Removing an Uplink Module from an EX4300 Switch

  1. Take the uplink module offline by issuing the following CLI command:
  2. Wrap and fasten one end of an ESD wrist strap around your bare wrist, and connect the other end of the strap to the ESD point on the switch.
  3. Loosen both captive screws on the faceplate of the uplink module by using your fingers. If you are unable to unscrew the captive screws by using your fingers, use the screwdriver.
    CAUTION:

    Do not pull the uplink module out of the module slot by holding the faceplate of the uplink module.


    1. 48-port EX4300 switches except EX4300-48MP and EX4300-48MP-S switches—Hold both the ejector handles or the captive screws on the uplink module and gently pull the uplink module toward you and out of the module slot.
    2. EX4300-48MP and EX4300-48MP-S switches—Hold the ejector handle on the uplink module and gently pull the uplink module toward you and out of the module slot.
  4. Place the uplink module in an antistatic bag or on an antistatic mat placed on a flat, stable surface.
  5. If you are not replacing the uplink module, install the cover panel over the slot.
    Note:

    After you have removed an uplink module, wait for at least 5 seconds before you install an uplink module. If you do not wait for at least 5 seconds, the interfaces on the uplink module might not come up.
