vQFX test lab on KVM

‎01-10-2017 03:18 PM

Hi all,

 

I have been doing some studying for Juniper exams and decided to check out the vQFX vm . I have set it up on KVM, as opposed to virtuabox. I understand it is not a supported configuration but for the last week it has been helpful for labbing up exercises. I have written a post here vQFX10k on KVM if anyone has some spare KVM cpu cycles and memory and wants to give it a bash.

Is there a trick to downloading these ? We have a company account, have QFX in the prod environment, and are a fortune 25 company, and my account won't even let me d/l the eval for a simulation test case. 

 

I'm going to have to use CSR1000v's for this, and tell my managers for whatever reason, Juniper won't let me d/l them.

 

in some of our sites, we have cisco 1k's so I guess maybe there is a reason we don't use Juniper there.

 

And... I'm constantly getting these:

 

This page isn’t working

iam-sso.juniper.net is currently unable to handle this request.

HTTP ERROR 503
 
Are they having issues ?

Try incognito, that usually does the trick for me. Smiley Happy
