Video: 6. Deploying Testing Hosts - Apstra 4.2.1 in eve-ng
Video hashtag: #4.2.1_eve_video-6
In this video, we'll build out our lab bridge nodes and testing hosts. If you've been passing on downloading the lab guides from the Elevate Community link above, this is the video where I strongly suggest you start. It's that, or trying to keep up while I type (and mis-type/delete/retype) configuration into 5x different vSRX nodes.
As mentioned in video 2, I HATE configuring LACP in Linux. To spare myself the pain and torment of bonded interfaces, I use vSRX nodes running a packet-mode for ESI-LAG/LACP connectivity between the fabric border leafs and the uMate hosts I'm using for testing. This video will take you through the complete configuration of these vSRX bridge nodes, as well as the straightforward testing host configurations.
At the end of the video, we'll confirm reachability, but not before I trip over my own feet and have to troubleshoot a connectivity problem.
If you are comfortable building your own testing hosts, you can probably skip this video since there's no fabric/Apstra configuration elements.
Thank you for watching!
Thanks for sharing Colin!
