Virtual VOSS and working dataplane

New Contributor II

Hi All,

I guess this is a question for peolple working at Extreme;  are there any plans to implement working dataplane on Virtual VOSS in future releases?

what is the use case you are looking for?


Hi Rodger,

Thanks for the reply; mainly to create virtual labs, which are easer to manage and setup than using physical equipment and enable me to create more complicated networks. I was playing a lot with Virtual EXOS in GNS3 and I'd like to use Virtual VOSS to learn the inner workings of SPB (especially that there are no other vendors that I know of who make SPB appliances available), but its quite, let's say, "unsatisfying" when you can't see the results of your setup and test communication paths; from what I've tested, the only thing that enables me to verify communication between switches is ping, which works only between directly connected bridges; pings are not forwarded futher.

Futhermore, we have multiple technicians who are working/learning Fabric and it would be great if they would be able to create their own labs on their computers.

Have a great day,
Patryk Piros
