Installing the Routing Engine in an M5 or M10 Router

To install a Routing Engine in an M5 or M10 router, follow this procedure (see Figure 9):

  1. Attach an ESD wrist strap to your bare wrist and connect the wrist strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Place one hand under the Routing Engine to support it and grasp one of the extractor clips on the faceplate with the other hand.
  3. Align the rear of the Routing Engine with the guide rails inside the chassis and slide it in completely.    

    Be careful to align the Routing Engine correctly with the guide rails and push it in evenly. Damage can result if it gets lodged because of uneven movement.

  4. Press the extractor clips inward (see Figure 9).
  5. If applicable, tighten the screws on the extractor clips, using a Phillips screwdriver. Be sure to tighten the screws enough to seat the Routing Engine properly.
  6. Press the rear cover into place over the FEB and the Routing Engine, and screw in the five screws to hold it in place.
  7. Flip the power switch on the power supply faceplate to the ON (|) position.

    The Routing Engine might require several minutes to boot.

  8. After the router boots, verify that neither of the alarm LEDs on the craft interface is lit. If an LED is lit, contact your customer service representative for assistance.

    You can also issue the following CLI command to verify correct Routing Engine functioning:

    For further information, see the JUNOS Protocols, Class of Service, and System Basics Command Reference.
