Configuring Cluster (HA) Setup

  1. Select Configure>Device Setup> Cluster (HA) Setup.

    The Chassis Cluster Setup Wizard configuration page appears. This wizard guides you through configuring chassis cluster on a two-unit cluster.

    Before you establish a chassis cluster connection between the two units, ensure that you have physical access to both the devices.

    • Your other unit must be on the same hardware and software version as the current unit.
    • Note that both units are erased and rebooted, after which all existing data is irretrievable. You have the option to save a backup copy of your configuration before rebooting.

    Selecting a Node

    The welcome page shows the possible chassis cluster connections that you can configure for your SRX Series device. It shows a graphical representation for SECONDARY UNIT (NODE1) and PRIMARY UNIT (NODE 0).

    If this is the first unit you are setting up, select Yes, this is the first unit to be setup (Node 1).The secondary unit is outlined to indicate the node 1 configuration. You can configure your primary unit (Node 0) later. If you prefer to set a different unit as your secondary, switch to it now and re-enter the Chassis Cluster setup wizard.

    If this is the primary or second unit you are setting up, select No, this is the second unit to be setup (Node 0). This option will enable you to establish a Chassis Cluster configuration with the secondary unit that you already finished setting up.

    Click Next. The Chassis Cluster Setup Wizard page appears.

    Setting Up Secondary Unit (Node 1)

    1. In the Chassis Cluster Setup Wizard page, read the requirements to set up or configure the secondary unit.

    2. Click Next to acknowledge the requirements and proceed.
    3. Enter the secondary unit information such as the password, Node 0 FXP0 IP, and Node 1 FXP0 IP and click Next.

    Conneting Units

    Ensure that both the units are powered on. Ensure that your computer is connected to your secondary unit via the FXP0 port.

    There are two ways you can connect the ports of the two units.

    1. Your secondary unit's Control Port ge-0/0/1 is connected to your primary unit's Control Port ge-0/0/1.

      and/or

      Your secondary unit's Fabric Port ge-0/0/2 is connected to your primary unit's Fabric Port ge-0/0/2.

      In the Chassis Cluster Setup Wizard page, select the type of connection that you have established for both the units.

    2. Click Next.

    Switching Units

    Once the connection is established between the two units, you must shutdown the unit in order to reconfigure it for chassis cluster. You can select to save a backup before shutting down.

    1. Click Next and proceed to shutdown.
    2. The graphical representation of the units show that the primary unit is shutdown.

      Click Shutdown and continue.

    The graphical representation of the units shows that the primary unit is now connected to your computer and the secondary unit is shutdown..

    1. Connect your computer to the primary unit by port 0/0/3.
    2. click Refresh Browser to reconnect to J-Web on the primary unit and re-enter the Chassis Cluster wizard.

  2. Click one:
    • Enable—Enables cluster mode on the node.
      • Enable and Reboot—Enables cluster mode and reboots the node.
      • Enable and No Reboot—Enables cluster mode without rebooting the node.
    • Disable—Disables the cluster mode on the node.
      • Disable and Reboot—Disables cluster mode and reboots the node.
      • Disable and No Reboot—Disables cluster mode without rebooting the node.
    • Reset—Resets your entries to the original value.
  3. Click one:
    • OK—Saves the configuration and returns to the main configuration page.
    • Commit Options>Commit—Commits the configuration and returns to the main configuration page.
