Installing and Removing EX8208 Switch Hardware Components

 

The field-replaceable units (FRUs) in an EX8208 switch are:

  • Switch Fabric and Routing Engine (SRE) module

  • Switch Fabric (SF) module

  • 8-port SFP+ line card

  • 40-port SFP+ line card

  • EX8200-2XS-40P line card

  • EX8200-2XS-40T line card

  • EX8200-48PL line card

  • EX8200-48TL line card

  • 48-port SFP line card

  • 48-port RJ-45 line card

  • Power supplies (AC and DC)

  • Fan tray

The SRE module and SF module are hot-removable or hot-pluggable depending on the configuration of the switch. See EX8208 Switch Configurations.

All the line cards are hot-removable and hot-insertable. However, we recommend that you take them offline before removing them.

The AC and DC power supplies, fan tray, SFP transceiver, and SFP+ transceiver in EX8200 switches are hot-removable and hot-insertable FRUs: you can remove and replace them without powering off the switch or disrupting switch functions.
