    Hello guys,

     

    can someone help me to figure out how to configure vSRX as cluster please ? i understood which interfaces to ue for th eFabric link , but my issue is with the control link still struguling to understand how to do it as in documentation is mention em0 , but it seems no physical connection like fabric link no ?

    Hi Fadito,

     

    I haven't done it my self but as far as I could see/investigate it can be done following the conventional method, just make sure you meet the pre-requisites and be aware of a few caveats using EVE :

    Caveat: Clustering on Juniper SRX with EVE

     
    For SRX to support clustering, here are few things to keep in mind 
     
    The SRX in Cluster mode runs fairly well on EVE , however the interface mappings on EVE is different than regular. This is due to the SRX getting a new interface (em0) as second interface Card – so if you select ge-0/0/0 in EVE, you really select em0.
     
    EVE is platform and is Clustering unaware. So you will have to tweak a few things 
     
    From top down the first Interface in EVE is fxp0, the second Interface is em0, the third is ge-0/0/0 or 7/0/0, the fourth is ge-0/0/1 or 7/0/1 and so on (see the Table below from Juniper)

    Thanks LilDexx ! 

     

    appreciated ! i will check it again and see how to proceed as it seems a bit copmlex task mainly du eto the fact EVE is platform and is Clustering unaware. 

     

    cheers !

    Thanks Lildexx.

    I have been trying to get a basic cluster setup and operational today and for the life of me I couldn't understand why it wouldn't come up. I kept googling around and nothing. I then stumbled upon your reply post - this has fixed it and the cluster is working in eve-n.

    Thank you.
