[SRX] How do I verify chassis cluster nodes are configured and up on SRX?



Article ID: KB15439 KB Last Updated: 25 Jun 2020Version: 5.0

How do I verify chassis cluster nodes are configured and up on SRX?


Verify Chassis Cluster (JSRP)


step1  Run the following command on either node to verify that the Chassis Cluster is enabled:
show chassis cluster status
What output do you see?
  • Chassis cluster is not enabled - Consult KB15650
  • Cluster and Redundancy Group information - Continue with Step 2.

step2  Do you see node0 and node1 listed under Redundancy Group 0?
  • Yes - Continue with Step 3.
  • No - Go to Step 5.

step3  For each Redundancy Group, what is the Status?

step4  What is the priority of each node?

  • 0 - Consult KB16869.
  • 255 - Consult KB16870.
  • 1 - 254 - If both nodes have a priority other than 0 or 255, i.e. if the priority listed for each node is the priority specified in the configuration, then the cluster status is in a healthy state.  We recommend testing the failover condition.  Refer to the Understanding Failover section of Technical Documentation.

step5  Are both devices the same Hardware, AND are both devices running the same JUNOS Software Release?

step6  Is the 'Cluster ID' the same on each device?  To check, run the following command on each node:
show chassis cluster status
  • Yes - Continue with Step 7.
  • No - The Cluster IDs must be the same. - Consult KB15650

step7    If you need additional assistance, collect the following:
show chassis cluster status
show chassis cluster statistics
show chassis cluster information
show log jsrpd
show log messages
show log chassisd
request support information
and  Contact Support to open a case.
