fxp0 on SRX300 - SRX packet-mode OOB management

    Is it possible to convert one of the revenue (ge-) interfaces to fxp0 (management interface) without actually forming a cluster?

    I need this kind of interface for secure OOB management. Unfortunately SRX300-SRX320 have no dedicated fxp0.

    I know I could:

    - use a management zone to emulate fxp behavior -> but the device is in packet-mode... 

    - just put the interface in a separater VR and forgetr about it

     

    I am just looking for more elegant solution.

    Re-configure the device in in flow mode and use Selective stateless packet-based services which allow you to simultaneously use both flow-based and packet-based forwarding on a system. In this case you can use managment zone

    I don't think there is a way to do that.  ge-0/0/0 automatically becomes fxp0 when you create a cluster of SRX300s, but you only have one SRX, right?  You could consider turning clustering on, even if you have one SRX, BUT, you would lose ge-0/0/1 as a revenue port, as ge-0/0/1 becomes fxp1 (control link) when you turn on clustering. 

     

    I would say your best option is the routing instance since you are in packet mode.

    Yeah, I will use routing instance for the revenue ports and leave only management interface in the default one.
