Locating the Serial Number on the SRX4600 Services Gateway or Component

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

If the services gateway is operational and you can access the CLI, you can list serial numbers for the services gateway 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 physical device or component.

Listing the SRX4600 Services Gateway Component Details with the CLI

Before contacting Juniper Networks to request a Return Materials Authorization (RMA), you must find the serial number on the SRX4600 Services Gateway or component. To list all the SRX4600 Services Gateway components and their serial numbers, enter the following CLI command:

user@host> show chassis hardware

Locating the SRX4600 Services Gateway Chassis Serial Number ID Label

The serial number ID label is located on the top of the chassis. See Figure 1 for the location on an SRX4600 services gateway.

Packing the SRX4600 Services Gateway for Shipment

To pack the services gateway for shipment:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to the ESD point on the chassis or to an outside ESD point if the device is disconnected from earth ground. .
  2. On the console or other management device connected to the services gateway, enter CLI operational mode and issue the following command to shut down the services gateway software:

    user@host> request system power-off

    Wait until a message appears on the console confirming that the operating system has halted.

  3. Shut down power to the services gateway.
  4. Disconnect power from the services gateway.
  5. Remove the cables that connect to all external devices.
  6. If the services gateway is installed in a rack, have one person support the weight of the services gateway while another person unscrews and removes the mounting screws.
  7. Place the services gateway in the shipping carton.
  8. Cover the services gateway with an ESD bag, and place the packing foam on top of and around the device.
  9. Replace the accessory box on top of the packing foam.
  10. Securely tape the box closed.
  11. Write the Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number on the exterior of the box to ensure proper tracking.

Packing the SRX4600 Services Gateway Components for Shipment

Follow these guidelines for packing and shipping individual components of the services gateway:

  • When you return a component, make sure that it is adequately protected with packing materials and packed so that the pieces are prevented from moving around inside the carton.

  • Use the original shipping materials if they are available.

  • Place the individual component in an electrostatic bag.

  • 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.
