Access to qcow2 images is restricted to registered customers only. Please contact our sales representative if you are interested in a trial of IP Fabric.
Deployment And Configuration Of The VM
Please bear in mind that IP Fabric uses CLI access (SSH or telnet) to connect to the network devices for data collection. It's important to place a VM into the proper network segment to prevent high ACL or firewall configuration overhead.
virt-install --name=IP_Fabric --disk path=<path to the first, larger disk with OS>.qcow2 --disk path=<path to the second disk for data>.qcow2 --graphics spice --vcpu=4 --ram=16384 --network bridge=virbr0 --import
This command will deploy a new virtual machine with IP_Fabric name, two qcow2 disks, 4 CPU cores, 16GB of RAM and will connect VM to the internet through virtbr0 interface (if your machine has a different bridge interface name or you want to connect it straight through the device network card to the internet you need to change --network parameter)
This command can be altered as needed. For example, you can alter hardware resources according to the network environment size (check requirements).
