Installing a Fan Tray in a QFX3600 or QFX3600-I Device

Before you install a fan tray in a QFX3600 or QFX3600-I device, ensure that you have taken the necessary precautions to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage (see Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge Damage).

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to install a fan tray in a QFX3600 or QFX3600-I device:

  • ESD grounding strap

The fan trays in QFX3600 and QFX3600-I devices are hot-removable and hot-insertable field-replaceable units (FRUs): you can remove and replace them without powering off the device or disrupting device functions.

To install a fan tray in a QFX3600 or QFX3600-I device (see Figure 1):

  1. Attach the ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point on the chassis.
  2. Taking care not to touch the connectors, remove the fan tray from its bag.
  3. Using both hands, align the tray with the fan tray slot on the rear panel of the chassis and slide it in until it is fully seated.
