2.1 Introduction to the EX2200 and EX2200-C Ethernet Switches

EX Series Ethernet Switches


Provide scalable connectivity for the enterprise market,
Including branch offices, campus locations, and data centers.
The EX2200 line
Provides connectivity for low-density environments.
The Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches run
The Junos OS, which provides Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching, routing, and security services.
The same Junos OS code base that runs on EX Series switches also runs on all Juniper Networks
o J Series,
o M Series,
o MX Series, and
o T Series routers and
o SRX Series Services Gateways.
EX2200 switches provide:
Up to four uplink ports;
12 (in the case of the EX2200-C), 24, or 48 built-in network ports with
10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet connectors; and power over Ethernet (PoE or PoE+) on all
network ports (in PoE-capable models).

The EX2200 and EX2200-C switches are available in configurations where all 12, 24, or
48 built-in network ports support PoE) or with no PoE capability.
EX2200 switches with DC power supply do not provide PoE.
The onscreen table lists all EX2200 switch models, and indicates which switch models support PoE.

2.2 About the EX2200 and EX2200-C Ethernet Switches

The EX2200 switch chassis is a rigid sheet-metal structure that houses the hardware components.
The EX2200 chassis measures
1.75 inches (4.45 cm) high,
17.5 inches (44.5 cm) wide, and
10.5 inches (26.7 cm) deep.

The outer edges of the front-mounting brackets extend the width to 19 inches (48.3 cm).
The EX2200-C chassis measures
1.75 inches (4.45 cm) high and
10.6 in. (26.92 cm) wide.
o The EX2200-C-12T model is 9 in. (22.8 cm) deep,
o While the EX2200-C-12P model is 9.4 in. (23.8 cm) deep.

Hardware Components on Front and Back Panel of an EX2200 Switch (EX2200-C Excepted)
The front panel of an EX2200 Switch (except for the EX2200-C switch) features the following components:
Network ports, depending on the switch model, either:
o 24 or 48 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet ports, with Power over Ethernet (PoE) not available
in EX2200-24T, EX2200-24T-DC, and EX2200-48T, or
o 24 or 48 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet ports, with PoE available in EX2200-24P and
EX2200-48P;
4 built-in SFP uplink ports;
2 chassis status LEDs;
4 port status mode LEDs; and
Mode button.
The rear panel of an EX2200 switch (again, not including the EX2200-C switch) features the
following components:
Management Ethernet port;
USB port;
Console port;
Protective earthing terminal;
ESD point;
Air exhaust;
AC power cord inlet or DC power terminals.
All EX2200 switches, except for the EX2200-C switch, have three exhaust openings on the rear panel. The two
exhaust openings on the left have fans behind them and are open.
The exhaust opening on the right is open on PoE models and closed on non-PoE models. On PoE models, this
opening exhausts the air from the fan at the air intake for the power supply on the side panel.
The power cord retainer clips extend out of the chassis by 3 in.
Hardware Components on Front and Back Panel of an EX2200-C Switch
The front panel of an EX2200-C switch consists of the following components:
Network ports, depending on the switch model, either:
o 12 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet ports, (non-PoE) in the EX2200-C-12T, or
o 12 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet ports, (PoE+) in the EX2200-C-12P;
2 built-in dual-purpose uplink ports, each of which includes one 10/100/1000 RJ-45 Ethernet port and
one SFP port;
1 USB port;
1 mini-USB console port;
1 RJ-45 console port;
1 management Ethernet port;
2 chassis status LEDs;
4 port status mode LEDs in PoE+ and 3 port status mode LEDs in non-PoE; and
Mode button.
The rear panel of an EX2200-C switch consists of the following components:
Protective earthing terminal;
ESD point;
AC power cord inlet; and
Heatsink - only in PoE+ models.
The EX2200-C switch is a fan-less model, so it has no exhaust openings. The PoE+ models have a heatsink
installed in the rear panel to dissipate the heat, while non-PoE models have no heatsink.

Lets take a closer look at the ports and slots provided on the EX2200 and EX2200-C Ethernet switches.
Click the appropriate link to learn more.

