    Removing and Inserting the PC Card in an M40e Router

    A slot labeled PC CARD on the Routing Engine faceplate accepts a Type I PC Card, as defined in the PC Card Standard published by the Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA). The router is shipped with a PC Card that contains Junos OS. The PC Card can be used to copy Junos OS from the PC Card onto the Routing Engine. You can also copy Junos OS from the Routing Engine onto a PC Card, for example, to create a backup copy of upgrade software that you have obtained from Juniper Networks. Instructions for copying software to a PC Card are available at the Juniper Networks Support Web site (http://www.juniper.net/support/); after logging in, navigate to the Customer Support Center, then to the download page for Junos OS.

    Note: The appearance and position of electronic components or the PC Card slot on your Routing Engine might differ from the figures in this section. These differences do not affect Routing Engine installation and removal or functionality.

    Note: The software on a PC Card is loaded only onto the Routing Engine into which the PC Card is inserted. It is not automatically copied to the other Routing Engine.

    Removing the M40e PC Card

    The PC Card is inserted in the slot labeled PC CARD in the Routing Engine faceplate. To remove the PC Card (see Figure 1):

    1. Remove the rear component cover by loosening the thumbscrew at each corner of the cover and pulling it straight off the chassis. For complete instructions, see Removing Components from the Chassis Before Installing the M40e Router Without a Lift.
    2. Press the eject button located next to the PC Card slot in the Routing Engine faceplate. Note that the PC Card slot might be located in a different position from that shown in Figure 1.
    3. When the PC Card pops partially out of the slot, grasp the card and pull it straight out of the slot.

    Inserting the M40e PC Card

    To insert the PC Card (see Figure 2):

    1. Orient the PC Card with the Juniper Networks logo facing in the direction specified on the Routing Engine faceplate. Insert the card into the slot.
    2. Press the card firmly all the way into the slot. Note that the PC Card slot might be located in a different position from that shown in Figure 2.
    3. Reinstall the rear component cover and tighten the thumbscrew at each corner to secure it to the chassis. For complete instructions, see Reinstalling the M40e Components into the Chassis.

      Caution: To maintain proper airflow and provide electromagnetic shielding, do not operate the router without the rear component cover in place.
