Hi everyone,

 

I made a very first lab with vSRX which ova was downloaded from https://www.juniper.net/us/en/dm/free-vsrx-trial/

By using VritualBox and GNS3, when I started vSRX, the GRUB loading was hang forever as below picture.

I learned from Internet that adjusting memory to at least 6GB and 2 CPUs may help but it's still unsuccessful.

 

Hope to get your assistance.

 

Thank you very much

There are some setup notes and a juniper setup video linked in this earlier discussion.

You need to change the default import to free BSD and use the virtio interface type.

Thanks Steve,

 

After modifying the options, I got another error. It went to Shell> if I chose boot order as below.

I tried studying its boot process but not very clear. I look forward to getting your ida.

 

Thank you.

I'm don't know.  But would try using the alternative network drivers and see if that allows it to complete the boot.
