Interfaces and Chassis
TAP mode support (vSRX 3.0)—Starting in Junos OS Release 20.2R1, vSRX 3.0 supports TAP mode for security flow sessions to generate security log information and to display the information on threats detected, application usage, and user details according to the incoming traffic.
Use the set security forwarding-options mode tap interface <interface-name> command to configure TAP mode on an interface. For inspecting IP-IP and GRE inner tunnel traffic use the set security forwarding-options mode tap inspect-pass-through-tunnel ipip and set security forwarding-options mode tap inspect-pass-through-tunnel gre commands, respectively.
To disable this TAP mode, delete the TAP mode for the related interface and the related zone and policy configuration of that interface.
Management and Automation
VMware Tools support for VMware Hypervisors (vSRX 3.0)—Starting in Junos OS Release 20.2R1, vSRX 3.0 on VMware Hypervisors supports Open VM Tools version 10.3.0 for autoconfiguration. The Open VM Tools are initialized when the guest operating system starts. The service passes information between the host and guest operating systems for better management and operation.
