Returning the QFX5130-32CD Chassis or Components

 

Locating the Serial Number on a QFX5130-32CD Device or Component

If you are returning a switch or component to Juniper Networks for repair or replacement, you must locate the serial number of the switch or component. You must provide this serial number to the Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center (JTAC) when you contact them to obtain a Return Materials Authorization (RMA).

If the switch is operational and you can access the CLI), you can list serial numbers for the switch and for some components with a CLI command. If you do not have access to the CLI or if the serial number for the component does not appear in the command output, you can locate the serial number ID label on the switch or component.

Note

If you want to find the serial number ID label on a component, you need to remove the component from the switch chassis, for which you must have the required parts and tools available.

Listing the Chassis and Component Details Using the CLI

To list the QFX5130-32CD switch and components and their serial numbers, use the show chassis hardware CLI operational mode command. The following examples shows the output for the QFX5130-32CD model.

Note

You must remove the fan module to read the fan serial number from the serial number ID label. The fan module serial number cannot be viewed through the CLI. Fan Tray 2 refers to the third module from the left, counting from 0.

Locating the Chassis Serial Number ID Label on a QFX5130-32CD

You can find the chassis serial number in either the show chassis hardware command output or physically on a pull-out tab located on the right side of the QFX5130-32CD port panel. For an example of where to find the serial number ID on the chassis, see Figure 1 for the QFX5130-32CD.

Number ID Label on a QFX5130-32CD Switch

Locating the Serial Number ID Labels on FRU Components

The power supplies and fan modules installed in a QFX5130-32CD are field-replaceable units (FRUs). For each FRU, you must remove the FRU from the switch chassis to see the FRU serial number ID label.

  • AC power supply—The serial number ID label is on the top of the AC power supply.

  • Fan module—The serial number ID label is on the bottom of the fan module.

Removing the Solid-State Drives for RMA

The QFX5130-32CD models have two solid-state drives (SSDs) that store the software images, system logs, and the configuration files. Before returning a chassis to Juniper Networks as part of a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA), you have the option of removing the SSDs and disposing them according to your own company’s security procedures. Before you begin this procedure, ensure you have the following tools:

  • ESD grounding strip (not provided)

  • Number 2 Phillips screwdriver

Use this optional procedure to remove the drives from the QFX5130-32CD after the device has shutdown and you’ve removed it from the rack or cabinet. The SSD doors are located on the top of QFX5130-32CD.

  1. Attach the ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist and to a site ESD point.
  2. Place the device on a firm surface such as a workbench or a table with the SSD doors facing up.
  3. For the QFX5130-32CD–Use the number 2 Phillips screwdriver to remove the three flat-head screws from each door on the top of the device. See Figure 4.

  4. Remove the doors and set aside with the screws.
  5. Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw on one of the SSDs and set it aside.

  6. Lift the end furthest from the connector and remove from the cavity. Repeat Step 5 and Step 6.
  7. Replace the screws and hand-tighten the screws using the Phillips screwdriver.
  8. Replace the SSD doors and the six flat-head screws.
