Support for Nokia SROS VSR 16 and newer

Here you can ask EVE-NG team to add new images to the list to play in lab.

Do not ask questions like "where I can get image x or Y" in that forum

Support for Nokia SROS VSR 16 and newer

Post by forwardingplane » Thu Aug 08, 2019 6:59 pm

I am seeing the similar behavior to other threads with SROS 16 and 19. Mine will actually boot, depending on the hardware it will even work. Below are my tests, the older hardware is working. If I try to utilize the newer IOM options it never really completes the bootup process and fails to work. i have a working kvm xml file from a Nokia engineer and he says it works under his KVM setup. I would very much like this to work, it's one of the main reasons we bought the Eve licenses and am happy to provide as much resource as I am able to help get this up and running as we have loved using this platform for our SROS 14 work.
Boot messages from the VMs can be found here for the IOM and here for the CPM
My testing and working settings:
---------------
Nokia SROS
----------------
IOM KVM options

Code: Select all

slot=1 chassis=SR-12e card=iom4-e-b mda/1=me2-100gb-qsfp28 mda/2=me2-100gb-qsfp28
CPM KVM options

Code: Select all

slot=A chassis=SR-12e card=cpm5 
On the router itself

Code: Select all

/configure card 1 card-type "iom4-e-b”
/configure card 1 mda 1 mda-type "me2-100gb-qsfp28"
/configure sfm 1 sfm-type m-sfm5-12e
This setup works, assuming the appropriate KVM options

Code: Select all

/configure sfm 1 sfm-type m-sfm5-12 
/configure card 1 card-type "iom3-xp-b”
/configure card 1 mda 1 mda-type "p6-10g-sfp”
On the CPM this is what I see with the modern IOM settings:

Code: Select all

OK, as soon as I posted all of that info I went through the process again and it worked. Here is the working configuration:


Inside Eve-NG I have the following:

CPM Options
KVM:

Code: Select all

slot=A chassis=SR-12e card=cpm5 
4 x CPU
8192MB RAM
Everything else is default except the license file

IOM Options:

Code: Select all

slot=1 chassis=SR-12e card=iom4-e-b mda/1=me2-100gb-qsfp28
4 x CPU
8192MB RAM
Everything else is default

Code: Select all

#--------------------------------------------------
echo "Card Configuration"
#--------------------------------------------------
    card 1
        card-type iom4-e-b
        mda 1
            mda-type me2-100gb-qsfp28
            no shutdown
        exit
        no shutdown                   
    exit
The order of configuration matters (dug, I should have remembered that).

Code: Select all

/configure sfm 1 sfm-type m-sfm5-12e
/configure card 1 card-type "iom4-e-b”
/configure card 1 mda 1 mda-type "me2-100gb-qsfp28"
