Removing a Blank GPIM Faceplate from the SRX650 Services Gateway
To maintain proper airflow through the services gateway, leave blank faceplates in place over slots that do not contain GPIMs. Do not remove a blank faceplate unless you are installing a GPIM in the empty slot.
To remove a blank faceplate:
- Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage to the SRX650 Services Gateway.
- Power off the services gateway.
- Using a Phillips (+) screwdriver, loosen the captive screws on each side of the blank faceplate.
- Using a flat-blade (–) screwdriver, gently pry out one side of the faceplate and pull it off.
Note: When installing a blank GPIM faceplate, make sure that the padded side of the faceplate is facing up.
