SRX branch - is it possible to disable auto-power-on?

‎02-15-2017 07:41 AM

Hi,

I'm about to create a SRX cluster with 2 SRX240 over a switched network.

A potential scenario I've heard about is when there is a power-cut, one site goes down, fine.

But when the power returns the SRX will boot quicker than the switch and causing a split brain once the network is back.

Is it possible to set the SRX not to boot up once power returns. Like it would be possible with a PC in bios...

 

Any other ideas is of course welcome!

A good UPS will solve Your problem and also provides protection from SRX flash corruption after back-to-back power cuts.

Its not possible and its recommended to avoid such power issues as it can corrupt the device file system and may be the device itself.
