Summary:

This article provides information about the minimum requirements for running NSRP on Juniper firewalls. 

 

Symptoms:

 

Solution:

Minimum requirements

Step 1.  Software

Both firewalls must run the identical ScreenOS version. When running an engineering patch version of ScreenOS, both firewalls must run the identical patch version:

Platform Active/Passive Active/Active
ISG Series 5.0.0 or above 5.0.0 or above
NS5000 Series 5.0.0 or above 5.0.0 or above
SSG550M 5.1.0 or above 5.1.0 or above
SSG520M 5.1.0 or above 6.0.0 or above
SSG300 Series 5.4.0 or above 5.4.0 or above
SSG 140 5.4.0 or above 6.0.0 or above
SSG5 & SSG20 5.4.0 or above* 6.0.0 or above*

* extended license required

Step 2.  License Keys

Both firewalls must have identical features and license keys that are enabled or installed.

Step 3.  Hardware

Both firewalls must have identical hardware. The line modules must have the same number of ports. For information about certain exceptions, refer to KB13851 - What are the hardware requirements for NSRP cluster in ScreenOS?

Step 4.  HA Port and Cable

Each firewall must have at least one port that is dedicated to the HA zone, which will carry the NSRP control traffic between the firewalls. The HA cable between the firewalls can be connected directly or via a layer 2 switch with both the ports in the same VLAN.

In Active/Active mode, if data-path forwarding is required, each firewall must have an additional port that is dedicated to the HA zone, which will carry the data traffic between the two firewalls.
