Dear members;

 

Has anyone succeded in adding ge-x/x/x interfaces to vSRX 15.....because it seems vSRX does not detect interfaces both in ESXi and KVM...

 

Regards.

Hello,

 

I have successfully added 7 NICs to my vSRX without any issues on ESXi.

I have referred this link for the same.

Hi, 

 

I have same issue and fpc0 reports "CPU less FPC":

root# run show version

JUNOS Software Release [15.1X49-D40.6]

[edit]

i have manged to add interfaces on vSRX 15.1 D50.3......Cat Happy

 

But am now not able to use more than one interfaces....like they are visible.. but not operational..they are up/up  but do not respond/find arp's..of any interfaces including E1000 E1000E VMXNET2/3.....Cat Mad

 

this means that no ping is working..... Smiley Sad

 

Even after adding arp's statically it is not pinging...looks like some issue of L2 (ARP) in these VSRX images....

 

Atleast juniper should focus more on VSRX image quality..rather than high volume of VMXNET interfaces..whihc has rendered this vSRX totally unusable....

 

Moreover, in KVM interfaces are also not showing...

 

Please has anyone managed to solve this issue?

 

Regards.

hello ,

 

If the interfaces are up and not responding  on Vsrx for 15.1 release

 

Vmware Esxi

you need to do the workaroubd for interface re ordering if more than 3 interfaces are selected 

 

http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/vsrx15.1x49/topics/task/configuration/security-vsrx-vmware-add...

 

KVM 

 

if the interfaces dont come up ,make sure you map it to bridge interface which in turn is mapped to a either 1G/10G port.

Ashok

Hi,

 

This thread is a bit old, but I'll share my case anyway. I had exactly the same problem running vsrx 15.1D50 on a kvm hypervisor. I figured that running the vm with 4096 MB of memory was not enough. The ge interfaces appeared once I allocated 4194 MB to the vm.

 

Hope this helps

Hi

 

I had the same issue - but when I tried booting the 15.1X49-D100 my interfaces where up and I saw the FPC like this:

"
