    • SRX5K-RE-1800X4–from Junos OS Release 12.1X47-D15 and later

    • SRX5K-RE3-128G–from Junos OS Release 19.3R1 and later

Note

You can only configure the following combination of Routing Engine and SCB within a host subsystem:

  • SRX5K-RE-13-20 and SRX5K-SCB

  • SRX5K-RE-1800X4 and SRX5K-SCBE

  • SRX5K-RE-1800X4 and SRX5K-SCB3

  • SRX5K-RE-1800X4 and SRX5K-SCB4

  • SRX5K-RE3-128G and SRX5K-SCB3 or SRX5K-SCB4

The host subsystem has three LEDs that display its status. The host subsystem LEDs are located in the middle of the craft interface.

Switch Control Board SRX5K-SCB Overview

The Switch Control Board (SCB) provides the following functions:

  • Powers on and powers off IOCs and SPCs

  • Controls clocking, system resets, and booting

  • Monitors and controls system functions, including fan speed, board power status, PDM status and control, and the system front panel

  • Provides interconnections to all the IOCs within the chassis through the switch fabrics integrated into the SCB

When the SCB is part of a host subsystem, the Routing Engine installs directly into a slot on the SCB (see Figure 1).

Figure 1: SRX5K-SCB
SRX5K-SCB

The SRX5800 Services Gateway has two SCBs installed and you can install a third SCB for switch fabric redundancy.

Note

The SRX5800 Services Gateway supports a redundant SCB, provided the SCB is a SRX5K-SCBE (SCB2) running Junos OS Release 12.1X47-D15 and later, SRX5K-SCB3 (SCB3) running Junos OS Release 15.1X49-D10 and later, or a SRX5K-SCB4 (SCB4) running Junos OS Release 19.3R1 and later.

The SRX5800 Services Gateway does not support a redundant SCB (third SCB) card if SRX5K-SPC-4-15-320 (SPC2) is installed with SCB1 (SRX5K-SCB). If you have installed a SPC2 on a SRX5800 Services Gateway with a redundant SCB1 card, make sure to remove the redundant SCB1 card.

SCBs install vertically into the front of the chassis. The SCB slots are located at the middle of the card cage and are labeled 0, 1, and 2/6. If any slots are empty, you must install a blank panel.

SCBs installed in slots 0 and 1 provide nonredundant fabric connections. A SCB installed in slot 2/6, in conjunction with SCBs in slots 0 and 1, provides redundant fabrics. If no SCB is installed in slot 2/6, you must install a blank panel in the slot (see Table 1).

Switch Control Board SRX5K-SCB4 Overview

The SRX5K-SCB4 (SCB4) Enhanced Switch Control Board provides improved fabric performance and bandwidth capabilities for high-capacity line cards using the ZF-based switch fabric. The SCB4 is supported on SRX5600, and SRX5800 Services Gateways, but not supported on SRX5400 Services Gateways.

The SCB4 supports the standard and the enhanced midplane.

Some key attributes of the SCB4 are:

  • With the SRX5K-SCB4 Switch Control Board, Increased Fabric Bandwidth mode is the default mode on the SRX5600 and SRX5800 Services Gateways and services gateways will use six active planes without any spare planes.

  • With the Redundant Fabric mode, the SRX5600 and SRX5800 Services Gateways will use four active planes and will have two spare planes.

  • Full performance with fabric redundancy for higher-capacity line cards.

  • Two 10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports (These ports are disabled and reserved for future use).

Increased Fabric Bandwidth mode is the default fabric mode of SCB4. In this mode you must install two SCB4s in SRX5600 and three SCB4s in SRX5800 Services Gateways.

You can change the fabric mode of SCB4 from Increased Fabric Bandwidth mode to Redundant Fabric mode using the CLI. If you change the fabric mode of SCB4 to Redundant Fabric mode you must install two SCB4s in SRX5600 and you can install either two or three SCB4s in SRX5800 Services Gateways.

If you are upgrading from SCB3 (Redundant Fabric mode is the default fabric mode in SCB2 and SCB3) to SCB4 and installing only two SCB4s, you must have Junos OS 19.3R1 or later and change the default fabric mode of SCB4s to Redundant Fabric mode by using the CLI.

Note

To achieve maximum throughput on an SRX5800 Services Gateway, you must install only two SCB4s (configured in redundant fabric mode) in a fully loaded chassis (for example: 3x IOC4 + 7x SPC3 + 2x RE3 + 2x SCB4). If you install three SCB4s into the fully loaded chassis (for example: 3x IOC4 + 7x SPC3 + 2x RE3 + 3x SCB4) the chassis will hit chassis power limit and one of the line cards will go offline due to power shortage.

