Removing an Optical ILA from a Rack or Cabinet


If you need to remove an optical ILA to return it or relocate an installed optical ILA, perform the following procedure. (The remainder of this topic uses rack to mean rack or cabinet.)


When you remove multiple devices from a rack, remove the device in the top of the rack first and proceed to remove the rest of the devices from top to bottom to avoid toppling the rack.

Before removing an optical ILA from a rack:

Ensure that you have the following tool available:

  • Screwdriver appropriate for your rack-mounting screws.

To remove an optical ILA from a rack:

  1. Use a screwdriver to remove the front-mounting screws that attach the chassis mounting brackets to the rack or cabinet.
  2. Remove the optical ILA from the rack.
  3. Transport the optical ILA to your desired new location or pack it to prepare to return (see How to Return a Hardware Component to Juniper Networks, Inc.).
