  • Ensure that you do not need to route traffic through the optical ILA.

  • Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to power off the optical ILA:

    • An ESD grounding strap

    • An external management device such as a PC

    • An RJ-45 to DB-9 rollover cable to connect the external management device to the console port

  4. Disconnect power to the optical ILA:

    • AC power supply—If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, set it to the off (O) position. If the AC power source outlet does not have a power switch, gently pull out the plug end of the power cord connected to the power source outlet.

    • DC power supply—Switch the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit to the off position.

  5. Remove the power source cable from the power supply faceplate:

    • AC power supply—Gently pull out the socket end of the power plug connected to the power supply faceplate.

    • DC power supply—Loosen the screws for the power connector and remove the connector.
