vSRX 17.3 taking Boot time of around 10 -12 Minutes on RHEL Openstack
I am trying to automate creation and configuration of Juniper SRX using API and currently i am using a vSRX 17.3 image snapshot ( only fxp0 config part of the snapshot to expose the netconf interface on bootup for configuration bu orchestrator). i am experiencing high boot time with the image. Its taking around 10 minutes to boot up and an additional 2-3 minutes for the interface to respond to ping and netconf requests.
Is there anyway to minimize the boot time. I see in the boot log that it gets stuck at Loading configuration for a long time. Previously i have used version 12 which used to boot up in 2 minutes for the same usecase. What is the default boot time of vSRX v17.3 and also are there any other recent versions which boots up fast?
