    Mounting the Junos Pulse Gateway on Four Posts in a Rack or Cabinet

    You can mount a Junos Pulse Gateway on four posts of a 19-in. rack or cabinet by using the supplied rack-mount kit. (The remainder of this topic uses “rack” to mean “rack or cabinet.”)

    Note: If you are mounting the Junos Pulse Gateway on four posts, ensure that the rack is 21.5 in. through 31.5 in. deep if you will mount the Junos Pulse Gateway flush with the rack front and that the rack is 23.5 in. through 32.5 in. deep if you will mount the Junos Pulse Gateway 2 in. recessed from the rack front, thus ensuring that the protective earthing terminal is accessible through the opening in the rear bracket.

    Before mounting the Junos Pulse Gateway on four posts in a rack:

    • Verify that the site meets the requirements.
    • Place the rack in its permanent location, allowing adequate clearance for airflow and maintenance, and secure it to the building structure.
    • Read the Security Products Safety Guide located on the Juniper Networks website.
    • Remove the Junos Pulse Gateway from the shipping carton.

    Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

    • Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2
    • Mounting brackets and mounting screws (provided in the accessory box shipped with the Junos Pulse Gateway)
    • Screws to secure the chassis to the rack (not provided)

    To mount the Junos Pulse Gateway on four posts in a rack:

    1. Place the chassis on a flat, stable surface.
    2. Align a front bracket (either flush with the front of the chassis or 2-in.-recessed from the front of the chassis) along the side panel of the chassis. Align the two holes in the front of the brackets with the two holes on the front of the side panel.

      Note: Each side of the chassis has twelve holes for attaching the front brackets to the chassis.

      Six holes on the chassis side align with six holes in the front bracket when the front bracket is mounted flush with the chassis front or recessed 2 in. from the front of the chassis.

    3. Insert mounting screws into the two aligned holes and tighten the screws. Ensure that the remaining four holes in the front bracket are aligned with the four holes in the side panel.
    4. Insert mounting screws into the remaining four holes in the front bracket and tighten the screws.
    5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for attaching the front bracket to the other side of the chassis.
    6. Have one person grasp both sides of the Junos Pulse Gateway, lift the chassis, and position it in the rack, aligning the front bracket holes with the threaded holes in the front post of the rack. Align the bottom hole in both the mounting brackets with a hole in each rack rail, making sure the chassis is level.
    7. Have a second person secure the front of the chassis to the rack by using the appropriate screws for your rack.
    8. Slide the rear brackets into the rack.
    9. Attach the rear brackets to the Junos Pulse Gateway and rear post by using the appropriate screws for your rack. Tighten the screws.
    10. Ensure that the chassis is level by verifying that all the screws on the front of the rack are aligned with the screws at the back of the rack.
