No there is nothing as advance as packet tracer in the extreme world. But you will find that this link will be your best friend when looking for commands etc.

Thanks! I've been enjoying my time with Extreme so far! We have three Extreme switches in our production network right now :)

Dean,

If you use GNS3 with virutal-exos it can work as easy as packet tracer.  I have been meaning to write a guide on this.  I will see if i can come up with one.  But https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/ is a great place to start.

I just uploaded a GNS3 template and qcow2 files for EXOS-VM to our GitHub repository:  https://github.com/extremenetworks/Virtual_EXOS
Hopefully this will make it a little easier to use.

Welcome to the Hub Community Dean.  Another resource that we just launched will help you get started is our Unified Search page (see "Search Extreme" box at top of the page").  

As Stephen suggested, there's a fair amount out there on how to set up Virtual EXOS on the Extreme GitHub site: http://extremenetworks.com/search/#q=virtual%20exos&t=All&sort=relevancy.

Unified Search let's you query not only GTAC Knowledge (as Payton points out), but also the Hub Community, Product Documentation, GitHub, etc.
