Unable to create regular interface on VSX Virtual System

Hi,

We had our VSX cluster upgraded from R80.20 to R81.10 take 66 last week by a 3rd party support company. After the upgrade, both gateways in the cluster were showing 93% memory utilisation. The chap doing the upgrade said it was because each interface was configured as a virtual switch, and each switch was taking up memory, 13 in total. He also said it is worth deleting the virtual switch and adding a regular interface on the VS.

So, the virtual switch was removed from the VS, then the virtual switch was deleted and polices installed. Then on the correct VS, we added a regular interface on the correct bond and vlan..... and nothing worked.

The interface on the VS shows the 192.168.196.x address instead of the VIP. 

There are 3 VS, we tried exactly the same on another VS and it worked immediately.

Now, the VS we are having issues with is showing a warning in smart console, but doesn't show anything when we open Device & License Information. We think the issue with the interfaces is related to the warning on the VS

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Hi, sorry for the delay in responding. We ending up raising a TAC case and even the engineer said it was an interesting case.

However, long story short, the VS showing as a warning with no visible issues, resolved itself when I accidently rebooted the management server.

As far as the interface IP address not bonding to the regular interface. The problem identified itself when a virtual switch is removed and a regular interface is added against the VS. We were able to resolve this problem by simply restarting the VS after adding the regular interface. fw vsx restart_vs [id]

When you say nothing worked, what was the precise behavior and errors shown?
Do you have the latest JHF installed?
