Installing a Blank Gigabit-Backplane Physical Interface Module Faceplate on the SRX Series Services Gateway


To maintain proper airflow through the services gateway, install blank faceplates in slots that do not contain Gigabit-Backplane Physical Interface Modules (GPIMs).

To install a blank faceplate:

  1. Align the captive screws on the blank faceplate with the screw holes on the chassis.
  2. Using a Phillips (+) screwdriver, tighten the captive screws on each side of the blank faceplate until the faceplate is flush with the chassis.
