Powering On and Powering Off the SRX210 Services Gateway


This topic includes the following sections:

Powering On the SRX210 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 up 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.


We recommend issuing the CLI command request system power-off when you want to power off the device immediately after the device is powered on.

Powering Off the SRX210 Services Gateway

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

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

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


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


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


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


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

If you press the Power button to power off the device when it is still connected to a power source, 12 V (Low Memory and High Memory models) /48 V (PoE models) power will still be available in the chassis and the device will be fully powered off.


The 48 V (150 W) and 54 V (150 W) power supplies are deprecated. These power supplies are still supported but can no longer be ordered.


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


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

Resetting the SRX210 Services Gateway

The Reset Config button located at the front panel of the SRX210 Services Gateway removes the current configuration and resets the device to the default configuration. The button is recessed in the front panel to prevent it from being pressed accidentally.


Pressing and holding the Reset Config button for 15 seconds or more deletes all configurations on the device and loads and commits the factory configuration.
