8-Port Gigabit Ethernet SFP XPIM Basic Configuration

 

The 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet small form-factor pluggable Gigabit-Backplane Physical Interface Module (SFP XPIM) provides connectivity to a single Gigabit Ethernet device or to a network. After you install the XPIM in the services gateway, you configure a network interface on the XPIM.

Note

Only the SRX650 Services Gateway supports hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs. The SRX550 Services Gateway does not support hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs.

To configure a network interface on the 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet SFP XPIM :

  1. Verify that the 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet SFP XPIM is installed in the services gateway:

    user@host >show chassis hardware

    The following is a sample output of the command. (The output shown is for an SRX550 Services Gateway; other devices give similar output):

    The output shows that FPC 3 PIC 0 is the XPIM.

  2. Verify that the PIC on the XPIM is online:

    user@host> show chassis fpc pic-status

    The following sample output shows that FPC 3 PIC 0 is online:

  3. Verify that the network interface that you want to configure on the XPIM is up:

    user@host> show interfaces terse

    The following is a sample output for this command:

    The following sample output shows extensive details of ge-3/0/0 on the interface:

  4. Assign the interface an IP address:

    [edit]

    user@host# set interfaces interface-name unit 0 family inet address interface address/destination prefix

  5. Set security policies:

    [edit]

    user@host# set security policies policy-name
