Adding SRX cluster as virtual chassis into NSM

There are two options that you can use to add an SRX cluster into NSM:

  • You will add each nodes separately by using their fxp0 interface IP addresses
  • You will configure virtual chassis and add the entire cluster as a single node

As the topic of this post is virtual chassis, set the following configuration at SRX side;

root@srx210-1#set chassis cluster network-management cluster-master

Then add a new device NOT a cluster in NSM device view by using the redundant interface (e.g reth0) IP address of the SRX cluster. In the end you will see a single device instead of two-node cluster like below;

NSM 2010.3s9
Junos 11.4R5.5
