SRX connected to redudant switches



  • I have an 1x SRX 240 which I would like to connect a pair of redundant/meshed Dell distribution switches to. Would the correct way to accomplish this be to create an etherchannel and connect one port from the channel to SW1 and the second port to SW2, or is this scenario even possible?

    [  SRX240  ]
                /         
        [SW1]        [SW2]
            |                |
    {access SW} {access SW}



  • If you would have two Juniper EX switches configured in Virtual Chassis (VC) then this scenario would work perfectly.

    But you have Dell switches… you have to check if they have a feature such as virtual chassis.

    If they act as independent switches, then this design is not supported and you better connect the etherchannel ports to the same switch.

    Ciao!
