SRX cluster fxp0 interface routing doubt

Hi, all,

 

We have SRX240 cluster in remote office setup, we use in-band for management, I want to configure nagios to check healthy of both nodes by pinging node specfic IP address,  without burning an extra data port on each node, I am thinking to make use of ge-0/0/0 of each node, which is dedicated to fxp0, but fxp0 interface does not do routing, i.e, I can not ping the fxp0 IPs from different subnets they are in. Is it possible to achieve what I want to do with fxp0 interface?

 

Thanks,

Hello,

You can accomplish your requirement via backup-router config on secondary node i.e routing via FXP0.

You may add specific destination route for primary node which takes traffic via its fxp0.
