    Video: 1. Introduction - Apstra 4.2.1 in eve-ng

    Video hashtag: #4.2.1_eve_video-1

    It's finally time! Over 18 months after my first Apstra series, it's time for an update! New (as of this moment unreleased) version. New workflows. New virtual switching platforms. Lab guides you can actually download. Same great Intent-Based Networking taste with zero calories!

    This is the first in what I've estimated to be an 11-part series taking you through a step-by-step build of a multi-fabric Apstra 4.2.1 lab in eve-ng. It's more comprehensive then the last series, and did I mention you'll be able to directly download the documentation I created to put this together?

    Here are the videos I'm planning:
    1. Introduction (that this one!)
    2. Prepping Your Lab
    3. Day-0 Virtual Device Profiles and Agents
    4. Day-0 Building the Fabric
    5. Day-1 Provisioning Services
    6. Day-1 Deploying Testing Hosts
    7. Day-1 Over-The-Top Data Center Interconnect (OTT-DCI)
    8. Day-1 DCI Addendum - Direct Peering
    9. Day-1 Core/WAN Connectivity
    10. Day-1 Internet Connectivity
    11. Day-2 Ops Scenarios

    I'm going to be grinding these out, so stay tuned for more!

    Is your lab using vJunos? I ask because I see the apply is choking on the configuration of symmetrical routing for L3 IRBs. You can try modifying your routing zones for asymmetric IRB. If you're using anything other than the virtual switches on the version I'm using in my lab, this could be a compatibility issue with that feature.
