Example: Configuring Chassis Cluster Control Ports

This example shows how to configure chassis cluster control ports on SRX5600 and SRX5800 devices. You need to configure the control ports that you will use on each device to set up the control link.

Requirements

Before you begin:

Overview

By default, all control ports on SRX5600 and SRX5800 devices are disabled. After connecting the control ports, configuring the control ports, and establishing the chassis cluster, the control link is set up.

This example configures control ports with the following FPCs and ports as the control link:

  • FPC 4, port 0
  • FPC 10, port 0

Configuration

CLI Quick Configuration

To quickly configure control ports for use as the control link for the chassis cluster, copy the following commands and paste them into the CLI:

{primary:node0}[edit]set chassis cluster control-ports fpc 4 port 0set chassis cluster control-ports fpc 10 port 0

Step-by-Step Procedure

To configure control ports for use as the control link for the chassis cluster:

  1. Specify the control ports.
    {primary:node0}[edit]user@host# set chassis cluster control-ports fpc 4 port 0{primary:node0}[edit]user@host# set chassis cluster control-ports fpc 10 port 0

Results

From configuration mode, confirm your configuration by entering the show chassis cluster command. If the output does not display the intended configuration, repeat the configuration instructions in this example to correct it.

For brevity, this show command output includes only the configuration that is relevant to this example. Any other configuration on the system has been replaced with ellipses (...).

{primary:node0}[edit]user@host# show chassis cluster...
control-ports {fpc 4 port 0;fpc 10 port 0;}...

If you are done configuring the device, enter commit from configuration mode.

Verification

Verifying the Chassis Cluster Status

Purpose

Verify the chassis cluster status.

Action

From operational mode, enter the show chassis cluster status command.

{primary:node0}
user@host> show chassis cluster status
Cluster ID: 1
Node                       Priority     Status    Preempt  Manual failover

Redundancy group: 0 , Failover count: 1
    node0                   100         primary   no       no
    node1                   1           secondary no       no

Redundancy group: 1 , Failover count: 1
    node0                   0           primary   no       no
    node1                   0           secondary no       no

Meaning

Use the show chassis cluster status command to confirm that the devices in the chassis cluster are communicating with each other. The chassis cluster is functioning properly, as one device is the primary node and the other is the secondary node.
