Hey guys,

With combination of posts above and the GNS3 thread I was able to get 15.0R5 booted without crashing

I used VirtIO network adapters and these advanced settings in GNS3:
-nographic -smp 2 -enable-kvm -smbios type=1

However, I'm going to do initial staging now (setting up xcm/mda etc) and try some connectivity, will report back on the performance ;)

I figured out why I had no service connectivity between SROS 14 and 15.
They actually used the same mac-address on both chassis for that IES..
When I manually configured the mac-addresses, it worked as expected..
Need to see if I can find a way to set base-mac per system...

OK; SMBIOS setting for base MAC, add this in the GNS3 advanced options:

Code: Select all

 system-base-mac=<mac-address>
This is a string field in SMBIOS, so as far as I can tell, its not possible to do automatic incrementation based on the system number.
Ideally, it would look like this:

system-base-mac=hh:hh:hh:h<sysnum>:hh:hh where sysnum is the number of devices of that type dropped on the GNS3 project board.

This relates directly to the configuration \bof system-base-mac, so it can also be manually configured in BOF for each VM after first boot, but this requires reboot.


Credit to http://www.eve-ng.net/documentation/how ... -nokia-vsr for details on how to configure various SMBIOS options, like chassis, iom/imm, mda etc.

Also, here is a very good updated document for SROS vSIM:

I am having more luck with 15.0.R3 now, on Eve-NG .... It will boot VSR-I or vSIM, but, I cannot do 'show card' or 'show mda'.
When i try 'enable-admin' it says the admin password is not configured, and it won't let me enable-admin.
Where do I set that password?????

You do have license?

I had similar issues with VSR-I since my license only covers vSIM.
Never tried Eve-NG, but for me, it works very well now in GNS3 :)

No i dont have a license. Is that needed for Version 15 then?

I get same results in gns3. It boots, i can login with admin admin but almost no commands available and it wont let me enable-admin because enable password is not set....

Yes, the only unlicensed SROS you can do something useful with is SROS 13.
