  • 1.  SRX4200 alarm FPC Inefficient Port Mapping

    Posted 03-29-2022 05:50
    Hi guys

    I have a pair of srx4200 running cluster. On node 1, there is an alarm as follows:

    {primary:node0}
    SRX42000>show chassis alarms
    node0:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    No alarms currently active

    node1:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1 alarms currently active
    Alarm time Class Description
    2022-03-29 00:59:46 -07 Minor FPC Inefficient Port Mapping

    I don't see any information about it, what should I do to solve this problem

    Thank!

    We recently purchased a new pair of SRX4200s. I chose to do a quick test of physical ports prior to preparing for deployment. That seemed to go ok, but I wasn't sure how to test the CTL and FAB HA ports.
    https://www.juniper.net/documentation/us/en/hardware/srx4200/topics/topic-map/srx4200-chassis.html

    While I was doing that (port test), I noticed that the Status Light was not working, I put in a JTAC ticket in case there was some way to manually manipulate and test that light. I was told to reboot, then upgrade to the suggested version.
    While I was doing that (upgrade), I noticed that the red status light was intermittently coming on and going off in no specific pattern (I have video). In the end the status light still does not work AND I wondered if there were any alarms, which I could not tell due to the faulty status light. It turns out that I also got

    root> show chassis alarms
    1 alarms currently active
    Alarm time Class Description
    2022-09-30 01:25:45 UTC Minor FPC Inefficient Port Mapping

    I suspect this is a "feature" of the suggested version (It's on 21.2R3-S2.9), as I have not changed this SRX from the default configuration. I just wanted to let others know.

    Hopefully my reseller will get me a new "new SRX4200".

    @NAM PHAM, what version are you on?

    We are running into the exact same issue.  I'm convinced it's a bug.

    We have two brand new SRX4200's, both booted fresh with zero issues, zero alarms etc.  Built out a default chassis cluster and now have the exact same error you're showing.

    To test I broke apart the cluster and the error cleared from the node.

    We are on 22.2R1.9

    What's strange for us is this started on node1 and then eventually happened on node0 as well.  It's like node0 inherited the error.
