reth-count (Chassis Cluster)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the number of redundant Ethernet (reth) interfaces allowed in the chassis cluster. You need to specify the total number of interfaces in the chassis cluster before redundant Ethernet interfaces are created. For example, the set chassis cluster reth-count 2 allow you to create two reth interfaces (example: reth0 and reth1)

Note that the number of reth interfaces configured determines the number of redundancy groups that can be configured and each SRX Series Firewall has a maximum number of reths that it can support.
