Backup Device for the SRX 210 Services Gateway

Note: This feature is currently not supported in this release of the SRX 210 services gateway.

You can specify a backup device to take over when the routing protocol process of the SRX 210 services gateway is not running:

  • When the services gateway is starting.
  • When its routing protocol process has failed. Packets arriving at a services gateway in this situation are routed to the backup device. When the routing protocol process starts up again, the address of the backup device is removed from the routing and forwarding tables of the services gateway.

Note: The backup device must be located on the same subnet as the primary device.

To configure a backup device, you must use the CLI or J-Web configuration editor. You cannot configure a backup device with J-Web Quick Configuration.