Each EX2200 switch, except the EX2200-C model, has four uplink ports that support 1-gigabit small
form-factor pluggable transceivers (SFPs) for use with fiber connections and copper connections.
Each dual-purpose uplink port is constructed with an RJ-45 port (10/100/1000BASE-T copper
connection) and an SFP port (100/1000BASE-FX).
You can configure a dual-purpose uplink port to operate it either as
o A 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet port or as
o A 100/1000BASE-FX SFP port, but not both, at the same time.
The switch activates only one port based on the connector (RJ-45 or SFP connector) plugged in to the
ports.
If both connectors are connected, then the port to which the RJ-45 connector is connected is activated.
You can also configure the port preference using the set interfaces command.
On an EX2200-C switch model you can install a cable guard to secure the cables connected to the
switch.
The cable guard has slots in the front of it through which you can pass all the cables to prevent them
from being accidently unplugged or removed after they are connected.
Each EX2200-C switch model has security slots on the left and right panels of the chassis.
The security slot provides the capability to lock and secure the chassis in the installation site using
standard cable lock.
EX2200 switches are available in models with or without PoE/PoE+ capability.
Models that support PoE/PoE+ provide that support on all network ports.
PoE ports provide electrical current to
o Devicessuch as IP phones,
o Wireless access points, and
o Security camerasthrough network cables, thus eliminating the need for separate power cords for
those devices.
EX2200 switches with DC power supply do not provide PoE.
EX2200 switches running Junos OS Release 10.3 or later support powered devices that comply with
IEEE 802.3af (PoE) and IEEE 802.3at (PoE+).
IEEE 802.3at class 4 powered devices require category 5 or higher Ethernet cables.
EX2200 switches running Junos OS Release 10.2 or earlier support powered devices that comply with
IEEE 802.3af (PoE).

features of the devices with your mouse.
Section 3: Installing the EX2200 and EX2200-C Ethernet
Switches

3.1 Installing an EX2200 or EX2200-C

You can mount the EX2200 or EX2200-C switch on a desktop, in a two-post rack, or on a wall.
Optional mounting accessories are available for other types of installations as well (though depicting these
installations is beyond the scope of this course).
See the on screen link for details.
Click the appropriate link to learn how to install your EX2200 or EX2200-C switch.

Lets look at how to desk mount an EX2200 or EX2200-C.


To desk mount a switch,
1. First, attach rubber feet to the bottom of the device to stabilize the chassis. The rubber feet are
shipped with the switch.
2. Choose a location for desk mounting that allows adequate clearance for airflow and maintenance, and
secure it to the building structure.
3. Then, place the mounted device on the desktop.

The EX2200 switch can be mounted on two posts of a 19-inch rack or cabinet by using the mounting brackets
provided with the switch. (note that The mounting brackets are optional for the EX2200-C switch, and must be
ordered separately).
Note that if you need to mount the switch in a recessed position on either a two-post rack or a four-post rack,
you can use the 2 inch in.-recess front mount brackets provided in the separately orderable four-post rack-
mount kit.
Note that we recommend that two people perform this procedure. One person must be available to lift the
switch while another secures the switch to the rack.
Before placing the switch in the rack, ensure that the rack is properly secured to the building in its permanent
location and the adequate clearance for airflow and maintenance is allowed.
If you are mounting multiple units on a rack, mount the heaviest unit at the bottom of the rack and mount the
other units from the bottom of the rack to the top in decreasing order of the weight of the units.
One pair of mounting brackets is supplied with the switch. The holes in the mounting brackets are spaced at 1
rack unit (1.75 inches or 4.445 cm), so the switch can be mounted in any rack that provides holes spaced at
that distance.
Follow these steps to install the switch in a two-post rack or cabinet:
1. First, attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist. Once the strap is on your wrist, connect it to an
outside ESD point.
Next, place the switch right-side up on a flat work surface, and
2. Position a mounting bracket on each side of the chassis as shown. The EX2200 can be either front or
rear mounted. Position the mounting brackets on the switch chassis depending on how you want to
mount the switch.
3. Tighten the screws that secure the mounting brackets to the chassis.
4. Next, lift the device and then position it in the rack. When correctly positioned, the device sits level in
the equipment rack.
WARNING
The chassis weighs between 15 lb (6.7 kg) and 18 lb (8 kg). Lift most of the weight with your legs, not
with your back. Keep your knees bent and your back relatively straight. Avoid twisting your body as you
lift. Balance the load evenly and be sure that your footing is solid.
5. Next, align one hole in each mounting bracket with a hole in each rack rail as shown, making sure the
chassis is level.
6. Have a second person install a mounting screw into each of the two aligned holes. With a number 2
Phillips screwdriver, tighten the screws.
7. Then, verify that the mounting screw on one side of the rack is aligned with the mounting screw on the
opposite side and that the switch is level.
8. Finally, install the remaining screws in each mounting bracket.

