srx110h2 HA options

‎07-14-2016 04:28 AM

Hi,

 

I have two srx110h2 boxes connected to two ex4200 switches (which are in VC mode). I understand chassis cluster is not supported for some reason on the srx110h2? Why?

 

What are my HA options then? VRRP for the clients behind them? reth for the untrust/trust side?

 

Really surprised.

 

Thanks.

Hello,

 

 

SRX110 is not supported for chassis clustering becasue of various hardware and software reasons since its very inception.

 

Yes, You can use VRRP on SRX 110 for redundancy. Please refer the below documents for the same:-

Thanks. Surely it can do the same but more than the SRX100, which is supported?

I really don't believe this now. In the O'Reilly Juniper SRX Book p291:

 

On the SRX100, SRX110, SRX210, and SRX220, a 100 MB Ethernet link is accept‐
able for the data link.

 

Why would they have that in there?

Hello,

 

 

I am not sure how did that happen and why do the book have it in their but please refer the below Juniper verified public Links which clearly state that SRX 110 does nto supports Chassis Cluster.

 

http://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos12.1x44/topics/reference/general/security-feature-ch...

 

http://kb.juniper.net/library/CUSTOMERSERVICE/GLOBAL_JTAC/NT260/SRX_HA_Deployment_Guide_v1.2.pdf (Refer Note in Table 1 on Page 11)

 

http://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB15356&actp=search (This KB tells us that there are no control or fabric links on SRX110)

 

On a side note i would like to inform you that SRX100 does support Chassis cluster and it is only SRX110 which does not support it.

 

Thanks,
