I'm playing with vSRX (with active service contract) and I am totally stuck with Junos: 18.4R1.8.
1. I exported my configuration file
2. I deployed a brand new VM
3. I put 16Go ram and 8 vpu according the vSRX Deployment Guide
4. I injected the configuration with an iso
The configuration is loaded, I can connect with the fxp0 interface but all ge-0/0/x interfaces are down
The VMware configuration is correct : The VMXNET 3 interfaces are connected
The show interfaces terse commande reports no interface :

I have not experience with vSRX, I only worked with SRX240H.
I used the vSRX Deployment Guide for VMware. I put 16Gb RAM according to Table 4: Specifications for vSRX on VMware
I have a french keyboard and it hard to type commands thus I mounted an iso cd to start an initial config and works with SSH commands ("Starting in Junos OS Release 15.1X49-D40 and Junos OS Release 17.3R1, you can use a mounted ISO image to pass the initial startup Junos OS configuration to a vSRX VM.")
I will follow the advices :
1. I will deploy media-vsrx-vmdisk-15.1X49-D160.2.ide (I had junos-media-vsrx-x86-64-vmdisk-18.4R1.8.ide)
2. Il will check the presence of the ge-0/x interfaces
Looks like you are tying to install vSRX2 in 18.4R1 version. If you need 18.4R1 specifically then Can you please try vSRX3 instead which has the better RE boot time etc: junos-vsrx3-x86-64-18.4R1.8.ide.ova
I quickly tried vSRX-3 in LAB with 9 vCPU and 16GB RAM with 3 default vNICs . It spawn up fine and has 2 ge interfaces without any issue. It may need some troubleshooting and log review in your environment , please open a case if you need vSRX Large flavor.
