Nexus 9k doesn't start - ovs problem ?

Before posting something, READ the changelog, WATCH the videos, howto and provide following:
Your install is: Bare metal, ESXi, what CPU model, RAM, HD, what EVE version you have, output of the uname -a and any other info that might help us faster.

Nexus 9k doesn't start - ovs problem ?

Post by ecardona » Thu Mar 26, 2020 2:01 pm

Hi,

We are trying to run a Nexus 9k, but we can't. We tried a couple of images to check if the image was the problem, but no luck. The images that we tested are:

nxosv9k-7.0.3.I7.1
nxosv9k-7.0.3.I7.2
nxosv9k-7.0.3.I7.4
nxosv9k-9.2.4

I issued a tail -f /var/log/syslog when I tried to start the device and this is the error:

Mar 26 15:54:24 nap-eve-ng ovs-vsctl: ovs|00001|vsctl|INFO|Called as ovs-vsctl del-port vunl0_2_0

We also tried this in VMware and Xen as a host for the ova image,

Any help will be great !

Thank you in advance !

all newest images running on eve like charm

nxosv9k-9.3.3
nxosv9k-7.0.3.I7.7
nxosv9k-7.0.3.I7.8

no issues at all just follow how to prepare image sir

and I hope you do not run it on AMD CPU...
AMD has issues always with nested virtualization

Thank you Uldis !

I moved to a server with Intel and installed the EVE-NG over XEN Server,

Now when I tried to start the Nexus 9k, the EVE-NG reboots unexpectly,

Now is a new problem, at least is a new one,

Thanks
