SRX1500 Using DHCP Services for multiple VLAN along with all other functionality
Can someone please guide me regarding the following scenario.
I have been asked to use the SRX1500 for DHCP services for multiple vlans. When doing so I have to make a trunk connection to pass vlan tagged packets between the core switch and firewall. This results the firewall to use L2 interface and hence move to Transparent mode.

My take on this is to configure vlan tagging on one of the ports on SRX 1500 with your corresponding vlans configured on your core switch (trunk) . This port will be your trunk port downward to your core switch ;
ex: on srx 1500, lets say module is on slot 3.
set interface ge-3/0/0 vlan-tagging
set interface ge-3/0/0.100 vlan-id 100
set interface ge-3/0/0.100 family inet address 10.10.10.100/23
>you can enable dhcp on this vlan 100 interface ge-3/0/0.100
>make sure dhcp service is enabled on the subinterface (host-inbound services)
>make sure your core switch has dhcp-helper or options enabled.
