Powering On and Powering Off the SRX100 Services Gateway


This topic describes the following procedures:

Powering On the SRX100 Services Gateway

To power on the services gateway:

  1. Ensure that you have connected the power supply to the device.
  2. Insert the plug of the power supply adapter into an AC power source receptacle.
  3. Turn on the power to the AC power receptacle.

The device starts automatically as the power supply completes its startup sequence. The Power LED lights during startup and remains on when the device is operating normally.


After the power supply is turned on, it can take up to 60 seconds for status indicators—such as the Status and Power LEDs—to show that the power supply is functioning normally. Ignore error indicators that appear during the first 60 seconds.


If the system is completely powered off when you turn on the power supply, the device starts as the power supply completes its startup sequence. If the device finishes starting and you need to power off the system again, first issue the CLI request system power-off command.

Powering Off the SRX100 Services Gateway

You can power off the services gateway in one of the following ways:

  • Graceful shutdown—Press and immediately release the Power button. The device begins gracefully shutting down the operating system and then powers itself off.


    Use the graceful shutdown method to power off or reboot the services gateway.

  • Forced shutdown—Press the Power button and hold it for ten seconds. The device immediately powers itself off without shutting down the operating system.


    Use the forced shutdown method as a last resort to recover the services gateway if the services gateway operating system is not responding to the graceful shutdown method.

For more information on power button, see SRX100 Services Gateway LEDs.


Do not press the Power button while the device is shutting down.


Forced shutdown can result in data loss and corruption of the file system.


To remove power completely from the device, unplug the power cord or switch off the AC power source.

After powering off a power supply, wait at least 10 seconds before turning it back on. After powering on a power supply, wait at least 10 seconds before turning it off.

The power button on the services gateway is a standby power switch, which will not turn off the input power to the services gateway.


When you are powering off the device, the CLI displays the following message: Turning the system power off. You can now safely remove the power cable to completely power off the device.


You can use the request system reboot CLI command to schedule a reboot to the services gateway using request system reboot.
