Creating a Tenant System (TSYS)

For detailed information about using tenant systems on Juniper Networks security devices, see Logical Systems and Tenant Systems User Guide for Security Device.

Tenant systems for SRX Series Firewalls enable you to partition a single device into secure contexts. Each tenant system has its own discrete administrative domain, interfaces, routing instances, security firewall and other security features.


You must create a TSYS profile on the device before creating a tenant system. To create a TSYS profile on a device from Junos Space Platform, deploy the configuration to create a TSYS profile by using Junos Space Platform features such as device templates or CLI Configlets. To create a TSYS profile by using the Quick Templates feature, see Creating a Quick Template and Deploying a Quick Template.

To create a new tenant system on a physical device:

  1. On the Junos Space Network Management Platform user interface, select Devices > Device Management.

    The Device Management page appears.

  2. Select a device for which you want to create a tenant system and then select Device Operations > Create TSYS from the Actions menu.

    The New Tenant System pop-up window is displayed.

  3. In the TSYS device name field, enter a user-defined name for the new tenant system.
  4. From the TSYS profile drop-down list, choose a tenant system security profile for the new tenant system.

    If you have not created a TSYS profile on the device, the drop-down list will not display any TSYS profiles.

  5. Click Finish to create the new tenant system.