You can mount an EX2200 switch on a wall. The wall-mounting kit is not shipped with the device and needs to
be ordered separately.
WARNING
When mounted in a vertical position, a switch must be oriented with the front panel of the chassis pointing
down to ensure proper airflow and meet safety requirements in the event of a fire.
The wall mounting procedure for PoE models is not shown in this course. See the Complete Hardware Guide for
EX2200 Ethernet Switches at the link shown onscreen for details.
WARNING
When wall mounting Power over Ethernet (PoE) models (EX2200-24P and EX2200-48P), install the wall-mount
baffle above the units to reduce the risk of objects or substances falling into the air exhaust or power supply,
which could cause a fire.

Follow these instructions to mount the switch on a wall.


1. First, attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to the ESD point on the
chassis or to an outside ESD point if the device is disconnected from earth ground.
2. Then, attach the wall-mount brackets to the sides of the chassis using four of the wall-mount bracket
screws on each side.
3. Insert the mounting screws in the wall.
a. Insert the top pair of mounting screws 18.7 inches (or 474 mm) apart,
b. And insert the second pair of mounting screws 6 inches (or 152 mm) directly below the first set.
If the mounting screws are inserted in wall board with no stud behind it, you must use dry wall anchors
rated to support 75 lb (or 34 kg). Insert the screws into wall studs wherever possible to provide added
support for the chassis.
Rotate the screws only part way in, leaving about 1/4 inch (or 6 mm) distance between the head of the
screw and the wall.
4. Next, grasp each side of the switch or switches, lift the switch or switches, and hang the brackets from
the mounting screws.
5. Finally, tighten the mounting screws.
3.2 Connecting Earth Ground to an EX2200 or EX2200-C

To meet safety and electromagnetic interference (EMI) requirements and to ensure proper operation, EX2200
switches must be connected to earth ground before they are connected to power.
For installations that require a separate grounding conductor to the chassis, use the protective earthing terminal
on the device to connect to earth ground. The protective earthing terminal is located on the rear of the EX2200
chassis.
Before you connect earth ground to the protective earthing terminal, ensure that a licensed electrician has
attached an appropriate grounding lug to the grounding cable. Using a grounding cable with an incorrectly
attached lug can damage the switch.
An AC-powered EX Series switch chassis gets additional grounding when you plug the power supply in the
switch into a grounded AC power outlet with an AC power cord appropriate for your geographical location.
Follow these steps to connect EX Series switches to earth ground:
1. First, attach an electrostatic grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point
on the chassis.
2. Next, connect one end of the grounding cable to a proper earth ground, such as the rack in which the
switch is installed.
3. Place the grounding lug at the other end of the cable over the protective earthing terminal, as shown.
4. Secure the cable lug to the protective earthing terminal, first with the washer, then with the screw.
5. Finally, dress the grounding cable and ensure that it does not touch or block access to other switch
components and that it does not drape where people could trip over it.
3.3 Connecting an EX2200 or EX2200-C to Power

