vQFX images built with hellt/vrnetlab have experimental support for vQFX version v18 and newer.
Managing vr-vqfx nodes#
Containers with vQFX inside will take ~7min to fully boot.
You can monitor the progress with
docker logs -f <container-name>.
Juniper vQFX node launched with containerlab can be managed via the following interfaces:
to connect to a
bash shell of a running vr-vqfx container:
docker exec -it <container-name/id> bash
to connect to the vQFX CLI (password
Default user credentials:
eth0- management interface connected to the containerlab management network
eth1- first data interface, mapped to first data port of vQFX line card
eth2+- second and subsequent data interface
When containerlab launches vr-vqfx 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-vqfx nodes come up with a basic configuration where only the control plane and line cards are provisioned, as well as the
admin user with the provided password.
