Dell FTOSv (OS10) / ftosv#
Dell FTOSv (OS10) virtualized router/switch is identified with
vr-ftosv kind in the topology file. It is built using vrnetlab project and essentially is a Qemu VM packaged in a docker container format.
vr-ftosv nodes launched with containerlab comes up pre-provisioned with SSH and SNMP services enabled.
Managing vr-ftosv nodes#
Containers with FTOS10v inside will take ~2-4min to fully boot.
You can monitor the progress with
docker logs -f <container-name>.
Dell FTOS10v node launched with containerlab can be managed via the following interfaces:
to connect to a
bash shell of a running vr-ftosv container:
docker exec -it <container-name/id> bash
to connect to the Dell FTOSv CLI
Default user credentials:
vr-ftosv container can have different number of available interfaces which depends on platform used under FTOS10 virtualization .qcow2 disk and container image built using vrnetlab project. Interfaces uses the following mapping rules (in topology file):
eth0- management interface connected to the containerlab management network
eth1- first data interface, mapped to first data port of FTOS10v line card
eth2+- second and subsequent data interface
When containerlab launches vr-ftosv node, it will assign IPv4/6 address to the
eth0 interface. These addresses can be used to reach management plane of the router.
eth1+ needs to be configured with IP addressing manually using CLI/management protocols.
Features and options#
vr-ftosv nodes come up with a basic configuration where only
admin user and management interfaces such as SSH provisioned.
