MX10008 Alarm and Management Cable Specifications and Pinouts

 

Console Port Connector Pinouts for an MX10008 Router

The console port (labeled CON) on the RCB panel is an RS-232 serial interface that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to a console management device. The default baud rate for the console port is 9600 baud.

Table 1 provides the pinout information for the RJ-45 console connector. An RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter are supplied with the MX10008.

Note

If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 male connector pin and you want to connect your laptop or PC directly to an MX10008 router, use a combination of the RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter supplied with the device and a USB to DB-9 male adapter. You must provide the USB to DB-9 male adapter.

USB Port Specifications for the MX10008 Router

The following Juniper Networks USB flash drives have been tested and are officially supported for the USB port in the MX10008 router:

  • RE-USB-1G-S—1-gigabyte (GB) USB flash drive

  • RE-USB-2G-S—2-GB USB flash drive

  • RE-USB-4G-S—4-GB USB flash drive

Caution

Any USB memory product not listed as supported for the MX10008 router has not been tested by Juniper Networks. The use of any unsupported USB memory product could expose your device to unpredictable behavior. Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center (JTAC) can provide only limited support for issues related to unsupported hardware. We strongly recommend that you use only supported USB flash drives.

Caution

Remove the USB flash drive before upgrading Junos OS or rebooting an MX10008 router. Failure to do so could expose your device to unpredictable behavior.

Note

USB flash drives used with the MX10008 router must support USB 2.0 or later.

Management Port Connector Pinouts for the MX10008 Router

The 1000BASE-T RJ-45 management ports use an RJ-45 connector to connect either to the control plane and management network in an MX10008 router, or to a management device for out-of-band management.

Table 2 provides the pinout information of the RJ-45 management port connector. An RJ-45 cable is supplied with the MX10008 router.
