Hello Experts,

 

Some of you maybe familiar with GNS3 simulator labs.

 

I have managed to install an Olive image for Juniper routers, however I was wondering if its possible to install an EX4200 image on the router and have it simulate an EX4200?

 

You advice will be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers

 

Carlton

Sadly not bud

The olive images do not have the required layer 2 features here but the base Junos features for routing etc will all still work fine

At the moment there is no fully featured VM version of junos less for Junipers own Junosphere where you can rent some (virtual) devices.  These are similar to Olive but are fully supported from Juniper and are based on SRX architecture so they do the stateful firewalling as well.  However the same limitation on layer 2 switching still applies sadly..  We do expect layer 2 to be added this year though.

Sadly juniper don't provide exact dates for features on the road map so we will just need to wait unfortunately. However you can test the majority of switch features on te SRX series as well juniper have some smaller EX series boxes out there.

Have a look at prices for srx100s and ex2200c. These are small forms factor and will give you the chance to learn the kit.
