Install the PA-7080 Firewall in the Mid-Mount Position
The following procedures describe how to install
the PA-7080 firewall in a mid-mount position. Both rack‑mount bracket
types (mid-mount and front-mount) are preinstalled. For a mid-mount
install, you must remove the front-mount brackets.
PA-7080 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 the chassis is rack mounted. This will prevent any damage
to the cards that could occur during rack mounting and will reduce
the weight of the chassis.
Remove eight screws from each front-mount bracket (one
left and one right) and then remove the brackets.
) Install the upper and lower cable
management brackets using the provided screws (8 upper bracket screws
and 4 lower bracket screws). The upper bracket is designed for Ethernet
cables and the console cable and the lower bracket is designed for
fiber optic cables. To access the screw holes on the lower bracket,
open the door located at the front of the bracket as shown in the
Position the chassis into the rack using two or more
people and if available, use a mechanical equipment lift.
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. Secure the chassis to the rack using eight rack‑mount
screws (not included) on each side of the chassis and tighten with
a Phillips-head screwdriver.
