Installing an MX2000 SFB

To install an SFB (see Figure 1):


Before removing or replacing an SFB, ensure that the ejector handles are stored horizontally and pressed toward the center of the SFB.


If one of the SFBs fails, do not remove the failed SFB until you have a replacement or blank panel to install.

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Take each SFB to be installed out of its electrostatic bag, and identify the slot on the SFB where it will be connected.
  3. Carefully align the sides of the SFB with the guides inside the chassis.
  4. Slide the SFB into the chassis until you feel resistance, carefully ensuring that it is correctly aligned.
  5. Place the ejector handles in their proper position, vertically and toward the center of the board.

  6. Check the LEDs on the SFB faceplate to verify that it is functioning normally.
    • The green OK/FAIL LED should light steadily a few minutes after the SFB is installed.

    • If the OK/FAIL LED is red, remove and install the SFB again. If the OK/FAIL LED still lights steadily, the SFB is not functioning properly. Contact your customer support representative. See Contact Customer Support.

  7. Check the status of the SFB by using the show chassis environment sfb command:
