Uninstalling the PTX10001

 

Removing a PTX10001 from a Rack or Cabinet

If you need to relocate an installed PTX10001, use the procedure described in this topic. (The remainder of this topic uses “rack” to mean “rack or cabinet.” )

Note

When you remove multiple devices from a rack, remove the device at the top of the rack first and proceed to remove the rest of the devices from top to bottom.

Before removing a PTX10001 from a rack:

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

  • A Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2 or number 3, depending on the size of your rack mounting screws, for removing the PTX10001 from the rack.

To remove a PTX10001 from a rack:

  1. Have one person support the weight of the device while another person uses the screwdriver to remove the front mounting screws that attach the chassis mounting brackets to the rack.
  2. Remove the PTX10001 from the rack.
  3. Use the screwdriver to remove the mounting screws that attach the mounting blades attached to the rear of the rack.
  4. Place the removed screws and rear-mounting blades in a labeled bag. You will need them when you reinstall the chassis.
  5. Transport the PTX10001 to the new location.
