Only Primary SRX Cluster Member Got IDP Signature Update from NSM with Virtual Chassis

1. Situation:

In my environment, there are a couple of SRX Clusters managed by NSM. NSM downloads IDP signature updates from Internet then push those updates to each SRX clusters. Most of SRX cluster members will get IDP signature updates except one pair managed by NSM through Virtual Chassis.

2. Symptoms:

For this pair SRX cluster which is managed by NSM through Virtual Chassis, always only primary cluster member get the signature update, not the secondary one. Even after failover, the secondary becomes primary, the NSM will think this pair SRX cluster has been updated to latest signature database then stop to push.

3. Solutions:


Juniper has a KB to manually sync the database between two cluster members. As long as you have one member got the signature database, the second one can be manually copied in and install it.


Step 1: Copy the signature from Primary folder to Secondary
