Replacing an NVS Card

To replace an NVS card on an SRP module:

Caution: Before you insert or remove an NVS card from a running SRP module, we strongly recommend that you halt the SRP module or shut down the router. Failure to do this can result in file corruption in one or both cards. See JunosE System Basics Configuration Guide, Chapter 6, Managing Modules for information about the halt command.

  1. Obtain an antistatic container for the NVS card you plan to remove. (See Storing Modules and Components.)
  2. Be sure you have halted the SRP module using the halt command.
  3. With a small flathead screwdriver, remove the faceplate from the NVS card slot on the SRP module. (See Figure 37.)
  4. Use the screwdriver to depress the release button next to the NVS card. (See Figure 37.)

    This action releases the NVS card.

  6. Insert the new NVS card into the slot, and push it until it clicks into place.
  7. Replace the faceplate on the NVS card slot.
