tools/updateinstallbase/. Failure to do so can result in significant delays if you need replacement parts. This note does not apply if you replace an existing component with the same type of component.
