Unpacking the QFX10008

Unpacking the Chassis

After you prepare the installation site as described in QFX10008 Site Preparation Checklist, you can unpack the switch.

Note:

The chassis is maximally protected inside the shipping box. Do not unpack it until you are ready to begin installation.

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to unpack the QFX10008:

  • A 13/32 in. (10 mm) open-end or socket wrench to remove the bracket bolts from the shipping pallet

  • A box cutter or packing knife to slice open the nylon straps and tape that seal the crate and boxes

The chassis ships in a cardboard box that has a two-layer wooden pallet base with foam cushioning between the layers. The switch chassis is bolted to the pallet base.

The shipper has the option to either ship the front panel separately or to ship along with the chassis. If the front panel arrives with the chassis, set aside the front panel box until you are ready to verify the contents of the order.

To unpack the chassis (see Figure 1):

Figure 1: Shipping Crate and Accessory BoxShipping Crate and Accessory Box
  1. Move the shipping box to a staging area as close to the installation site as possible. While the chassis is bolted to the pallet, you can use a forklift or pallet jack to move it. Make sure there is enough space to remove components from the chassis.
  2. Position the shipping box with the arrows pointing up.
  3. Slice the nylon straps with the box cutter that hold the shipping boxes to the pallet.
  4. Lift the shipping box off the chassis.
  5. Remove the cardboard accessory box.
  6. Remove the foam padding from the top of the box.
  7. Remove the plastic cover from the switch chassis.
  8. Use a 13/32 in. (10 mm) open-end or socket wrench to remove the four sets of bracket bolts that secure the chassis to the shipping pallet (see Figure 2).

  9. Unpack the accessory box and lay out the contents so that they are ready for use.
  10. Verify that your order includes all appropriate parts. See Comparing the QFX10000 Order to the Packing List and QFX10008 Configurations and Upgrade Options for information about base configurations and redundant configurations.
  11. Store the brackets and bolts inside the accessory box.
  12. Save the shipping box and packing materials in case you need to move or ship the switch at a later time.

Unpacking QFX10000 Line Cards, Routing and Control Boards, and Switch Interface Boards

Before you unpack a component:

Orders for line cards, additional Routing and Control Boards (RCBs), and Switch Interface Boards (SIBs) components are FRUs that are shipped separately from the switch chassis. The housing for the RCBs and line cards are rigid sheet-metal structures that house the electronics. SIBs have an exposed printed circuit board on one side and sheet metal on the other. All these components are shipped in a cardboard carton, secured with packing material.

CAUTION:

The components are maximally protected inside the shipping carton. Do not unpack them until you are ready to install the components in the switch chassis.

To unpack an RCB, SIB, or line card, (see Figure 3):

  1. Move the shipping carton to a staging area as close to the installation site as possible.
  2. Position the carton so that the arrows are pointing up.
  3. Open the top flaps on the shipping carton.
  4. Pull out the packing material that holds the component in place.
  5. Remove the component from the electrostatic bag.
  6. Save the shipping carton and packing materials for later, in case you need to move or ship the RCB, SIB, or line card.

Comparing the QFX10000 Order to the Packing List

Use the following procedure to compare the sales order and packing list against the contents of the chassis shipping crate.

The switch chassis shipment includes a packing list. Check the parts you receive in the shipping crate against the items on the packing list. The packing list specifies the part number and description of each part in your order.

If any part on the packing list is missing, contact your customer service representative, or contact Juniper Networks Customer Care from within the U.S. or Canada by telephone at 1-888-314-5822. For international-dial or direct-dial options in countries without toll-free numbers, see https://www.juniper.net/support/requesting-support.html.

Items that ship separately from the chassis are:

  • Line cards

  • Chassis front panel kit

    Note:

    The kit is a spare part and can ship with the chassis or separately.

  • Cable management kit

  • SATA solid state drive

  1. Determine the configuration. The parts shipped depend on the configuration you order. Supported configurations are:
    • Redundant configuration. See Table 1.

      • QFX10008-REDUND

      • QFX10008-REDUND-DC

      • QFX10008-REDUND-H

      • QFX10016-REDUND

      • QFX10016-REDUND-DC

    • Base configuration. See Table 2.

      • QFX10008-BASE

      • QFX10008-BASE-H

      • QFX10016-BASE

  2. Compare redundant configuration orders using Table 1.
