Locating the SRX Series Services Gateway Hardware Component Mini-PIM or GPIM Serial Number Label

This topic includes the following sections:

SRX Series Services Gateway Mini-PIM Serial Number Label

Mini-Physical Interface Modules (Mini-PIMs) are field-replaceable on the SRX Series Services Gateway. Each Mini-PIM has a unique serial number. The serial number label is located on the right side of the Mini-PIM, when the Mini-PIM is horizontally oriented (as it would be installed on the device). The exact location might be slightly different on different Mini-PIMs, depending on the placement of components on the Mini-PIM.

SRX Series Services Gateway GPIM Serial Number Label

Gigabit-Backplane Physical Interface Modules (GPIMs) are hot-swappable and field-replaceable on the SRX Series Services Gateway. Each GPIM has a unique serial number. The exact location might be slightly different on different GPIMs (XPIMs or GPIMs), depending on the placement of the components on the GPIM.

Note

Only the SRX650 Services Gateway supports hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs. The SRX550 Services Gateway does not support hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs.

  • Use the original shipping materials if they are available.

  • Place individual Mini-Physical Interface Modules (Mini-PIMs) in electrostatic bags.

  • Write the Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number on the exterior of the box to ensure proper tracking.

Caution

Do not stack any of the services gateway components during packing.
