Re: building my olive

Are you receiving any sort of error, nothing happens, etc?

 

The link to the source YouTube video might be useful so that people can take a look and see what might be missing from the video, etc.

Re: building my olive

I haven't done an Olive setup in some time but you used to need a FreeBSD prior to version 8 in order to get things running and then a Junos upgrade takes the OS to a newer FreeBSD revision.

 

You may want to take a look at this link which is consistent with what I remember about setting up an Olive under VMware.

Re: building my olive

Sorry to have to add this.  I believe using an Olive is against the license agreement for Junos.  Google will return plenty of sites out there which offer assistance on this, but they usually stress that this is not supported by Juniper and is against the license etc....so please be careful what you put on an official Juniper site.

 

That said.  Good luck and hope you do well in your studies.

Re: building my olive

Thanks Martin for your input,

 

I have seen many times that Juniper doesn't support the Olive installs but never anything against using the JunOS as an Olive to practice towards a certificate.

 

Anyone from Juniper support please let us know.
