Removing a Blank Mini-Physical Interface Module Faceplate from the SRX Series Services Gateway

 

Before you begin, power-off the services gateway.

Caution

The Mini-PIMs available on the SRX Series Services Gateway are not hot-swappable. You must power off the services gateway before removing or installing Mini-PIMs.

To maintain proper airflow through the services gateway, cover any empty Mini-Physical Interface Module (Mini-PIM) slot with a blank faceplate.

Caution

Do not remove a blank faceplate unless you are installing a mini-pim in the empty slot.

To remove a blank faceplate from the SRX Series Services Gateway:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point on the services gateway.
  2. If the device is powered on, power off the device. Verify that the Power LED is off.
  3. Loosen the screws on each side of the faceplate.
    • On faceplates with handles, use a 1/8-in. (3-mm) flat-blade (–) screwdriver to loosen but not remove the captive screws.

    • On faceplates without handles, use a Phillips number 1 screwdriver to remove the noncaptive screws.

  4. Remove the faceplate. See Figure 1.
