Power Off a QFX5100 Device

Before you power off a QFX5100 switch:

Note:

Use the following procedure to turn off power on a QFX5100 device that is in standalone mode, a member in a QFX Virtual Chassis, or either a spine device or a leaf device in a Virtual Chassis Fabric. QFX5100 devices that are configured either as Node devices or as an Interconnect device in a QFabric system running OS Junos release 14.1 or later, must use a different procedure and CLI to ensure there is no traffic loss. See Adding or Replacing a Node Device in a QFabric Node Group.

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to power off the switch:

  • An ESD grounding strap

  • An external management device such as a PC

  • An RJ-45 to DB-9 rollover cable to connect the external management device to the console port

To power off a QFX5100 switch:

  1. Connect to the switch using one of the following methods:
  2. Shut down Junos OS from the external management device by issuing the request system halt operational mode CLI command. This command shuts down the switch gracefully and preserves system state information. A message appears on the console, confirming that the operating system has halted.

    You see the following output (or something similar, depending on the hardware being shut down) after entering the command:

    CAUTION:

    The final output of any version of the request system halt command is “Power down.” Wait at least 60 seconds after first seeing this message before following the instructions in Step 4 and Step 5 to power off the switch.

  3. Attach the grounding strap to your bare wrist and to a site ESD point.
  4. Disconnect power to the switch by performing one of the following tasks:
    • AC power supply—If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, set it to the OFF (O) position. If the AC power source outlet does not have a power switch, gently pull out the plug end of the power cord connected to the power source outlet.

    • DC power supply—Switch the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit to the OFF position.

  5. Remove the power source cable from the power supply faceplate:
    • AC power supply—Remove the power cord from the power supply faceplate by detaching the power cord retainer and gently pulling out the socket end of the power cord connected to the power supply faceplate.

    • DC power supply—Remove the screws securing the ring lugs attached to the power source cables to the power supply using the screwdriver, and remove the power source cables from the power supply. Replace the screws on the terminals and tighten them.

  6. Uncable the switch before removing it from the rack or cabinet.
