PA-7050 Front Panel (AC)
The following image shows the front panel of the PA-7050 firewall (with AC power supplies installed) and the table describes each front panel component.
Exhaust and intake fan trays (first-generation fan tray shown)
Provides ventilation and cooling for the chassis. While facing the front of the firewall, air enters from the left and exits to the right.
There are two PA-7050 fan tray models:
During normal operation, the Power LED on the fan tray is green and the Fault LED is off. If an individual fan fails on the fan tray, the Power LED turns off and the Fault LED turns red.
For information on replacing a fan tray, see Replace a PA-7050 Fan Tray.
Switch Management Card (SMC) (first-generation SMC shown)
Provides management access to the chassis using a serial console cable connected to the Console port or an RJ-45 cable connected to the management (MGT) port. The SMC also has high availability (HA) ports and LED indicators that provide information on various chassis components. The SMC also stores PAN-OS, the configuration, and management logs (
IMPORTANT:The SMC is required to operate the chassis and on a PA-7050 firewall, it must be installed in slot 4.
The SMC-B is shipped with four copper 1G transceivers for use in the MGT-A, MGT-B, HA1-A, and HA1-B ports. You can use these or replace them with a transceiver of your choice.
There are two PA-7050 SMC models as described in PA-7000 Series Firewall Switch Management Cards (SMCs).
The PAN-OS® software is preinstalled on the embedded solid-state drive (SSD) on the SMC.
Filters air entering the chassis. Periodically inspect the filter to ensure it is clean. The filter is not designed to be cleaned and it is recommended that you replace it every six months (depending on the environment).
If the firewall has the second-generation fan trays installed (PA-7050-FANTRAY-L-A on the left and the PA-7050-FANTRAY-R-A), the air filter is inserted into the right fan tray (PA-7050-FANTRAY-R-A).
Network Processing Card (NPC)
Provides network connectivity.
On a PA-7050 firewall, you can install up to six NPCs (in slots 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, and/or 7). You must have at least one NPC installed before the firewall can process network traffic.
For more information, see PA-7000 Series Firewall Network Processing Cards (NPCs).
There are two log card models that you can install:
IMPORTANT: You must have an LFC or LPC installed in slot 8 for chassis operation.
For more information, see PA-7000 Series Firewall Log Cards.
AC power supplies
Provides power to the chassis using an AC power source.
For information on connecting power, see Connect Power to a PA-7000 Series Firewall.
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) ports
Provides a grounding point that you use when removing or installing chassis components. Secure the provided wrist strap end of the ESD strap around your wrist and plug the other end into one of the ESD ports.