Before you connect the EX2200 or EX2200-C to AC power, ensure that you have connected the switch chassis to
earth ground before you connect it to power in order to meet safety and EMI requirements and to ensure proper
operation.
Follow these steps to connect the switch to AC power:
1. First, attach an electrostatic grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point
on the chassis.
2. Then, squeeze the two sides of the power cord retainer clip, and insert the L-shaped ends of the wire
clip into the holes in the bracket on each side of the power cord receptacle on the power supply
faceplate.
3. Insert the coupler end of the power cord into the power cord receptacle.
4. Then, push the cord into the slot in the adjustment nut of the power cord retainer. Turn the nut until it is
tight against the base of the coupler and the slot in the nut is turned 90 degrees from the top of the
switch.
5. If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, set it to the OFF position.
6. Insert the power cord plug into an AC power source outlet.
7. If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, set it to the ON position. The device will turn on
automatically.
8. Finally, dress the power cable and ensure that it does not touch or block access to other switch
components and that it does not drape where people could trip over it.

Connecting DC Power to an EX2200 Ethernet Switch


The DC power supply is built in along the rear panel of the DC-powered EX2200.
It has four terminals labeled A+, B+, A, and B for connecting DC power source cables labeled positive (+)
and negative (). The terminals are covered by a clear plastic cover.
The A+ and B+ terminals are referred to as +RTN, and A and B terminals are referred to as 48 V.
WARNING
DC-powered switches are intended for installation only in a restricted access location.
Before you connect power to the switch, a licensed electrician must attach a cable lug to the grounding and
power cables that you supply. A cable with an incorrectly attached lug can damage the switch (for example, by
causing a short circuit).
To meet safety and EMI requirements and to ensure proper operation, you must connect the switch to earth
ground before you connect it to power. For installations that require a separate grounding conductor to the
chassis, use the protective earthing terminal on the switch chassis to connect to the earth ground.
Warning:
Before performing DC power procedures, ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit. To ensure that all
power is off, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker
to the OFF position. Consider taping the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the OFF position.

To connect DC power to the switch:


1. Grasp the middle of the plastic cover over the terminals, gently flex it outwards, and pull it out. Save
the cover.
2. Then, loosen the screws on the terminals using the screwdriver.
3. Now, connect the power supply to the power source or sources.
Click the appropriate link to learn how to connect the power supply to a single power source or to
two power sources.

Connecting the power supply to a power source

1. Secure the lug of the positive (+) DC power source cable to the A+ or B+ terminal on the DC power
supply and tighten the screw
2. Secure the lug of the negative () DC power source cable to the A or B terminal on the DC power
supply and tighten the screw.
3. Next, hook the plastic cover on one side of the terminal block and gently flex it inwards to hook it on the
other side also.
4. Then, switch the input circuit breaker to the on position.

Connecting the power supply to two power sources


1. Secure the lug of the positive (+) DC power source cable from the first DC power source to the A+
terminal on the power supply and tighten the screw.
2. Secure the lug of the negative () DC power source cable from the first DC power source to the A
terminal on the power supply and tighten the screw.
3. Secure the lug of the positive (+) DC power source cable from the second DC power source to the B+
terminal on the power supply and tighten the screw.
4. Secure the lug of the negative () DC power source cable from the second DC power source to the B
terminal on the power supply and tighten the screw.
5. Next, hook the plastic cover on one side of the terminal block and gently flex it inwards to hook it on the
other side
6. Then, switch the input circuit breaker to the on position.
3.4 Connecting an EX2200 or EX2200-C to Out-of-Band Management and to
a Management Console
EX Series switches, with the exception of the EX2200-C, have an out-of-band management port with an RJ-45
connector on the rear panel. On the EX2200-C, this connector is found on the front panel.
If you need to monitor and manage an EX Series switch using a dedicated management channel, you can use
the out-of-band management port to connect the EX Series switch to the management device.
Follow these steps to connect an EX Series switch to a network for out-of-band management:
1. First, attach an electrostatic grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point
on the chassis.
2. Then, connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the management port (labeled MGMT) and
3. Then connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the management device.
EX Series switches, again with the exception of the EX2200-C, also have a console port with an RJ-45 connector
on the rear panel. On the EX2200-C, this connector is again found on the front panel.
If you need to monitor and manage an EX Series switch using a dedicated console, you can use the console port
to connect the EX Series switch to the console. You can also use the console port to connect the EX Series
switch to a console server.
If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 male connector pin and you want to connect your laptop or PC
directly to an EX Series switch, use a combination of an RJ-45 to DB-9 female adapter and a USB to DB-9 male
adapter.

