How to add an SRX cluster to Security Director

The method that I follow currently when adding an SRX cluster to Junos Space/Security Director is as follows;

1) Discover the devices under Platform->Devices->Device Discovery->Discover Targets
by using fxp0 (or management IP addresses) of each device.

Once the devices are added we will have them under device management;


2) Once you go to Security Director->Security Director Devices
You will see that cluster nodes are detected as a single entry (cluster) there.


After this point everything is the same like a normal device import/update for which you can check my other SD post here

One thought on “How to add an SRX cluster to Security Director”

  1. I’ve followed your steps and yet find it as two single devices on the security directory platform. I can see the existence of a virtual chassis and schema mismatch. Could this be a reason?

    Please do advice. Great blog post not much out there on security devices!
