    Installing Common Form Factor Modules In SRX1400, SRX3400, and SRX3600 Services Gateways

    To install a Common Form Factor Module (CFM):

    1. Attach an 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 the hardware documentation for your services gateway.
    2. If you are installing cold-swap-only CFMs, power off the services gateway. See Hot-Swappable and Cold-Swap-Only Modules on the SRX1400, SRX3400, and SRX3600 Services Gateways for a list of hot-swappable and cold-swap-only modules.

      To power off the services gateway, press the Power button for three to five seconds:

      • On SRX3400 and SRX3600 Services Gateways, the Power button is located on the front panel of the Switch Fabric Board (SFB).
      • On SRX1400 Services Gateways, the Power button is located on the front panel of the System I/O card (SYSIOC).

      The PWR LED blinks to show you that the services gateway is shutting down. Wait for the services gateway to shut down before you proceed to the next step.

    3. Identify the slot on the services gateway where you will install the CFM. For information about CFM slot compatibility see
    4. Place the CFM on an antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag and place it on top of the bag.
    5. If the slot you are installing the CFM in is covered by a blank panel, loosen the screws at each end and remove the panel. Keep the panel in a safe place in case you decide to remove a CFM from the services gateway.
    6. Orient the CFM so that the faceplate faces you. Slide the CFM all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance.
    7. Tighten the screws on either side of the CFM faceplate(Figure 1).

    8. If you are installing additional CFMs at this time, repeat steps 3 through 7.
    9. Insert the appropriate cables into the cable connector ports on each CFM as applicable. Secure the cables so that they are not supporting their own weight. Place excess cable out of the way in a neatly coiled loop. Placing fasteners on a loop helps to maintain its shape.
    10. If you inserted hot-swappable CFMs without powering off the services gateway, bring each new CFM online by presing its ONLINE button for five or more seconds to power it on and bring it online.

    Warning: Never lift the services gateway using the handles on the front panels of the CFM cards. The handles might come off, causing the chassis to drop and inflicting possible grave injury.
