Hello, I'm trying to setup 2 vsrx version 18.4R2.7 clustered running on esxi 6.5. Following along with vsrx deployment guide and I have yet to get a stable setup. I have verified the the "Exposure HW assist to virtualization to the guest OS" is checked (on by default) and 1 CPU socket is set.
I have setup a separte vSwitch for each nic/adapter configuration but the best I seem is a good cluster but only ge-0/0/0 showing. As soon as they are clusted ge-0/0/1 disappears and even unclusted has yet to regsister adapter 4.
The settings below seem to produce the best results but what am I missing?
Please check the adapter type and make sure they fulfil the requirements mentioned in the link below. Also , I would expect the first network adapter to be a VMXNET 3 adapter and be identified as fxp0 not ge-0/0/0.
The mapping given in your first post looks incorrect. The HA control ports would not have any Physical Adapters.
Please try the steps given at the following link: -
I do not have any physical adapters other than the the mgmt/adapter 1. All others are set as stated in your link. You will see under active adapters I have none other than for vmnic0. Has anyone else got this to run with esxi6.5? I even tried setting them up as stated under this link but it also caused the ge interfaces to disappear.

I'm embaressed to write this but it was the vmxnet3 was not set for the additional network adapters 3 and 4. The system selects flexible for anything higher than than 1-3 and that was the issue. I thought I had checked this (repeatedly). I only discovered this when I attempted to run vSRX version 15 and it wouldn't load completely. This discussion can be solved/closed, thanks to all who responded.
Glad to hear that issue is resolved.
Hope you enjoy working on vSRX. 🙂