Follow these steps to connect an EX Series switch to a management console:


1. First, attach an electrostatic grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point
on the chassis.
2. Then, connect one end of the Ethernet cable into the console port (labeled CON) and
3. Then connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the management console.
3.5 Performing Initial Configuration on an EX2200 or EX2200-C
The Junos software is preinstalled on the EX Series switch. When the switch is powered on, it is ready to be
configured.
If you are setting up a switch for the first time, you can use either the Junos command-line interface (CLI) on
all models or the J-Web Quick Configuration on some models to configure basic connectivity.
Click the appropriate link to learn how to configure your EX Series switch.

Follow these steps to configure the switch using the CLI:


1. First, if you havent already done so, connect a management device to the console port using an RJ-45
to DB-9 serial port adapter. The console port is located on the rear panel of the switch.
2. Power on both the switch and the management device.
3. Start your asynchronous terminal emulation application (such as Microsoft HyperTerminal) and select
the appropriate COM port to use (for example, COM1).
4. To use the console terminal or terminal emulation utility configure the following serial connection
parameters as follows:
Bits per second rate: 9600
Data bits: 8
Parity: None
Stop bits: 1
Flow Control: None
5. Enter the username root.
6. At the prompt, type ezsetup.
To run the EZSetup script, the switch must have the factory default configuration. If you have
configured anything on the switch and want to run ezsetup, restore the factory default configuration.
7. Then, enter the hostname. (This step is optional.)
8. Enter the root password you plan to use for this device. You are prompted to re-enter the root
password.
9. Enter yes to enable services like telnet and SSH.
When Telnet is enabled, you will not be able to log in to an EX Series switch through Telnet using root
credentials. Root login is allowed only for SSH access.
10. Next, select one of the switch management options from the Management Options page.
The first of these options is Configure in-band management. For this option, you have two more
options. You can either
use the default VLAN or create a new VLAN.
o If you choose to create a new VLAN, you are prompted to specify the VLAN name, VLAN ID,
management IP address, and default gateway. Select the ports that must be part of this
VLAN. The second option is Configure out-of-band management. Specify the IP address and
gateway of the management interface.
o Use this IP address to connect to the switch through the out-of-band management Ethernet
port located on the rear of the switch.
Next, specify the SNMP Read Community, Location, and Contact to configure SNMP parameters.
These parameters are optional.
11. Specify the system date and time. Select the time zone from the list. These parameters are also
optional.
12. The configured parameters are displayed.
13. Enter yes to commit the configuration.

The configuration is committed as the active configuration for the switch. You can now log in with the CLI to
continue configuring the switch.
To run the EZSetup utility, the switch must have the factory default configuration. If you have configured
anything on the switch and want to run EZSetup, revert to the factory default configuration.

Follow these steps to configure the switch using the J-Web interface:
Note that EX2200-24T-DC switches and EX2200-C switches do not support switch connection and configuration
through the J-Web procedure.
1. First, connect the Ethernet cable from the Ethernet port on the management device to port 0 (or ge-
0/0/0) on the front panel of the switch.
2. Then, transition the switch into initial setup mode by pressing the mode button located on the lower
right corner of the front panel for 10 seconds.
The switch will transition into initial setup mode only when the switch is in the factory default
configuration. Port 0 (or ge-0/0/0) is configured as the DHCP server with the default IP address,
192.168.1.1. The switch can assign an IP address to the management PC in the IP address range
192.168.1.2 through 192.168.1.253.
If you have configured a static IP address on your PC, you will not be able to connect to the switch. To
obtain an IP address dynamically, you must enable a DHCP client on the management PC you connect to
the switch.
3. Next, open a Web browser and enter the URL http://192.168.1.1 in the address field.
4. On the J-Web login page, type root as the username, leave the password field blank, and click Login.
5. On the Introduction page, click Next.
6. On the Basic Settings page, modify the hostname, the root password, and date and time settings.
First, enter the hostname. This step is optional.
Then, enter a password and re-enter the password.
Then, to modify the date and time settings, select the option Switch date and time. Specify
the time zone. Synchronize the date and time settings of the switch with the management
console or set them manually. This step is also optional.
7. Then, click Next.
8. On the Management Options page, select one of the management scenarios to be configured.

