Hi,

Simple question... Is there a means to run Extreme Fabric Connect in a virtual environment?

Main reason is for me to get better familiar with the command-line and lab a virtual network without having to purchase the hardware?

If so, any instructions on how to install it.

Many thanks

Thanks Andre.

Had heard that some might have been able to get it running on a Linux system?!

Anyone heard of that or know how it might be done.... be useful in the short-term as I really could do with readily getting my hands on it to solidify my memory :)

Cheers.

I'm hopping for years to see something like gns3 running VOSS os - maybe Extreme is going to release something or at least to help the gns3 community to get it done

I'm told that we're waiting on legal's approval to release the virtual image for VOSS and GNS3. There's a private repository on GitHub ready to go when they give us the greenlight. I'll share it here and probably in a new announcement when it hits the streets.