You can change the fabric mode by following one of these two methods:

  1. Use the CLI command request chassis fabric mode <increased-bandwidth|redundant-fabric>

  2. Save the change in the Configuration file

    set chassis fabric redundancy-mode increased-bandwidth
    set chassis fabric redundancy-mode redundant

The Routing Engine installs directly into a slot on the SCB4, as shown in Figure 8.

Routing Engine SRX5K-RE-13-20 Overview

The Routing Engine is an Intel-based PC platform that runs Junos OS. Software processes that run on the Routing Engine maintain the routing tables, manage the routing protocols used on the device, control the device interfaces, control some chassis components, and provide the interface for system management and user access to the device.

You must install at least one Routing Engine in the services gateway. You can install a second Routing Engine if both Routing Engines are running Junos OS Release 10.0 or later.

A second Routing Engine is required if you are using the dual chassis cluster control link feature available in Junos OS Release 10.0 and later. The second Routing Engine does not perform all the functions of a Routing Engine and does not improve resiliency or redundancy. The second Routing Engine and the Switch Control Board (SCB) in which it is installed do not constitute a host subsystem. The only function of the second Routing Engine is to enable the hardware infrastructure that enables the Chassis Cluster Control 1 port on the Services Processing Card (SPC) used for chassis cluster control links.

If you install only one Routing Engine in the services gateway, you must install it in the slot in the front panel of SCB0. If you install a second Routing Engine to use the dual chassis cluster control link feature, you install it in the slot in the front panel of SCB1 (see Figure 10).

A USB port on the Routing Engine accepts a USB memory card that allows you to load Junos OS.

Figure 10: SRX5K-RE-13-20 Routing Engine
SRX5K-RE-13-20 Routing Engine

Routing Engine SRX5K-RE-13-20 Specifications

The SRX5K-RE-13-20 Routing Engine (Figure 11) is an Intel-based PC platform that runs the Junos operating system (Junos OS). Software processes that run on the Routing Engine maintain the routing tables, manage the routing protocols used on the device, control the device interfaces, control some chassis components, and provide the interface for system management and user access to the device.

Figure 11: Routing Engine
Routing Engine

You must install at least one Routing Engine in the services gateway. You can install a second Routing Engine if both Routing Engines are running Junos OS Release 10.0 or later. A second Routing Engine is required if you are using the dual chassis cluster control link feature available in Junos OS Release 10.0 and later. The second Routing Engine does not perform all the functions of a Routing Engine and does not improve resiliency or redundancy. The second Routing Engine and the Switch Control Board (SCB) in which it is installed do not constitute a host subsystem. The only function of the second Routing Engine is to enable the hardware infrastructure that enables the chassis cluster control 1 port on the Services Processing Card (SPC) used for chassis cluster control links. If you install only one Routing Engine in the services gateway, you must install it in the slot in the front panel of SCB0. If you install a second Routing Engine to use the dual chassis cluster control link feature, you install it in the slot in the front panel of SCB1.

The Routing Engine consists of the following components:

  • CPU—Runs Junos OS to maintain the services gateway's routing tables and routing protocols. It has a Pentium-class processor.

  • DRAM—Provides storage for the routing and forwarding tables and for other Routing Engine processes.

  • USB port—Provides a removable media interface through which you can install Junos OS manually. Junos supports USB version 1.0.

  • Internal flash disk—Provides primary storage for software images, configuration files, and microcode. The disk is a fixed compact flash and is inaccessible from outside the services gateway.

  • Hard disk—Provides secondary storage for log files, memory dumps, and rebooting the system if the internal compact flash disk fails.

  • HDD LED—Indicates disk activity for the hard disk drive.

  • Management ports—Each Routing Engine has one 10/100-Mbps Ethernet port for connecting to a management network, and two asynchronous serial ports—one for connecting to a console and one for connecting to a modem or other auxiliary device. The interface ports are labeled AUX, CONSOLE, and ETHERNET.

  • EEPROM—Stores the serial number of the Routing Engine.

  • Extractor clips—Used for inserting and extracting the Routing Engine.

  • Captive screws—Secures the Routing Engine in place.

The Routing Engine boots from the storage media in this order: the USB device (if present), then the internal flash disk, then the hard disk, then the LAN.

Note

Routing Engine SRX5K-RE-1800X4 Overview

The enhanced Routing Engine is an Intel-based PC platform that runs Junos OS. Software processes that run on the Routing Engine maintain the routing tables, manage the routing protocols used on the device, control the device interfaces, control some chassis components, and provide the interface for system management and user access to the device.The Routing Engine must be installed directly into the SRX5K-SCBE. A USB port on the Routing Engine accepts a USB memory device that allows you to load Junos OS. Figure 13 shows the Routing Engine.

