EVE-NG community version - IOL L3 switch crashed randomly

Post by certkilo » Fri Feb 14, 2020 3:15 am

Hi,

Testing some IOL L3 switches but randomly few crashed with below errors. It crashed only after it has been powered on for 2-3 days. Not sure if it's the IOS image issue. Do share your thoughts. Thanks.

IOL image: i86bi-linux-l2-adventerprisek9-15.2c.bin
EVE-NG version: 2.0.3-102
ESXi version: 6.7.0 Update 3
ESXi hw:

In my EVE I left just 2 images:
No need more, these 2 are best.

i86bi_LinuxL2-AdvEnterpriseK9-M_152_May_2018.bin
i86bi_LinuxL3-AdvEnterpriseK9-M2_157_3_May_2018.bin

No crash nothing, works like charm.

Thanks. I tried "i86bi_LinuxL2-AdvEnterpriseK9-M_152_May_2018.bin" in my env but encountered below error. I did a search and only can found some workaround on GNS3 not EVE-NG. Did a search of the forum but no luck either. Kindly advise.

You are using very OLD EVE..
in the new versions this problem is solved..
%PLATFORM-2-SIGNATURE_FAILED: Image '/i86bi_LinuxL2-AdvEnterpriseK9-M_152_May_2018.bin

With new EVE you will see VERIFIED :

add new fresh node on topo and test
old node in lab needs to be wiped to force run this IOL properly
