IOL images on a NFS share

Post by gio » Wed Nov 25, 2020 5:20 pm

Hi all,

it's my first post here and I'm trying to get acquainted with EVE-NG therefore please accept my apologies if I ask something obvious.

I can draw the topology with routers and I can start with the web GUI saying routers were startedy don't become blu and they stay black/dark gray.
We use a central repository for images (images are used for other reasons) and that's why I decided to mount the directory.

We mounted the IOL images in /opt/unetlab/addons/iol/bin via NFS4 share (RO).

192.168.65.253:/brunas/ISO_images/Cisco_Images_for_GNS3-VIRL_IOU_IOS/IOU/bin on /opt/unetlab/addons/iol/bin type nfs4 (rw,relatime,vers=4.0,rsize=1048576,wsize=1048576,namlen=255,hard,proto=tcp,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sys,clientaddr=192.168.64.171,local_lock=none,addr=192.168.65.253)

The mount is reported RW but I cannot do touch test.txt, it reports "read-only filesystem" and for the moment is intended.

Is this config supported?

TIA,

gio

Hi Uldis,

sorry for the misleading path name, IOL images are under "ISO" path but they are normal IOL images with correctly generated license file.
The fact that I don't have any problem with IOL images is that I can ssh into eve-ng and as root run a single IOL instance of an image, eventualy I get the Router> prompt.
I did the same within the WebGUI, the Web GUI reported "Router X started successfully" but the icon didn't turn blue.

I looked into all the log files to see what could have been the problem but I didn't spot any significant message.
After re-thinking of the installation process other questions came into my mind and I raised the following thread

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=17711

I'm sorry for creating multiple questions I think is better not to have two concurrent discussions that may converge.
Many mnay thanks for your propmt reply, I will continue on the other side.
