    VJX Virtual Machines Interface Options

    VMM interfaces for VJX virtual machines are mapped as follows:

    • VMM ‘em0’ = VJX ‘ge-0/0/0’
    • VMM ‘em1’ = VJX ‘ge-0/0/1’
    • VMM ‘em2’ = VJX ‘ge-0/0/2’
    • VMM ‘em15’ = VJX ‘ge-0/0/15’

    The VMM interfaces must always be sequential.

    The following lists the options to consider when defining interfaces in a .vmm file:

    • The em0 / ge-0/0/0 interface is reserved for out-of-band (OOB) management access. You cannot configure an IP address, features, or routing protocols against this interface.
    • Additional interfaces can be configured with VLANs using the Junos OS router configuration file to create more logical interfaces.
    • Interfaces must be listed sequentially, without gaps.
    • Virtual machines must share a common segment (bridge) to communicate with each other.
      interface "<em#>" { bridge “private0"; }; 
      • EXTERNAL indicates a bridge to the management LAN outside the cloud. The EXTERNAL segment is created by the Junosphere environment as the LAN to which both the user (via the Secure Access service) and the management Ethernet port of every virtual machine in the user’s topology can be connected.
    • Only IPv4 addresses are currently supported in the Virtual Machine Manager configuration syntax. Other address families must be configured within the virtual machine.
    • Refer to the Junosphere Release Notes 2.6 for the current number of supported interfaces.