Figure 13: SRX5K-RE-1800X4 Routing Engine
SRX5K-RE-1800X4 Routing Engine

Three ports located on the Routing Engine connect to one or more external devices on which system administrators can issue Junos OS CLI commands to manage the services gateway.

The ports function as follows:

  • AUX–Connects the Routing Engine to a laptop, modem, or other auxiliary device through a serial cable with an RJ-45 connector.

  • CONSOLE–Connects the Routing Engine to a system console through a serial cable with an RJ-45 connector.

  • ETHERNET–Connects the Routing Engine through an Ethernet connection to a management LAN (or any other device that plugs into an Ethernet connection) for out-of-band management. The port uses an autosensing RJ-45 connector to support 10/100/1000 Mbps connections. Two small LEDs on the bottom of the port indicate the connection in use: the LED flashes yellow or green for a 10/100/1000 Mbps connection, and the LED is light green when traffic is passing through the port.

The solid-state drive (SSD) slots located on the Routing Engine provide secondary storage for log files, for generating core files, and for rebooting the system if the CompactFlash card fails. Currently, SRX5K-RE-1800X4 only supports one 128-GB SSD.

SRX5K-RE-1800X4 Routing Engine Boot Sequence

The services gateway is shipped with three copies of the Junos OS preinstalled on the Routing Engine in the following locations:

  • On the CompactFlash card in the Routing Engine

  • On the SSD in the Routing Engine

  • On a USB flash drive that can be inserted into the slot on the Routing Engine faceplate

The Routing Engine boots from the storage media in this order: the USB device (if present), the CompactFlash card, the solid-state drive (SSD), and then the LAN. Normally, the services gateway boots from the copy of the software on the CompactFlash card.

Junos OS Release 19.3R1 and later

Cables and connectors

Slot for Routing Engine

  • AUX–Connects the Routing Engine to a laptop, a modem, or another auxiliary device through a cable with an RJ-45 connector.

  • CONSOLE–Connects the Routing Engine to a system console through a cable with an RJ-45 connector.

  • MGMT–Connects the Routing Engine through an Ethernet connection to a management LAN (or any other device that plugs into an Ethernet connection) for out-of-band management.

Controls

RESET button–Reboots the Routing Engine when pressed.

Supported slots

Front panel slot in an SCB installed in:

  • SRX5400: Bottom slot 0

  • SRX5600: Bottom slots 0 or 1

  • SRX5800: Center slots 0 or 1

Note: The services gateway host subsystem Routing Engine must be installed in the SCB in slot 0. A Routing Engine installed in an SCB in slot 1 only enables dual control links in chassis cluster configurations.

Note: In the SRX5600 or SRX5800 Services Gateways chassis cluster configurations, dual control links functionality is not supported if you mix SRX5K-RE-1800X4 and SRX5K-RE3-128G Routing Engines. To support dual control links you have to install two SRX5K-RE3-128Gs.

SRX5K-RE3-128G Routing Engine Components

Each Routing Engine consists of the following components:

  • CPU—Runs Junos OS to maintain the routing tables and routing protocols.

  • EEPROM—Stores the serial number of the Routing Engine.

  • DRAM—Provides storage for the routing and forwarding tables and for other Routing Engine processes.

  • One 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface between the Routing Engine and Switch Control Board.

  • Extractor clips—Control the locking system that secures the Routing Engine.

  • Interface ports—The AUX, CONSOLE, and MGMT ports provide access to management devices. Each Routing Engine has one 10/100/1000-Mbps Ethernet port for connecting to a management network, and two asynchronous serial ports—one for connecting to a console and one for connecting to a modem or other auxiliary device.

    Note

    The control interface names differ based on the routing engine:

    • For RE2, the control interfaces are displayed as em0 and em1.

    • For RE3, the control interfaces are displayed as ixlv0 and igb0.

    For more information, see show chassis cluster interfaces.

  • Status LEDs—Table 6 describes the functions of the ONLINE, OK/FAIL, MASTER, DISK1, and DISK2 LEDs.

  • ONLINE/OFFLINE button—Takes the Routing Engine online or offline when pressed.

    Note

    The ONLINE/OFFLINE button must be pressed for a minimum of 4 seconds.

  • USB1 and USB2 ports—Provide a removable media interface through which you can install Junos OS manually. Junos OS supports USB versions 3.0, 2.0, and 1.1.

  • RESET button—Reboots the Routing Engine when pressed.

  • SSD1 (primary) and SSD2 (secondary) Solid-state drives (SSD)—Two 200-GB each slim solid-state drives that provide storage for software images, configuration files, microcode, log files, and memory dumps. The Routing Engine reboots from SSD2 when boot from primary SSD1 fails.

  • Captive screws—Secures the Routing Engine.
