Returning Products for Repair or Replacement

In the event of a hardware failure, please contact Juniper Networks to obtain a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. This number is necessary to ensure proper tracking and handling of returned material at the factory. Do not return any hardware until you have received an RMA. Juniper Networks reserves the right to refuse shipments that do not have an RMA. Refused shipments are returned to the shipper via collect freight.

Packing Instructions for Returning a Chassis

If possible, use the original shipping crate, pallet, and packing materials in which the chassis was originally shipped. If these materials are unavailable, use comparable shipping material, or contact your Juniper Networks representative for information on approved packaging material.

To pack the chassis for shipment:

  1. Ground yourself by using an antistatic wrist strap or other device.
  2. Issue the proper shutdown commands to halt your system.
  3. Power the system down by pressing the PWR button.
  4. Remove all cables from the chassis.
  5. Remove the chassis from the rack.
  6. Pack the chassis securely in a proper shipping container, covering the chassis with an ESD bag and placing packing foam on top of and around the chassis.
