Description#

A lab consists of an SR Linux node connected with Juniper cRPD via a point-to-point ethernet link. Both nodes are also connected with their management interfaces to the clab docker network.

Use cases#

This lab allows users to launch basic interoperability scenarios between Nokia SR Linux and Juniper cRPD network operating systems.

OSPF#

Configuration#

Once the lab is deployed with containerlab, use the following configuration instructions to make interfaces configuration and enable OSPF on both nodes.

Get into SR Linux CLI with docker exec -it clab-srlcrpd01-srl sr_cli and start configuration

# enter candidate datastore
enter candidate

# configure loopback and data interfaces
set / interface ethernet-1/1 admin-state enable
set / interface ethernet-1/1 subinterface 0 admin-state enable
set / interface ethernet-1/1 subinterface 0 ipv4 address 192.168.1.1/24

set / interface lo0 subinterface 0 admin-state enable
set / interface lo0 subinterface 0 ipv4 address 10.10.10.1/32

# configure OSPF
set / network-instance default router-id 10.10.10.1
set / network-instance default interface ethernet-1/1.0
set / network-instance default interface lo0.0
set / network-instance default protocols ospf instance main admin-state enable
set / network-instance default protocols ospf instance main version ospf-v2
set / network-instance default protocols ospf instance main area 0.0.0.0 interface ethernet-1/1.0 interface-type point-to-point
set / network-instance default protocols ospf instance main area 0.0.0.0 interface ethernet-1/1.0

cRPD configuration needs to be done both from the container process, as well as within the CLI.
First attach to the container process bash shell and configure interfaces: docker exec -it clab-srlcrpd01-crpd bash

# configure linux interfaces
ip addr add 192.168.1.2/24 dev eth1
ip addr add 10.10.10.2/32 dev lo
Then launch the CLI and continue configuration docker exec -it clab-srlcrpd01-crpd cli:
# enter configuration mode
configure
set routing-options router-id 10.10.10.2

set protocols ospf area 0.0.0.0 interface eth1 interface-type p2p
set protocols ospf area 0.0.0.0 interface lo.0 interface-type nbma

Verificaton#

After the configuration is done on both nodes, verify the control plane by checking the route tables on both ends and ensuring dataplane was programmed as well by pinging the remote loopback

IS-IS#

Configuration#

Once the lab is deployed with containerlab, use the following configuration instructions to make interfaces configuration and enable IS-IS on both nodes.

Get into SR Linux CLI with docker exec -it clab-srlcrpd01-srl sr_cli and start configuration

  1. Resource requirements are provisional. Consult with the installation guides for additional information. 

  2. The lab has been validated using these versions of the required tools/components. Using versions other than stated might lead to a non-operational setup process.
