    Installing Routing Engines and SRX Clustering Modules In SRX1400, SRX3400, and SRX3600 Services Gateways

    To install a Routing Engine or SRX Clustering Module (SCM):

    1. Place an electrostatic bag or antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface.
    2. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see the hardware documentation for your services gateway.
    3. If you have not already done so, power off the services gateway by pressing the Power button on the front panel of the Switch Fabric Board (SFB) for three to five seconds.

      The PWR LED blinks to show you that the services gateway is shutting down. Wait for the services gateway to shut down before you proceed to the next step.

    4. Identify the slot in the services gateway where you are installing the Routing Engine or SRX Clustering Module:

      • On SRX1400 Services Gateways, Routing Engines always go in slot RE
      • On SRX3400 and SRX3600 Services Gateways, Routing Engines always go in slot RE0
      • SCMs always go in slot RE1
    5. Carefully align the sides of the Routing Engine or SCM with the guides inside the chassis.
    6. Slide the Routing Engine or SCM into the slot until you feel resistance, and then press its faceplate until it engages the connectors.
    7. Press both of the ejector handles inward to seat the Routing Engine or SCM.
    8. Tighten the captive screws on the left and right of the Routing Engine or SCM.

    9. Reconnect cables previously attached to the AUX or USB ports.
    10. Power on the services gateway by pressing the Power button on the front panel of the SFB for three to five seconds. Wait for the services gateway to start. The OK/FAIL LED on the Routing Engine or SCM faceplate should blink green, then light steadily.

      Note: The Routing Engine might require several minutes to boot. If after this time the OK/FAIL LED is red, remove and reinstall the Routing Engine. If the OK/FAIL LED remains red, the Routing Engine is not functioning properly. Contact your customer support representative.