The first is In-band Management--Use VLAN 'default' for management.

o For this option, all data ports are configured as members of the default VLAN. After youve
selected this option, Click Next. Specify the management and gateway IP address for the
default VLAN.

Next is, In-band Management-Create new VLAN for management.


o Select this option to configure only the management interface. Click Next. Specify the IP
address and default gateway for the management interface.

Finally, theres Out-of-band Management-Configure management port.

o After youve selected this option, Click Next. Specify the IP address and gateway of the
management interface. Use this IP address to connect to the switch.
9. Then, click Next
10. On the Manage Access page,
select options to enable Telnet, SSH, and SNMP services.
For SNMP, you can configure the read community, location, and contact.
11. Then, click Next.
12. Finally, the Summary screen displays the configured settings. Click Finish.
The configuration is committed as the active switch configuration. You can now log in with the CLI or the J-Web
interface to continue configuring the switch.
If you use the J-Web interface to continue configuring the switch, the Web session is redirected to the new
management IP address. If the connection cannot be made, the J-Web interface displays instructions for
starting a J-Web session.
After the configuration takes effect, you might lose connectivity between the PC and the switch. To renew the
connection, release and renew the IP address by executing the appropriate commands on the management PC
or by removing and reinserting the Ethernet cable.
You must complete the initial configuration using the J-Web interface within 10 minutes. The switch exits the
EZSetup mode after 10 minutes and reverts to the default factory configuration, and the PC loses connectivity
to the switch. The LEDs on the lower right side of the network ports on the front panel blink when the switch is
in the EZSetup mode.
3.6 Restoring the EX Switch to Factory Default Configuration

There might be several reasons why you would want to restore the EX Series switch to its factory default
configuration. For instance, running EZSetup will work only when the EX Series switch is in factory default
configuration.
Running load factory-default from configuration mode does not allow you to run EZSetup.
Follow these steps to restore the EX switch to factory defaults:

1. First, login as root from console.


2. Then, move or remove the current configuration files. If unsure, then you should always move the files
as specified here.
To move configuration files to a different directory, enter the commands you see here. To remove
configuration files enter the commands you see here. (Make sure you really want to delete these
files.)
3. Then, reboot the switch, as shown here.
4. Login in as root. No password is necessary.
5. Finally, execute exsetup from the root prompt.

Appendix C
Unpacking the EX2200 or EX2200-C

The EX2200 and EX2200-C switches are shipped in a cardboard carton, secured with foam packing material.
The carton has an accessory compartment and contains quick start instructions.
The switch is maximally protected inside the shipping carton. Do not unpack the switch until you are ready to
begin installation.
Begin the installation by unpacking the shipping carton and verify the contents against the inventory of parts
provided. This inventory is also displayed onscreen.
Save the shipping carton and packing materials in case you need to move or ship the switch later.
Appendix D
Preparing the Site for EX2200 or EX2200-C Installation

You can install the EX2200 or EX2200-C on any two-post rack that provides bracket holes or hole patterns
spaced at 1 rack unit increments. The switch is designed for installation in a 19-in. rack.
If you are installing the switch in an enclosed cabinet, make sure the cabinet is large enough to ensure
adequate air flow. See the EX2200 Hardware Guide for detailed clearance specifications.
One pair of mounting brackets for mounting the switch in a two post rack is supplied with each switch. If you
are mounting the switch in a four-post rack, you can order a four-post rack-mount kit separately.
The rack must provide enough room to accommodate the chassis external dimensions. For the EX2200, these
are: 1.75 in. (4.45 cm) high, 17.5 in. (44.5 cm) wide, and 10.5 in. (26.7 cm) deep. The outer edges of the
front-mounting brackets extend the width to 19 in. (48.2 cm).
The EX2200-C-12T measures:
o 1.75 in. (4.45 cm) high;
o 10.6 in. (26.92 cm) wide; and
o 9.0 in. (22.8 cm) deep.

