Running JUNOS 11.4R12, I'm attempting to use a 4GB CompactFlash card in an SRX650, while I recognise the documentation indicates a 2GB should be used, they are proving hard to source locally where I am.
Following along the document here Backing Up an Installation Using Snapshots (Junos OS) | Junos OS | Juniper Networks for the SRX650 and booting off USB, enabling external CF in u-boot, the SRX seems to identify there is a CF there but thinks there is no space on it:
Routing Engine REV 18 750-xxxx yyyyy RE-SRXSME-SRE6 ad1 0 MB
Routing Engine REV 18 750-xxxx yyyyy RE-SRXSME-SRE6

> request system snapshot media external partition error: external (/dev/ad1) is too small. Size must be atleast 1GB
> request system snapshot media external partition
error: external (/dev/ad1) is too small. Size must be atleast 1GB
Have tried a few variations on formatting the 4GB CF, formatted with 4 & 2GB (FAT) partitions using windows diskpart.
Has anyone had success in a similar scenario, or have any suggestions on other things to try here?
Thanks in advance.
There are some old srx650 specific format instructions that use a boot to USB then snapshot method outlined here.
Thanks, but I've tried that with no luck (same as in the more recent instructions I linked).
