Any Cisco Layer 2 image work for EVE-NG as a proper switch?

Here you can ask EVE-NG team to add new images to the list to play in lab.

Do not ask questions like "where I can get image x or Y" in that forum

Any Cisco Layer 2 image work for EVE-NG as a proper switch?

Post by ande0255 » Sat Nov 16, 2019 10:21 am

I am wondering if anyone has found a Cisco L2 image that works as a fully functioning switch? I found one IOL image for L2, but it doesn't even support SDM, so it seems very very basic.

Wondering if this can be done at all as switches perform a lot of hardware switching, I see vIOS L2 in the EVE-NG node menu, but Cisco doesn't exactly have that listed in their software downloads.

Any input appreciated!

All virtual switch image from cisco are two ways:
IOL L2/L3 switch
and vIOS L2/L3 from VIRL

Both images are not listed and will not be in the official IOS share place.

I recommend to check this as well video...
