Juniper SRX Cluster – Log into secondary node

Sometimes you need to execute commands on the secondary node. To do this you can open a session to the remote node from the primary using the command request routing-engine login node X where X is the node ID to login to. As an example:

root@vsrx> request routing-engine login node 1

root@vsrx:~ # cli

Transferring Files

Files can also be transferred directly node to node. Simply use the remote host nodeX where X is the node ID to copy the file to:

root@vsrx> file copy /var/tmp/myfile node0:/var/tmp/
