Aruba VGW - Can run on EVE Pro?

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

I am pretty sure that YES.
Lot of devices has 2 HDD, and it work.
Very similar How to is for Cyberoam FW.
All you need is to create new template for it.

How to create template is given in the EVE pro cookbook, chapter: 18.3

similar image from 2 vmdk: ... -firewall/

hdd format can vary, hda, virtio, sata
most universal from vmdk is hda.cqow2 and hdb.qcow2

Aruba Virtual Gateway (VGW) is a software-based solution designed to provide secure connectivity for remote and branch offices. EVE-NG (Emulated Virtual Environment) is a network emulation platform used for testing and learning purposes.

Whether Aruba VGW can run on EVE Pro depends on various factors:

Supported Platforms: Check if Aruba VGW supports virtualization platforms like VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM, as these are the typical platforms supported by EVE-NG.

Hardware and Resource Requirements: EVE-NG requires adequate hardware resources (CPU, RAM, disk space) to run virtual machines effectively. Aruba VGW might have its own resource requirements that need to be met.

Virtualization Support: EVE-NG uses virtualization technologies to emulate networking devices. Ensure that the virtualization technology used by EVE-NG is compatible with what Aruba VGW requires.

Licensing and Usage: Consider the licensing terms and conditions for both Aruba VGW and EVE-NG. Some software might have restrictions on running in virtualized environments or specific use cases.

Official Documentation: Check the official documentation for both Aruba VGW and EVE-NG for any information about compatibility, installation guides, or best practices.

Online Community: If you're unsure, consider checking online forums, communities, or discussion boards where users might have shared their experiences with running Aruba VGW on EVE-NG.

Remember that software compatibility and system requirements can change over time, so it's a good idea to check the most recent sources for accurate information. If Aruba VGW does not explicitly mention EVE-NG compatibility or if you encounter challenges during installation, you might consider reaching out to Aruba's support or community resources for guidance.

Always ensure that you have the necessary licenses and permissions to run any software in your testing environment.
