Are you looking for a way to learn networking but don’t have access to a rack full of physical switches ?
Well look no further … Dell have released virtualized appliances capable of running the OS10 network operating system. Dell have always believed in Open Networking, and by providing a GNS3 bundle that is freely available for download, this empowers anyone to import OS10 appliances into their GNS3 topologies.
The OS10 appliance can be downloaded from the Dell support site
Solved! Go to Solution.
Here is the link I used to download the OS10 virtualization bundle
I used the 10.5.4.0 version as this was the latest available at the time.
If the vm is under-resourced it can cause problems for the OS10 install. Increasing the CPU resources for the GNS3 VM & aligning the GNS3 VM preferences to make use of the additional CPU and RAM can ensure there is enough resources for the OS10 install to complete successfully.
This is a great way to learn networking, practice for certification exams, build experience with OS10 commands and build your own custom networks.
There can be quite a few steps in building your own network … so please find a short document attached that describes the steps involved in configuring a GNS3 Server VM on vSphere7 with OS 10.5.4
This is a great way to build your own learning network for free … wishing you all the best with these amazing learning blocks … happy building !
The default username and password for OS10 virtual switches is admin / admin
The default username and password for the GNS3 server vm is gns3 / gns3
I'll add the gns3 login details to the guide to make that clearer. I'm glad to hear your are very happy with the bundle, so many thanks for your feedback & best of luck building your own private networks
