Returning an EX 8200 series Switch or Component for Repair or Replacement

If you need to return a switch or hardware component to Juniper Networks for repair or replacement, follow this procedure:

  1. Determine the serial number of the component. For instructions, see Locating the Serial Number on an EX 8200 series Switch or Component.
  2. Obtain an RMA number from JTAC as described in Contacting Customer Support to Obtain Return Materials Authorization for EX-series Switches.

    Note: Do not return any component to Juniper Networks unless you have first obtained an RMA number. Juniper Networks reserves the right to refuse shipments that do not have an RMA. Refused shipments are returned to the customer through collect freight.

  3. Pack the switch or component for shipping as described in Packing an EX 8200 series Switch or Component.
