Packing the M7i 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. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. Verify that the router is attached to a proper earth ground.
  3. Power off the router. See Powering Off the M7i Router.
  4. Disconnect power from the router: .
    • Unplug the power cord from each power supply. See Removing an M7i AC Power Cord

      Note

      When multiple AC power supplies are installed in the chassis, each AC power cord (one for each power supply) must be unplugged to disconnect power completely from the router.

    • See Removing an M7I DC Power Cable.

      Note

      All DC power cables must be disconnected to disconnect power completely from the router.

  5. Remove the cables that connect to all external devices. For instructions, see Replacing the Routing Engine Interface Port Cables and Removing an M7i PIC.
  6. Remove all Field Replaceable Units (FRUs) from the router.
  7. 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

      • If the router weight is fully supported by a shelf or another router, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack. Then, move it to the shipping crate.

      • If the router weight is not fully supported by a shelf or another router, one person should grasp the router while another person unscrews and removes the mounting screws from the rack. You can then move the router to the shipping crate.

  8. Place the router in the shipping crate or onto the pallet. If on a pallet, bolt the router to the pallet.
  9. Cover the router with an ESD bag and place the packing foam on top of and around the router.
  10. Replace the accessory box on top of the packing foam.
  11. Securely tape the box closed or place the crate cover over the router.
  12. Write the RMA number on the exterior of the box to ensure proper tracking.
