Installing an SPC in an SRX1400 Services Gateway

 

There are two places where you can install an SPC in your SRX1400 Services Gateway:

  • You can install an SPC in the front-panel slot labeled 1 if you also install an NPC in the slot labeled 3. This combination of SPC and NPC replaces the full-width NSPC that is normally installed in the SRX1400 Services Gateway to perform both services processing and network processing functions.

  • If your SRX1400 Services Gateway is running Junos OS Release 12.1X44-D10 or later, you can install an SPC in slot 2. Doing so increases the services processing performance of the services gateway and increases its session capacity.

Before installing your card, see SRX1400 Services Gateway Front Panel to verify that you have selected an appropriate slot location.

Note

If a slot is not occupied by a card, you must install a blank panel to shield the empty slot and to allow cooling air to circulate properly through the services gateway.

To install an SPC:

  1. 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 Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage to the SRX1400 Services Gateway.

  2. Place the card on an antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag.
  3. If necessary, remove the blank panel covering the slot where you are installing the SPC. If you are installing the SPC in slot 1 in conjunction with an NPC in slot 3, remove the double-wide filler cover from the slot by loosening its screws and sliding it out of the slot.
  4. If you are installing the SPC in slot 1 in conjunction with an NPC in slot 3, insert the double-wide tray and insert it straight into the slot until you hear a click, indicating the latch has closed as shown in Figure 1.

  5. Orient the SPC so that the faceplate faces you. Slide the SPC all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance. See Figure 2 and Figure 3.

  6. Tighten the screws on either side of the card.

You can proceed with installing other hardware components or power supplies, or connecting to a management device. See Powering On the SRX1400 Services Gateway to power on the SRX1400 Services Gateway.

Warning

Never lift the services gateway using the handles on the front panels of the SPC or other CFM cards. The handles might come off, causing the chassis to drop and inflicting possible grave injury.