The EX2200-C-12P measures:


o 1.75 in. (4.45 cm) high;
o 10.6 in. (26.92 cm) wide; and
o 9.4 in. (23.8 cm) deep.

Ensure that the spacing of rails and adjacent racks allows for the proper clearance around the switch and rack.
The rack must be properly secured to the structure of the building.
The EX2200 should be mounted at the bottom of the rack if it is the only unit in the rack. In general, you should
load the rack from the bottom to the top with the heaviest component at the bottom of the rack.
For more information on the rack and environmental requirements of the EX2200, refer to the Hardware Guide
at the onscreen link.

Center (JTAC).
Provide the following information in your e-mail message or during the telephone call:
Part number and serial number of component;
Your name, organization name, telephone number, and fax number;
The shipping address for the replacement component, including contact name and phone number; and
Description of the failure.

The support representative validates your request and issues an RMA number for return of the component.
Do not return any hardware until you have received an RMA number. This number is necessary to ensure proper
tracking and handling of returned material at the factory. Juniper Networks reserves the right to refuse
shipments that do not have an RMA. Refused shipments are returned to the shipper through collect freight.
Lastly, pack the device or component for shipment.
If possible, use the original shipping box and packing materials in which the EX-Series Ethernet switch was
originally shipped. If these materials are unavailable, use comparable shipping material, or contact your Juniper
Networks representative for information about approved packaging material.

Locating the EX2200 or EX2200-C Serial Number

Before contacting Juniper Networks to request an RMA, you must find the serial number of the device.
Youll need to provide the serial number to the the Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center when you
contact them to obtain Return Materials Authorization.
If the device is operational and you can access the CLI, you can list serial numbers for the switch and for some
components with a CLI command.
If you do not have access to the CLI, you can locate the serial number ID label on the physical chassis.
To list the EX2200 or EX2200-C chassis details, such as their serial numbers, issue the show chassis hardware
command.
The following output shows the serial number for an EX2200.
You can also find the serial number ID on the device itself.
EX2200 and EX2200-C switches have serial number ID labels located on the rear panel of the chassis.

Obtaining the Return Materials Authorization

If you are returning an EX2200 or EX2200-C Ethernet Switch to Juniper Networks for repair or replacement, you
must contact customer support to obtain an RMA from JTAC.
Do not return any device to Juniper Networks unless you have first obtained an RMA number. Juniper Networks
reserves the right to refuse shipments that do not have an RMA. Refused shipments are returned to the
customer through collect freight.
When requesting technical support from a JTAC representative by phone, be prepared to provide the following
information:
Priority level;
Indication of what activity was being; performed on the device when the problem occurred; and
Problem detail and configuration data.
When a new request for technical support is submitted, the JTAC engineer:

Appendix F
Connecting and Disconnecting a Fiber-Optic Cable
EX Series switches have field-replaceable optical transceivers to which you can connect fiber-optic
cables.
Before you begin connecting a fiber-optic cable to an optical transceiver installed in an EX Series switch,
ensure that you have taken the necessary precautions for safe handling of lasers.
WARNING
Do not look directly into a fiber-optic transceiver or into the ends of fiber-optic cables. Fiber-optic transceivers
and fiber-optic cables connected to transceivers emit laser light that can damage your eyes.

To connect a fiber-optic cable to an optical transceiver installed in an EX Series switch


1. If the fiber-optic cable connector is covered by a rubber safety cap, remove the cap. Save the cap.
2. Remove the rubber safety cap from the optical transceiver. Save the cap.
3. Insert the cable connector into the optical transceiver.
4. Secure the cables so that they are not supporting their own weight. Place excess cable out of the way in
a neatly coiled loop. Placing fasteners on a loop helps cables maintain their shape.
Do not bend fiber-optic cables beyond their minimum bend radius. An arc smaller than a few inches in diameter
can damage the cables and cause problems that are difficult to diagnose.
Do not let fiber-optic cables hang free from the connector. Do not allow fastened loops of cables to dangle,
which stresses the cables at the fastening point.
Before you begin disconnecting a fiber-optic cable from an optical transceiver installed in an EX Series switch,
ensure that you have taken the necessary precautions for safe handling of lasers.
Ensure that you have a rubber safety cap to cover the transceiver and a rubber safety cap to cover the fiber-
optic cable connector available with you.
To disconnect a fiber-optic cable from an optical transceiver installed in the switch, first disable the port in which
the transceiver is installed by issuing the set interface-name disable command.

