    Packing the M40e Router for Shipment

    To pack the router for shipment:

    1. Retrieve the shipping crate and packing materials in which the router was originally shipped. If you do not have these materials, contact your Juniper Networks representative about approved packaging materials.
    2. Shut down power to the router by pressing the power switch for all power supplies to the off (O) position. On an AC-powered router, the switch for each power supply is on the power supply faceplate. On a DC-powered router, the switches are on the circuit breaker box.
    3. On the console or other management device connected to the master Routing Engine, enter CLI operational mode and issue the following command to shut down the router software. (If two Routing Engines are installed, also issue the command on the backup Routing Engine.)
    4. Shut down power to the router by pressing the power switch for all power supplies to the off (O) position. On both AC and DC power supplies, the switch is located on the power supply faceplate.
    5. Disconnect power from the router. For instructions, see Disconnecting AC Power from the M40e Router or Disconnecting DC Power from the M40e Router.
    6. Remove the cables that connect to all external devices. For instructions, see Replacing the M40e Management Ethernet Cable, Replacing the M40e Console or Auxiliary Cable, Replacing Alarm Relay Wires on the M40e Router, and Removing a PIC Cable from an M40e Router.
    7. Remove all Field Replaceable Units (FRUs) from the router.
    8. Remove the router from the rack:
      • If you are using a mechanical lift, place the lift platform under the router, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack, and move the router to the shipping crate.
      • If you are not using a mechanical lift and the router weight is fully supported by a shelf or another router, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack. Two people can then lift the router and move it to the shipping crate.
      • If you are not using a mechanical lift and the router weight is not fully supported by a shelf or another router, two people should grasp the router while a third person unscrews and removes the mounting screws from the rack. The two lifters can then move the router to the shipping crate.
    9. Place the router in the shipping crate or onto the pallet. If on a pallet, bolt the router to the pallet.
    10. Cover the router with an ESD bag and place the packing foam on top of and around the router.
    11. Replace the accessory box on top of the packing foam.
    12. Securely tape the box closed or place the crate cover over the router.
    13. Write the RMA number on the exterior of the box to ensure proper tracking.
