Installing the SRX210 Services Gateway in a Rack

 

You can front-mount the SRX210 Services Gateway in a rack. Many types of racks are acceptable, including four-post (telco) racks, enclosed cabinets, and open-frame racks. For more information about the type of rack or cabinet the SRX210 Services Gateway can be installed into, see SRX210 Services Gateway Rack Requirements.

Note

The rack-mounting kit is not shipped with the device and must be ordered separately.

Note
  • If you are installing multiple devices in one rack, install the lowest one first and proceed upward in the rack.

  • Ensure that the rubber feet from the base of the chassis are removed for rack installation.



To install the device in a rack:

  1. Position a mounting bracket on each side of the chassis as shown in Figure 1.