WARNING
Do not look directly into a fiber-optic transceiver or into the ends of fiber-optic cables. Fiber-optic transceivers
and fiber-optic cables connected to transceivers emit laser light that can damage your eyes.
5. Carefully unplug the fiber-optic cable connector from the transceiver.
6. Cover the transceiver with a rubber safety cap.
WARNING
Do not leave a fiber-optic transceiver uncovered except when inserting or removing a cable. The rubber safety
cap keeps the port clean and prevents accidental exposure to laser light.
7. Finally, cover the fiber-optic cable connector with the rubber safety cap.
Appendix G

Replacing a Transceiver

SFPs and XFP are


Optical transceivers that can be installed in host cards in the EX2200 line.
SFPs and XFP are hot-insertable and hot-removable.
Removing an SFP or XFP does not interrupt host card functioning, but the
Removed SFP or XFP no longer receives or transmits data.
We strongly recommend the use of Juniper Networks SFP and SFP+ transceivers. We cannot guarantee correct
operation if other transceivers are used. The transceiver type can be different in each port, as long as a
supported part number is used.
To replace an SFP or XFP transceiver:
1. First, have ready
A replacement transceiver or a transceiver slot plug,
An electrostatic box or bag,
A rubber safety cap for the transceiver, and
A dust cover to cover the port.
2. Label the cables connected to the transceiver so that you can reconnect them correctly later.
3. Now, remove the cable connector plugged into the transceiver.
4. Carefully arrange the disconnected cables to prevent the cable from developing stress points.
5. Pull the ejector handle out from the transceiver to unlock the transceiver.
Make sure that you open the ejector handle completely until you hear it click. This prevents damage to the
transceiver. If necessary, use needle-nose pliers to pull the ejector handle out from the SFP.
6. Grasp the transceiver and pull it approximately 0.5 in. (1.3 cm) out of the host card.
7. Using your fingers, grasp the body of the transceiver and pull it the rest of the way out of the card.
8. Place a rubber safety cap over the empty transceiver port.
9. Close the transceivers ejector handle.
10. Place a rubber safety cap over the transceiver.
11. Place the removed transceiver on an antistatic mat or in an electrostatic box.

To avoid electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage to the transceiver, do not touch the connector pins at the end of
the transceiver.

12. Then, take each new transceiver to be installed out of its electrostatic box.
13. Remove the rubber safety cap from the transceiver and open the ejector lever.

WARNING
Do not leave a fiber-optic transceiver uncovered except when inserting or removing a cable. The rubber safety
cap keeps the port clean and prevents accidental exposure to laser light.
14. Remove the safety cap from the empty transceiver port.
15. Carefully align the transceiver with the slot in the card. The connectors should face the card.

Before you slide the transceiver into the port, ensure the transceiver is aligned correctly. Misalignment might
cause the pins to bend, making the transceiver unusable.

16. Slide the transceiver until the connector is seated in the card slot. If you are unable to fully insert the
transceiver, make sure the connector is facing the right way.
17. Close the ejector handle of the transceiver.
18. Remove the rubber safety caps from the ends of the cable. Reconnect the cables into the transceivers.
19. Verify that
The status LEDs on the card faceplate indicate that the SFP or XFP is functioning correctly.
You can also verify that the card is functioning by issuing the show chassis fpc pic-status
command.

Initial Steps To Be Performed


Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the
ESD points on the chassis. Then, continue the process of replacing the transceivers.
WARNING
Do not look directly into a fiber-optic transceiver or into the end of a fiber-optic cable. Fiber-optic transceivers
contain laser light sources that can damage your eyes.
Avoid bending fiber-optic cable beyond its minimum bend radius. An arc smaller than a few inches in diameter
can damage the cable and cause problems that are difficult to diagnose.
