vSRX - Cluster ESXi Port Groups

    Hey All,

    Has anyone here installed a pair of vSRXs into a cluster in a DVS on ESXi?

    Reading the documentation, it looks like I just need a vlan for the fxp0, for the fabric, and then 1 for each RETH that I make.

    So, 4 in total.

    However, I can't get the chassis cluster config to take with the "set system chassis cluster 0 node 0 reboot" and "set system chassis cluster 0 node 1 reboot"

    On reboot, I get a "chassis cluster is not enabled" when trying to check the status on a "node"

     

    Any thoughts?

    Hi RoutingFrames, 

     

    Greetings, 

    On the vSRX VM, vSRX stores and reads the IDs from boot/loader.conf and uses the IDs to initialize the chassis cluster during startup. Did you enable the chassis cluster configuration before reboot ?

     

    set chassis cluster cluster-id 1 node 0 reboot
    set chassis cluster cluster-id 1 node 1 reboot

    I believe you are using the below link for provisioning the vSRX cluster:

    HI,

     

    are you saying cluster 0 is not usable? I have to use cluster 1?

    Hi RoutingFrame, 

     

    A cluster is identified by a cluster ID (cluster-id) specified as a number from 1 through 255. Setting a cluster ID to 0 is equivalent to disabling a cluster.

    Hope this helps.

    Wow.

     

    I got so used to the "0" being a part of Junos, I just assumed I could use it as the first node! 

     

    cluster is up!

    Hi RoutingFrames

     

    Yes, usually 0 comes up as for all the normal usage but in case of chassis cluster 0 means clustering mode is disabled.

    Glad that it helped.
