Powering the PTX3000 On and Off

Powering On an AC-Powered PTX3000

To power on an AC-powered router:

  1. Verify that each power supply module (PSM) is fully inserted in the chassis and that the captive screws on the PSM faceplates are tightened.
  2. Verify that the AC power cords are connected correctly.
  3. Verify that an external management device is connected to one of the Routing Engine ports on the Control Board or the Routing and Control Board (RCB). The auxiliary ports are labeled AUX and the management console ports are labeled CON.
    Note:

    The management Ethernet port labeled HOST/ETHERNET on the Control Board and MGT on the RCB are not available until after the initial software configuration. You can monitor the startup process during the initial installation by using devices connected to the AUX or CON ports.

  4. Turn on power to the external management device.
  5. Switch on the dedicated customer-site circuit breakers to provide power to the AC power cables. Follow your site’s procedures.
  6. Verify that the input 1 and input 2 LEDs on the AC PSM faceplates are lit steadily green for each connected input, indicating that the power supplies are receiving power.
  7. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  8. Switch the power switch on one of the AC PSMs to the on position (|). The OK LED blinks momentarily, and then is lit steadily.
    Note:

    The Routing Engine or the RCB—depending on your configuration—boots as the PSM completes its startup sequence. If the Routing Engine or RCB finishes booting and you need to power off the system, see Powering Off the PTX3000 in the PTX3000 Packet Transport Router Hardware Guide.

    After powering on a power supply, you must wait at least 60 seconds before powering it off.

  9. Verify that the OK LED on the AC PSM faceplate is lit steadily, indicating that power supply is correctly installed, functioning properly, and providing power to the outputs.
  10. On the external management device connected to the PTX3000, monitor the startup process to verify that the system has booted properly.
  11. Repeat Step 8 and Step 9 for the other PSMs.

Powering On a DC-Powered PTX3000

To power on a DC-powered PTX3000:

Note:

After powering off a power supply, you must wait at least 60 seconds before powering it on again.

  1. Verify that the power supply modules (PSMs) are fully inserted in the chassis and that the captive screw on the faceplate of each PSM is tightened.
  2. Verify that the DC power cables are connected correctly.
  3. Verify that an external management device is connected to one of the Routing Engine ports on the Control Board or the Routing and Control Board (RCB). The auxiliary ports are labeled AUX and the management console ports are labeled CON.
    Note:

    The management Ethernet port labeled HOST/ETHERNET on the Control Board and MGT on the RCB are not available until after the initial software configuration. You can monitor the startup process during the initial installation by using devices connected to the AUX or CON ports.

  4. Turn on the power to the external management device.
  5. Switch on the customer-site circuit breakers to provide voltage to the DC power source cables. Follow your site’s procedures.
  6. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point on the chassis.
  7. Verify that the input 1 and input 2 LEDs on the PSM faceplate are lit steadily green, indicating that the inputs are receiving input voltage.
  8. Switch the power switch on one PSM to the on position (|).
    Note:

    After a PSM is powered on, it can take up to 60 seconds for status indicators—such as the LEDs on the PSMs and the command output displays—to indicate that the PSMs are functioning normally. Ignore error indicators that appear during the first 60 seconds.

    Note:

    The Routing Engine or the RCB—depending on your configuration—boots as the PSM completes its startup sequence. If the Routing Engine or RCB finishes booting and you need to power off the system, see Powering Off the PTX3000 in the PTX3000 Packet Transport Router Hardware Guide.

    After powering on a power supply, you must wait at least 60 seconds before powering it off.

  9. Verify that the OK LED on the PSM faceplate is lit steadily and that the LED is off, indicating that the PSM is correctly installed and is functioning properly.
    Note:

    If the OK LED is not light steadily, remove the PSM, repeat the cabling procedure, and reinstall the PSM into the PTX3000.

  10. On the external management device connected to the PTX3000, monitor the startup process to verify that the system has booted properly.
  11. Repeat Step 8 and Step 9 for the other PSMs.

Powering Off the PTX3000

Powering Off a PTX3000 with RE-DUO-C2600-16G Routing Engines

To power off a PTX3000 with RE-DUO-C2600-16G Routing Engines:

Note:

After powering on a power supply, wait at least 60 seconds before powering it off.

  1. On an external management device connected to the PTX3000, issue the request system halt both-routing-engines operational mode command. The command shuts down the Routing Engines cleanly, so their state information is preserved. See request system halt in the Junos OS Software Installation and Upgade Guide for more information about the command.

    If the PTX3000 contains only one Routing Engine, issue the request system halt command.

    Wait until a message appears on the console confirming that the operating system has halted.

  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point on the chassis.
  3. Move the power switch on each PSM to the standby position ().
  4. Verify that the OK LED on each PSM faceplate is off.
    Note:

    After powering off a power supply, you must wait at least 60 seconds before powering it on again.

Powering Off a PTX3000 with RCB-PTX-X6-32G Routing and Control Boards

To power off a PTX3000 with RCB-PTX-X6-32G Routing and Control Boards (RCBs):

Note:

After powering on a power supply, wait at least 60 seconds before powering it off.

  1. On an external management device connected to the PTX3000, issue the request vmhost halt routing-engine both operational mode command. The command shuts down the RCBs cleanly, so their state information is preserved. See request vmhost halt in the Junos OS Software Installation and Upgade Guide for more information about the command.

    If the PTX3000 contains only one RCB, issue the request vmhost halt command.

    Wait until a message appears on the console confirming that the operating system has halted.

  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point on the chassis.
  3. Move the power switch on each PSM to the standby position ().
  4. Verify that the OK LED on each PSM faceplate is off.
    Note:

    After powering off a power supply, you must wait at least 60 seconds before powering it on again.
