    Hi everyone,

     

    I made a very first lab with vSRX which ova was downloaded from https://www.juniper.net/us/en/dm/free-vsrx-trial/

    By using VritualBox and GNS3, when I started vSRX, the GRUB loading was hang forever as below picture.

    I learned from Internet that adjusting memory to at least 6GB and 2 CPUs may help but it's still unsuccessful.

     

    Hope to get your assistance.

     

    Thank you very much

    There are some setup notes and a juniper setup video linked in this earlier discussion.

    You need to change the default import to free BSD and use the virtio interface type.

    Thanks Steve,

     

    After modifying the options, I got another error. It went to Shell> if I chose boot order as below.

    I tried studying its boot process but not very clear. I look forward to getting your ida.

     

    Thank you.

    I'm don't know.  But would try using the alternative network drivers and see if that allows it to complete the boot.
