Install the PA-7050 Firewall in the Mid-Mount Position

The following procedure describes how to install the PA-7050 firewall in a mid-mount position.
The PA-7050 chassis and the front slot cards (SMC, LPC or LFC, NPC) ship in separate boxes and it is recommended that you install the cards after you rack-mount the chassis. This will prevent any damage to the cards that could occur during rack mounting and will reduce the chassis weight. To further reduce the chassis weight, remove the fan trays and front power supplies.
  1. (
    Optional
    ) Install the mid-mount cable management brackets using the fives screws included with the bracket.
  2. Position the chassis into the rack using two or more people and if available, use a mechanical equipment lift.
  3. Align the rack-mount bracket mounting holes on each side of the chassis with the holes on the rack rail, ensuring that the chassis is level.
  4. Attach the rack-mount brackets to the rack using rack-mount screws (not provided) and tighten with a screwdriver. Install four screws on each side of the chassis.
