Hierarchy Level


Define parameters for network management. To manage an SRX Series Services Gateway cluster through a non-fxp0 interface, use this command to define the node as a virtual chassis in NSM. This command establishes a single DMI connection from the primary node to the NSM server. This connection is used to manage both nodes in the cluster. Note that the non-fxp0 interface (regardless of which node it is present on) is always controlled by the primary node in the cluster. The output of a <get-system-information> RPC returns a <chassis-cluster> tag in all SRX Series Firewalls. When NSM receives this tag, it models SRX Series clusters as devices with autonomous control planes.
