Return Procedure for the SRX5600 Services Gateway

If a problem cannot be resolved by the JTAC technician, a Return Materials Authorization (RMA) is issued. This number is used to track the returned material at the factory and to return repaired or new components to the customer as needed.

Note

Do not return any component to Juniper Networks, Inc. unless you have first obtained an RMA number. Juniper Networks, Inc. reserves the right to refuse shipments that do not have an RMA. Refused shipments will be returned to the customer via collect freight.

For more information about return and repair policies, see the customer support Web page at https://www.juniper.net/support/guidelines.html .

To return a services gateway or component to Juniper Networks for repair or replacement:

  1. Determine the part number and serial number of the services gateway or component. For the serial number locations of cards and modules such as MPCs, SPCs, port modules and Routing Engines, see the SRX5400, SRX5600, and SRX5800 Services Gateway Card Reference   at www.juniper.net/documentation/.
  2. Obtain a Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number from JTAC.Note

    Do not return the services gateway or any component to Juniper Networks unless you have first obtained an RMA number. Juniper Networks reserves the right to refuse shipments that do not have an RMA. Refused shipments are returned to the customer via collect freight.

  3. Pack the services gateway or component for shipping.

Listing the SRX5600 Services Gateway Component Serial Numbers with the CLI

Before contacting Juniper Networks, Inc. to request a Return Materials Authorization (RMA), you must find the serial number on the services gateway or component. To display all of the services gateway components and their serial numbers, enter the following command-line interface (CLI) command:

user@host> show chassis hardware

Most components also have a small rectangular serial number ID label (see Figure 1) attached to the component body.

Information You Might Need to Supply to JTAC

When requesting support from JTAC by telephone, be prepared to provide the following information:

  • Your existing case number, if you have one

  • Details of the failure or problem

  • Type of activity being performed on the services gateway when the problem occurred

Required Tools and Parts for Packing the SRX5600 Services Gateway

To remove components from the services gateway or the services gateway from a rack, you need the following tools and parts:

  • 2.5-mm flat-blade (–) screwdriver, for detaching alarm relay terminal block

  • 7/16-in. (11 mm) nut driver

  • Blank panels to cover empty slots

  • Electrostatic bag or antistatic mat, for each component

  • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding wrist strap

  • Flat-blade (–) screwdriver

  • Mechanical lift, if available

  • Phillips (+) screwdrivers, numbers 1 and 2

  • Rubber safety cap for fiber-optic interfaces or cable

  • Wire cutters

Packing the SRX5600 Services Gateway for Shipment

To pack the services gateway for shipment:

  1. Retrieve the shipping crate and packing materials in which the services gateway was originally shipped. If you do not have these materials, contact your Juniper Networks representative about approved packaging materials.
  2. On the console or other management device connected to the primary Routing Engine, enter CLI operational mode and issue the following command to shut down the services gateway software.
    user@host> request system halt

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

    For more information about the command, see Junos OS System Basics and Services Command Reference at www.juniper.net/documentation/.

  3. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  4. Shut down power to the services gateway by pressing the AC input switch or DC circuit breaker for all power supplies to the off (O) position.
  5. Disconnect power from the services gateway.
  6. Remove the cables that connect to all external devices.
  7. Remove all field replaceable units (FRUs) from the services gateway.
  8. Remove the services gateway chassis from the rack:

    • If you are using a mechanical lift, place the lift platform under the chassis, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack, and move the chassis to the shipping crate.

    • If you are not using a mechanical lift and the chassis weight is fully supported by a shelf or another device, unscrew and remove the mounting screws from the rack. Three people can then lift the chassis and move it to the shipping crate.

    • If you are not using a mechanical lift and the chassis weight is not fully supported by a shelf or another device, three people should grasp the chassis while a fourth person unscrews and removes the mounting screws from the rack. The three lifters can then move the chassis to the shipping container.

  9. Place the services gateway in the shipping crate or onto the pallet. If on a pallet, bolt the services gateway to the pallet.
  10. Cover the services gateway with an ESD bag and place the packing foam on top of and around the services gateway.
  11. Replace the accessory box on top of the packing foam.
  12. Securely tape the box closed or place the crate cover over the services gateway.
  13. Write the RMA number on the exterior of the box to ensure proper tracking.

Packing SRX5600 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.
