Replacing an MCS on an M40e Router
The router can have an MCS in each of the slots labeled MCS0 and MCS1 at
the rear of the chassis, as shown in Figure 3.
Each MCS weighs approximately 2.5 lb (1 kg).
The MCSs are hot-pluggable. For a description of the effect of removing
an MCS, see Host Module Components on M40e Routers.
Removing an MCS from an M40e Router
To remove an MCS from an M40e router, follow this procedure:
Place an electrostatic bag or antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface
to receive the MCS.
- Attach an ESD strap to your bare wrist and connect the
strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
- Remove the rear component cover by loosening the thumbscrews
at the corners of the cover and pulling it straight off of the chassis.
- If two host modules are installed, check whether the MCS
you are removing belongs to the master host module. If so, switch mastership
to the standby host module. For instructions, see Switching
Host Module Mastership on an M40e Router.
- On the console or other management device connected to
the Routing Engine that is paired with the MCS you are removing, enter CLI
operational mode and issue the following command. The command shuts down the
Routing Engine cleanly, so its state information is preserved:
- user@host> request system halt
Wait to continue until a message appears on the console confirming
that the operating system has halted.
- Flip the ends of the extractor clips outward, as shown
in Figure 9.
- Grasp the extractor clips and slide the unit about halfway
out of the chassis.
- Place one hand under the MCS to support it, slide it completely
out of the chassis, and place it on the antistatic mat or in the electrostatic
bag prepared in Step Step 1.

Installing an MCS in an M40e Router
To install an MCS in an M40e router, follow this procedure:
- Attach an ESD strap to your bare wrist and connect
the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
- Place one hand under the MCS to support it and grasp one
of the extractor clips on the faceplate with the other hand.
- Align the rear of the MCS with the guides inside the chassis
and slide it in completely (see Figure 10).
- Press the extractor clips on the left and right sides of
the MCS inward.
- Verify that the green LED labeled OK on the MCS
faceplate is lit. Also check the host module LEDs on the craft interface to
verify that the green LED labeled ONLINE is lit for the host module
to which the MCS belongs.
You can also issue the following CLI command to verify correct Routing
- user@host> show chassis environment mcs
For further information, see the JUNOS System Basics and Services Command Reference.
- Reinstall the rear component cover and tighten the thumbscrews
at the corners to secure it to the chassis.
