I have around 10 remote site with 10 firewalls to apply management for all f/w which is better from the following:
1- manage from the assigned IP for the trust zone
2- advertising a management x.x.x.x/30 subnets in all routers for managing f/w

Option 1 will mean that all access will need to come from the trust side, ie no remote mgmt, you will need to be either within the LAN or VPNed in.

Option 2 is possible but it a pain to manage, ie if any network changes take place, its a lot of work to manually update all of them.

Have you considered using mgmt software, ie Network and Security Manager (NSM)?  NSM comes into its own when you have around 10 devices to manage and especially if they are all ISGs, the size of your network seems to warrant it.

However, I would go for option 1 but with a secondary option of SSH open on untrust interface using a different manage-ip and also incorporate manager-ip to limit the access to a set of specific hosts.

The manage-ip is an extra IP on the interface that you use to connect to via web, ssh, ssl etc, all configured under the service options.

This manes that you can manage the box using a different IP from the actual interface IP.

The manager-ip is the IP address of known and trusted hosts that you want to be able to manage the box from.

This works on all screenos devices, so the ISG and SSG makes no difference at all here.

Have a look at www.junper.net/techpubs and drill down into screenos for the versions you are running.  The admin guide will shed some more light on the details here, but the essence is above.
