I am working with a vSRX (version 18.3R1.9) and I can not configure the interface fxp0.
The interface is on the first network adapter. The " show interface fxp0 " command gives the same mac address as on the configuration of the virtual machine
The network adapter is on the 201 tagged VLAN.
On the same ESX, if I put a virtual machine on the same network (vlan 201) it works properly but with fxp0.0 I can’t reach the gateway
Could the problem be that I have not yet added the serial number of the vSRX ?
Any ideas ????
Go to Solution.
Have you enabled promiscous mode on the vSwitch?
This is mentioned in the deployment guide for VMware on page 26 (https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/vsrx/information-products/pathway-pages/security-vsrx-vm...)
NOTE: For the management interface, fxp0, VMware uses the VMXNET3 vNIC and requires promiscuous mode on the vSwitch.
fxp0 interface does not support tagged vlans. Ensure that fxp0 is receiving untagged packets
Thanks Nellikka et jonashauge for your help
Actually I had missed the promiscuous mode on the vSwitch.
Now it works fine the fxp0 interface
