About Populating vGW Series Records to SRX Series Zone Address Books

vGW Series to SRX Series zones synchronization feature allows VM records to be populated in the SRX Series address book for the zone that the VM belongs to. This allows the VM-to-zone mapping validation to occur within the context of the SRX Series device management.

When a VM record is added to an SRX Series device’s zone address book, it is created with the name of the VM as defined in vCenter. A string is prepended to the name of the VM in its address book entry to indicate that it is an auto-generated VM record. By default, the string “VM-“ is used, but you can change the name in the synchronization dialog box. If you change this string, vGW will attempt to update all of your existing entries to use the new string. Your existing entries are not lost or removed.
