extreme VOSS image creation request

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've got the Extreme VOSS 8.4 now running in EVE.

I followed the same steps as for Extreme EXOS:
Step 1. Download one of provided Extreme VSP KVM (qcow2) images:


Step 2. Login as root in the EVE CLI using SSH protocol. Create the folder for exos image, use the proper version number:

mkdir /opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/extremevsp-

Step 3. Upload the downloaded image to the EVE newly created directory (path /opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/extremevsp- using for example FileZilla or WinSCP:

Step 4. Go to the newly created exos image folder and rename original file name to hda.qcow2.

cd /opt/unetlab/adons/qemu/extremevsp-
mvVOSSGNS3. hda.qcow2

Step 5. Clean and fix permissions:

/opt/unetlab/wrappers/unl_wrapper -a fixpermissions
To get it into the node list, I copied the template of ExtremeXOS (extremexos.yml) and renamed it to extremevsp.yml (I've got an AMD system)
type: qemu
description: ExtremeVSP
name: ExtremeVSP
cpulimit: 1
icon: Switch L3.png
cpu: 1
ram: 2048
ethernet: 3
console: telnet
qemu_arch: x86_64
qemu_options: -machine type=pc-1.0,accel=kvm -cpu Nehalem -nographic -rtc base=utc
I already created a two node lab with SPB and vIST between the 2.
