    Can you share your Apstra and switch versions, please?

    Missing lo0.2 config suggests that the loopback for the routing-instance configured for your routing zone wasn't created. Not sure why based on this screenshot.

    When you onboarded your virtual switches, did you have to ignore the pristine config validation when installing the agents?

    I have a complete series for building an Apstra lab in eve-ng for 4.0.2 and 4.2.1. You can find both here. The 4.2.1 series has links to Elevate Community threads where you can download the complete companion documentation I used to record the videos.

    Hope this helps!

    Sure!

    This is what I used to record that series. Please note that because I didn't share the deck, I also didn't edit it so it exactly matched what I do in my videos. In fact, this attachment is a scaled down version of a lab guide created by some very talented engineers in APAC a few years back. The deck for the 4.2 series I created myself using this original as a guide for sections/format.

    In short, it's not a 1:1 match, but it should be good enough to help you along.

    Cheers!

    Hi Colin, 

    Man you are awesome. I have already followed  YouTube channel and built Apstra setup by following your videos. Really i have spent lot of time with lab setup with EVE-NG is not so simple but never give up :) .

    I have never did something with pristine configs and am using Apstra 4.2.1. I am attaching multiple snapshot for your analysis. Thanks in advance for your feedback. 

    With Regards.

    Ah, ok. I see the problem, here.

    You are using vQFX. Outright, mac-vrf isn't supported on vQFX (any version), so in video 5 (Provisioning Services) when I'm walking through the creation of a new routing zone (~2:40), I select Symmetric IRB. Symmetric IRB requires mac-vrf.

    Here's the thing... I don't know if recreating the routing zone with asymmetric IRB is going to fix your problem. Apstra 4.2.1 defaults to using mac-vrf during blueprint creation according to the release docs, allowing the admin to opt-in for any existing blueprints. That is to say that whether you configure for symmetric or asymmetric irb in your routing zone may not matter since we're creating a new blueprint. Give it a try, but if that doesn't work, I think you're going to need to use vJunos for your lab and not vQFX.

    Good luck!
