[Req] How-To Add - vExtremeOS ?

Here you can ask EVE-NG team to add new images to the list to play in lab.

Do not ask questions like "where I can get image x or Y" in that forum

[Req] How-To Add - vExtremeOS ?

Post by petrovg » Mon Nov 20, 2017 3:16 pm

Hi,

I am facing some issues running ExtremeOS in EVE and I am wondering what is the correct procedure to add the image.
In supported images we have ExtremeOS 21.1.14 but the 'howto-s' page does not show an example so I thought it is easy....

In
https://github.com/extremenetworks/Virtual_EXOS

we have
- EXOS ISO Files
- .xos Files
- .qcow2 files for GNS3

I've tried using the files for GNS3 and I am placing them under /opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/extremexos-X
for example:
root@eve-ng:/opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/extremexos-16.1.1.4# pwd
/opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/extremexos-16.1.1.4
root@eve-ng:/opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/extremexos-16.1.1.4# ls
hda.qcow2

Do I need to do any conversion of the file or use .xos/.iso instead?
I am fixing the permissions with /opt/unetlab/wrappers/unl_wrapper -a fixpermissions
after the file is placed in the correct directory with the hda filename.

Thanks in advance!
pg.

Does the image boot? I believe you can only connect to it with VNC.

At first it shows as it is starting and I get a log that the node is started (in Notifications) but few seconds later the node is back greyed out.

I remember last week when I tried it the node was starting but opening a console was just blank - nothing was happening.

So I assume I am doing something wrong. Could anyone give it a try, please:
