VSRX : ge-0/0/x down

  • 1.  VSRX : ge-0/0/x down

    Posted 02-01-2019 06:51

    Hello.

    I'm playing with vSRX (with active service contract) and I am totally stuck with Junos: 18.4R1.8.

    1. I exported my configuration file

    2. I deployed a brand new VM

    3. I put 16Go ram and 8 vpu according the vSRX Deployment Guide

    4. I injected the configuration with an iso 

     

    The configuration is loaded, I can connect with the fxp0 interface but all ge-0/0/x interfaces are down

    The VMware configuration is correct : The VMXNET 3 interfaces are connected

    The show interfaces terse commande reports no interface :

    user@vSRX-SG-01> show interfaces terse

    ppe0 up up
    st0 up up
    tap up up
    vlan up down
    vtep up up

     

    what should I do to recover my interfaces ?

     

    Thanks

    Looks like PFE is in offline state. Please check:

    show chassis fpc pic-status

    show chassis alarm

    show system core

    fpc is offline. Please check the license "show system licenses" and ensure all the interfaces are VMXnet type only.

    Hi,

     

    It may need some log review etc so better to open a case if you can.

     

    1. I exported my configuration file

    2. I deployed a brand new VM

    3. I put 16Go ram and 8 vpu according the vSRX Deployment Guide

    Vikas - Are you trying to spin up vSRX-L ? 9 vCPUs are needed for vSRX-L BTW.

    4. I injected the configuration with an iso

    Vikas - How are you injecting the config in the ISO ? Cloud-init etc . Can you try zerozing the device and check ?

     

    Thanks,

    Vikas

    Hello Vikas,

     

    I have not experience with vSRX, I only worked with SRX240H.

    I used the vSRX Deployment Guide for VMware. I put 16Gb RAM according to Table 4: Specifications for vSRX on VMware

    I have a french keyboard and it hard to type commands thus I mounted an iso cd to start an initial config and works with SSH commands ("Starting in Junos OS Release 15.1X49-D40 and Junos OS Release 17.3R1, you can use a
    mounted ISO image to pass the initial startup Junos OS configuration to a vSRX VM.")

     

    I will follow the advices :

    1. I will deploy media-vsrx-vmdisk-15.1X49-D160.2.ide (I had junos-media-vsrx-x86-64-vmdisk-18.4R1.8.ide)

    2. Il will check the presence of the ge-0/x interfaces

    3. If OK I will inject the correct config files

    I'll keep you informed

    Regards

    As agreed I did several tests :

    1.Deploying junos-media-vsrx-x86-64-vmdisk-18.4R1.8.ide without any configuration

    -> show interface terse : shows no interface ge-0/0/X

     

    2.Deploying jmedia-vsrx-vmdisk-15.1X49-D160.2.ide without any configuration

    -> show interface terse report interface ge-0/0/X : The command correctly reports the interfaces

    I imported my configuration with an iso file and all is OK

     

    The junos-media-vsrx-x86-64-vmdisk-18.4R1.8.ide firwamre is buggy, at least with my vmware environment

    The 18.3 worked properly

    I will wait for the 19.1 version 🙂

     

    Best regards

    Hi,

     

    Looks like you are tying to install vSRX2 in 18.4R1 version. If you need 18.4R1 specifically then Can you please try vSRX3 instead which has the better RE boot time etc:   junos-vsrx3-x86-64-18.4R1.8.ide.ova

     

    Thanks,

    Vikas

    Hello Vikas

     

    All is OK with junos-vsrx3-x86-64-18.4R1.8.ide.ova with 5vCPU and 16Go. 

    For information, with 9vCPU no ge-0/0/x interfaces goes up 

     

    Thanks for your help

     

    Regards

    Hi,

     

    I quickly tried vSRX-3 in LAB with 9 vCPU and 16GB RAM with 3 default vNICs . It spawn up fine and has 2 ge interfaces without any issue.  It may need some troubleshooting and log review in your environment , please open a case if you need vSRX  Large flavor.

     

    Thanks,
