I have an issue that I hope you can help me with.
The vqfx-pfe software will not start, RE part works perfect.
The only thing that happen is following
@vqfx-10000:~/vqfx10k-vagrant/full-2qfx$ virsh console pfe-hostname
Connected to domain pfe-hostname
Escape character is ^]
Booting `Juniper Linux'
Loading Linux ...
The setup as following:
ESXI/ Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS/
Any ideas why is not working?
What is the CPU and memory resources added to the VM? How many wan interfaces are added to the pfe?
Thanks for the quick response.
I'm using junipers standars setup for the moment (full-1qfx or full-2qfx)

it could be that the console data is not getting directed to screen.
when you see the grub menu, press e for “edit” and insert into before or after Root=Label, console=ttyS0 to continue.
if it is not completing, you should now be able to see where it is hanging.
if it says something about insufficient space, check amount of ram allocated, you want 2048mb
I will try.
VM has 16G memory so it should be enought.
I have tried to add console=ttyS0 and after that do ctrl-x to boot the image.
Unfortunately no more debugs occur.
i still think it could be console related as you should be getting some ouput.
however, you do not need access via console. the pfe should connect automatic to the RE via the 169.254.0 network on internal bridge, have you tried connnectivity there?
more detailed ino on that here: https://github.com/Juniper/vqfx10k-vagrant/wiki/Troubleshooting-Guide
Is work now.
The pfe image did start, it was only a display issue as you said.
The other thing was the bridge between re and pfe.
Thanks for the supoort
