Junos: Adding a new node to Chassis Cluster

Junos: Adding a new node to Chassis Cluster

Today I have been playing with the vSRX range from juniper and I had broken one of the nodes and instead of repairing the VM it was much easier to re-provision the vSRX VM and add it back into the configured cluster

So First of all spin up a new vSRX VM and run the following

# Enter Configuration Mode
# Goto Top of Configuration File
# Delete Entire Configuration
# Add root password on the appliance
set system root-authentication plain-text-password
# Save empty configuration
# Exit to operational mode
# Join node to cluster
set chassis cluster cluster-id <0-255> node <0-1>
# Perform Node Reboot
Request System Reboot


Once the node has rebooted check the cluster status by running the following command

show chassis cluster status
