i have been attempting a number of different ways to implement the 16.1.2 vm in both gns3 and virl...
i have the most success at the command line with qemu
here is the procedure whereby i can get it to boot in a window at the cmd line:
make an image container
sudo qemu-img create -f qcow2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/exos_cmd.img 3G
add x86 config commands
sudo qemu-system-x86_64 -m 1024 -hda /var/lib/libvirt/images/exos_cmd.img -cdrom /home/ccie/images/ios/exospc-18.104.22.168.iso -boot d
and this final command will get me to a login:
sudo qemu-system-x86_64 -hda exos.img -cpu core2duo
i have been attempting a combination of virsh and virt-manager with little success... seems the hang up is with -cpu core2duo support in virt-manager. see my xml below:
it seems i cannot pass the cpu command core2duo as an argument during runtime in virsh, nor in virt manager... in fact virt-manager errors out when i try to select core2duo complaining it is incompatible with host cpu (dual intel xeons, btw)
i understand that there are methods to pass cmd line args from qemu into virsh, although i have not had success with that yet...
if there is anyone who might have an idea how to proceed i'd appreciate it.. also anyone with any luck using UNL or VIRL..
i have vmware 12 ws pro that i will attempt making exos vm in, however i'd prefer to use kvm...
