Packing the T4000 Router for Shipment

 

To pack the router for shipment:

  1. Retrieve the shipping crate and packing materials in which the router was originally shipped. If you do not have these materials, contact your Juniper Networks representative about approved packaging materials.
  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. On the console or other management device connected to the master Routing Engine, enter CLI operational mode. To power off the router, see Powering Off the T4000 Router.
  4. Disconnect power from the router. .
  5. Remove the cables that connect to all external devices. For instructions, see Removing a T4000 Management Ethernet Cable, Removing a T4000 Console or Auxiliary Cable, and Replacing the T4000 Alarm Relay Wires.
  6. Remove all field replaceable units (FRUs) from the router.
  7. Remove the router from the rack:
    • If you are using a mechanical lift, place the lift platform under the router, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack, and move the router to the shipping crate.

    • If you are not using a mechanical lift:

      • If the router weight is fully supported by a shelf or another router, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack. Four people can then lift the router and move it to the shipping crate.

      • If the router weight is not fully supported by a shelf or another router, four people should grasp the router while another person unscrews and removes the mounting screws from the rack. The lifters can then move the router to the shipping crate.

  8. Place the router into the shipping crate or onto the pallet. If on a pallet, bolt the router to the pallet.
  9. Cover the router with an ESD bag, and place packing foam on top of and around the router.
  10. Replace the accessory box on top of the packing foam.
  11. Securely tape the box closed or place the crate cover over the router.
  12. Write the Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number on the exterior of the box to ensure proper tracking.
