Powering Off a QFX5210
Use the following procedure to turn off power on a QFX5210 standalone switch.
Before you remove the power cord to power off a QFX5210:
Ensure that you have taken the necessary precautions to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage. See Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge Damage.
Ensure that you do not need to forward traffic through the switch.
Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to power off the switch:
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
To power off a QFX5210 switch:
- Connect to the switch using one of the following methods:
Connect a management device to the console (
CON) port on a QFX5210. For instructions about connecting a management device to the console (
CON) port, see Connecting a Device to a Management Console Using an RJ-45 Connector.
You can shut down the QFX5210 from a management device on your out-of-band management network. For instructions about connecting a management device to the management (
CO) port, see Connecting a Device to a Network for Out-of-Band Management.
- Shut down Junos OS from the external management device
by issuing the request system halt operational mode CLI
command. This command shuts down the switch gracefully and preserves
system state information. A message appears on the console, confirming
that the operating system has halted.
You see the following output (or something similar, depending on the hardware being shut down) after entering the command:

The final output of any version of the request system halt command is the “The operating system has halted.” Wait at least 60 seconds after first seeing this message before following the instructions in Step 4 and Step 5 to power off the switch.
- Attach the grounding strap to your bare wrist and to a site ESD point.
Disconnect power to the switch:
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 male 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.
Remove the power source cable from the power supply faceplate:
AC power supply—Remove the power cord from the power supply faceplate by detaching the power cord retainer and gently pulling out the female end of the power cord connected to the power supply faceplate.
DC power supply—Remove the power source cables to the power supply by unlatching the cables from the power supply.
- Uncable the switch before removing it from the rack or cabinet.
