Does latest junos D110 on SRX can assign fxp0 into VR?

Hi all,

 

 

Im reading this url https://kb.juniper.net/library/CUSTOMERSERVICE/GLOBAL_JTAC/SRX-cluster-monitoring-best-practices.pdf... and i'm interested on page 79.

 

May i know whether using the latest junos D110 we can assign fxp0 into VR and using the same segment with reth interface. In other word we use reverse on page 79.

 

I'm using SRX5800 chassis cluster setup.

 

 

Thanks and appreciate any feedback

Hi kronicklez,

 

Unfortunately not - D110 still doesn't let you add fxp0 to a routing-instance.

 

This feature was addded to mainline Junos in 17.1R1, so you'd need to upgrade your SRX to 17.1.

 

set system management-instance

Will place fxp0 into a dedicated routing-instance called mgmt_junos (you can't created a custom instance):

 

root@lab-srx1500> show route

inet.0: 2 destinations, 2 routes (2 active, 0 holddown, 0 hidden)
+ = Active Route, - = Last Active, * = Both

192.168.4.1/32     *[Local/0] 00:45:14
                      Reject
192.168.5.1/32     *[Local/0] 00:45:14
                      Reject

mgmt_junos.inet.0: 2 destinations, 2 routes (2 active, 0 holddown, 0 hidden)
+ = Active Route, - = Last Active, * = Both

10.0.9.0/24        *[Direct/0] 00:17:20
                    > via fxp0.0
10.0.9.248/32      *[Local/0] 00:17:20
                      Local via fxp0.0

17.1 on the SRX (1500 at least) is still a bit fresh for deployment - while I was labbing this up, I got kicked to the db> prompt, so I wouldn't rush out to upgrade your production system just yet Smiley Wink

 

Hope this helps

Hi Kronicklez,

 

17.3R1 was released for SRX-series late august and covers all features for available in 15.1X49-D80. My impression is that this version is quite stable (at least I haven't heard about any).

 

So if you don't have any very special configuration I would go with 17.3R1  - and this will give you the management routing-instance you are looking for :-)

I'm not sure if you read the bit at the end of my post, btu 17.3 dumped me at the db> prompt straight out of Junos, so yeah - I'd leave it until R3 or so before deploying it.

 

D110 is my go to version at the moment.  That's not to say it's perfect, but it's the least bad version in the 15.1 train.

I read and didn't think it through... you wrote 17.1 - but there never was a 17.1 release for SRX :-)

 

Regarding R3... the new scheme for releases is only doing a R1 and R2 for 17.3 and then we are on to 17.4R1.

This is already seen on eg MX where 17.1 and 17.2 only has a R1 and R2 release.
