Installing the SRE on the SRX650 Services Gateway


The SRE installs at the back panel of the chassis in the horizontal slots labeled SRE0 or SRE1.0/1.1.


The SRE is not hot-swappable. You must power off the services gateway before removing or inserting an SRE.

To install the SRE:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point on the chassis.
  2. Power off the services gateway.
  3. If a blank panel is installed in the SRE slot, remove it.
  4. Carefully align the sides of the SRE with the guides inside the chassis. Also ensure that the locking levers on each side of the SRE are in the open position.
  5. Slide the SRE into the chassis until you feel resistance, carefully ensuring that it is correctly aligned (see Figure 1).
  6. With your thumbs, push the locking levers into place to fully lock the SRE into the slot.Warning

    If the locking levers are not aligned properly with the edge of the SRE slot, the SRE will not be properly seated into the SRE backplane receptacle.

  7. Use a number 2 Phillips screwdriver to tighten the captive screws on each side of the locking levers.
  8. Power on the services gateway and verify that the SRE LED indicators on the chassis and the SRE LED are green.
