    Hello 

     

    I am testing the clustering feature on a SRX1500 by connecting it a Virtual chassis EX4600. However, i cannot obtain basic ip connectivity between the reth0.0 to the AE0. 

     

     

    Thank you for taking the time to check. Any ideas?

    Hi, I need to see the SRX interface config and to be complete the chassis config as well.

     

    But in a nutshell this should be a sample of what you need, be carefull not to confuse the RETH interfaces with LAG/LACP Interfaces.

     

    FYI: The LAG interfaces need to stay on the same SRX, you cannot configure a single LAG spanning across two SRX's. If you are only using two interfaces in your reth interface you cannot run a LAG. Then you have a simple interface configured as a access or trunk interface on the EX side mathcing your config on the SRX.

     

    In order for your config to work you would need two interface connected to reth0 on one SRX and another two interfaces connected to reth0 on the second SRX as below. These individual pairs will be connected to your AE interfaces on the EX.


    SRX Config:
    set interfaces ge-3/0/0 gigether-options redundant-parent reth0
    set interfaces ge-3/0/1 gigether-options redundant-parent reth0
    set interfaces ge-15/0/0 gigether-options redundant-parent reth0
    set interfaces ge-15/0/1 gigether-options redundant-parent reth0
    set interfaces reth0 redundant-ether-options redundancy-group 1
    set interfaces reth0 redundant-ether-options lacp passive
    set interfaces reth0 redundant-ether-options lacp periodic slow


    EX Config:
    set chassis aggregated-devices ethernet device-count 10
    set interfaces ge-0/0/0 ether-options 802.3ad ae1
    set interfaces ge-0/0/2 ether-options 802.3ad ae1
    set interfaces ge-0/0/1 ether-options 802.3ad ae2
    set interfaces ge-0/0/3 ether-options 802.3ad ae2
    set interfaces ae1 aggregated-ether-options lacp active
    set interfaces ae2 aggregated-ether-options lacp active
    set interfaces ae1 aggregate-ether-options lacp periodic slow
    set interfaces ae2 aggregate-ether-options lacp periodic slow

     

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for the explanation. The problem was i was connecting the EX AE0 physical links to the virtual srx node 0 and node 1. I configured the link without LACP and regular trunk interface and it worked. 

     

    Thank you
