    Installing an SF Module in an EX9208 Switch

    You can install either one or two Switch Fabric (SF) modules in an EX9208 switch depending on the switch configuration you want to have. One SF module is included in the base configuration. See EX9208 Switch Configurations.

    Note: Do not lift the SF module by holding the ejector handles. The ejector handles cannot support the weight of the module. Lifting the module by the ejector handles might bend the ejector handles. Bent ejector handles prevent the SF module from being properly seated in the chassis.

    Before you begin installing an SF module in an EX9208 switch:

    Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to install an SF module:

    • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap

    To install an SF module (see Figure 1):

    1. Attach the electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
    2. If the slot has a cover panel on it, rotate the ejector handles simultaneously counterclockwise to unseat the cover panel.
    3. Grasp the ejector handles, and slide the blank panel out of the chassis. Save the cover panel for later use.
    4. Taking care not to touch the leads, pins, or solder connections, pull the SF module out from the bag.
    5. Rotate the ejector handles to a vertical position.
    6. Align the sides of the SF module with the guides inside the chassis.
    7. Ensuring that the module remains correctly aligned, slide the SF module into the chassis until you feel resistance.
    8. Rotate both the ejector handles simultaneously clockwise until the SF module is fully seated. Place the ejector handles in the proper position, horizontally and toward the center of the board.
    9. Verify that the SF module is installed correctly and functioning normally by checking the LEDs on the faceplate of the SF module.
      • The OK/FAIL LED glows steady green a few minutes after the SF module is successfully installed.
      • If the OK/FAIL LED is red, remove and install the SF module again. If the OK/FAIL LED is still red or is off, the SF module is not functioning properly. Contact your customer support representative.
    10. Check the status of the SF using the show chassis environment cb command:
      user@switch> show chassis environment cb
