Hi Experts,

I have a few questions regarding configuring HA on Juniper SRX650.

1. How do I remotely manage SRX650?
2. Is reth1.0 IP 1.2.0.233 actually the WAN IP in the network diagram in the KB article?

Thanks,

Jimmy

You manage the SRX cluster using the fxp0 interface.  This is designed as the management network for "out of band" managemet.

IN the diagram you posted, the reth1.0 is indeed the wan connection.

The reth is a psuedo interface made up of 2 child interfaces, 1 on each node,  Think of it is like an active passive interface, where only one interface on one node is the active reth in the diagram.

For the management of the node, configure the fxp0 interface

Thanks deimark,
So that means I need to configure a WAN IP on fxp0 for remote management, is that correct?

Nope. The fxp0 is ONLY for management bud. It cannot be used for transit traffic.

Clustering on srx requires 3 clustering interfaces. The mgmt link on fxp0 and also 2 sync connections for the control and data planes. None of these cluster links can be used for production traffic. It is a bit of a drawback that on the branch office devices you end up losing 3 revenue ports for the clustering but on the high end devices the mgmt and control connections are on specific ports.

Thanks again, and I guess I have a little confusion regarding "management"
Since fxp0 is for management, do I physically connect it somewhere?
If I want to configure the firewall via J-Web portal through the internet, what IP should use, and which port should I configure this IP on?

The mgmt net is a net specifically designed for log and control traffic. Historically this was used in more service provider areas so that this extra traffic did not touch the production customer networks. You can still use the reth interfaces for j web and ssh but this will only ever take you to the active routing engine. That us why we use the fxp0 to allow us to connect to both nodes. P

Then how do I  physically connect fxp0 interfaces? For instance, I want to manage each individual node via internet.
Thanks!

The fxp0 interface connects to a specific mgmt network  This network is not normally accessible via the internet.

If you want to manage both from the internet then you will need to connect to the active routing engine, then ssh across to the standby node using the fxp0 address.

The fxp0 interface was not designed for complete external mgmt unless you add routes on your other network devices to send the fxp0 traffic to the mgmt network,.

However, you will only normally ever have to connect to the active node for normal config changes and monitoring.
