Nx Os Emulator Titanium 5.1(2) Vmware Image.epub



Introduction




Nx Os Emulator Titanium is a software that emulates the NX-OS platform, which is used on Cisco Nexus switches. NX-OS is a network operating system that provides high performance, scalability, resiliency, security, and flexibility for data center networks. NX-OS supports features such as virtual PortChannel (vPC), Fabric Extender (FEX), FabricPath, Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV), etc.


Nx Os Emulator Titanium is useful for network engineers and students who want to learn about NX-OS without having access to physical Nexus switches. It can also be used for network simulation and testing purposes. With Nx Os Emulator Titanium, you can practice NX-OS commands, configure NX-OS features, troubleshoot NX-OS issues, etc.


Nx Os Emulator Titanium is not an official product from Cisco. It is an internal tool that was leaked to the Internet a few years ago. Therefore, it is not supported by Cisco and may have some limitations and bugs. However, it is still a valuable resource for learning and experimenting with NX-OS.


To use Nx Os Emulator Titanium, you need to download and install it on VMware. VMware is a software that allows you to run multiple operating systems on a single computer. You can download VMware Workstation Player for free from here. You also need to download the Nx Os Emulator Titanium 5.1(2) VMware image file from here. The file name is NX-OSv 5.1(2).ova.zip.epub. You need to unzip it and change the extension from .epub to .zip. Then you can extract the .ova file from the .zip file.


To install Nx Os Emulator Titanium on VMware, you need to follow these steps:



Open VMware Workstation Player and click on File -> Open.


To start the Qemu VM for Nx Os Emulator Titanium, you need to right-click on it and select Start. You will see a VNC console window pop up. You can use it to access the Nx Os Emulator Titanium console prompt. You can also use the Telnet or SSH console by right-clicking on the device and selecting Console.


You have successfully connected Nx Os Emulator Titanium to GNS3 using Qemu emulator. Now you can create a network topology with Nx Os Emulator Titanium and other devices in GNS3 and practice network configuration and troubleshooting.


How to Use Nx Os Emulator Titanium for Network Configuration and Troubleshooting




Once you have Nx Os Emulator Titanium running on VMware or GNS3, you can use it for network configuration and troubleshooting purposes. You can access the Nx Os Emulator Titanium console prompt and use NX-OS commands to configure and verify various network features and protocols. You can also use Nx Os Emulator Titanium to simulate different network scenarios and test your network skills.


Here are some examples of how to use Nx Os Emulator Titanium for network configuration and troubleshooting:


How to access Nx Os Emulator Titanium console and check its version and modules




To access the Nx Os Emulator Titanium console, you need to use the VMware or VNC console window, or the Telnet or SSH console from GNS3. You will see a prompt like this:

How to use features such as vPC, FEX, FabricPath, OTV, etc. on Nx Os Emulator Titanium




To use features such as vPC, FEX, FabricPath, OTV, etc. on Nx Os Emulator Titanium, you need to enter the global configuration mode and use various commands. Here are some examples of how to use features on Nx Os Emulator Titanium:



  • To configure a virtual PortChannel (vPC) on Nx Os Emulator Titanium, you need to create a vPC domain and assign a vPC peer link and a vPC peer keepalive link between two Nx Os Emulator Titanium devices. Then you need to create a port channel and assign it as a vPC member port on each device. For example, to configure a vPC between NX-OSv-1 and NX-OSv-2 using Ethernet2/4 as the vPC peer link and Ethernet2/5 as the vPC member port, you can type:




NX-OSv-1(config)# feature vpc NX-OSv-1(config)# vpc domain (#message) Continue writing the article. NX-OSv-1(config)# vpc domain 1 NX-OSv-1(config-vpc-domain)# peer-keepalive destination 192.168.1.2 NX-OSv-1(config-vpc-domain)# interface ethernet 2/4 NX-OSv-1(config-if)# switchport mode trunk NX-OSv-1(config-if)# channel-group 1 mode active NX-OSv-1(config-if)# interface port-channel 1 NX-OSv-1(config-if)# vpc peer-link NX-OSv-1(config-if)# interface ethernet 2/5 NX-OSv-1(config-if)# switchport mode trunk NX-OSv-1(config-if)# channel-group 2 mode active NX-OSv-1(config-if)# interface port-channel 2 NX-OSv-1(config-if)# vpc 2 NX-OSv-2(config)# feature vpc NX-OSv-2(config)# vpc domain 1 NX-OSv-2(config-vpc-domain)# peer-keepalive destination 192.168.1.1 NX-OSv-2(config-vpc-domain)# interface ethernet 2/4 NX-OSv-2(config-if)# switchport mode trunk NX-OSv-2(config-if)# channel-group 1 mode active NX-OSv-2(config-if)# interface port-channel 1 NX-OSv-2(config-if)# vpc peer-link NX-OSv-2(config-if)# interface ethernet 2/5 NX-OSv-2(config-if)# switchport mode trunk NX-OSv-2(config-if)# channel-group 2 mode active NX-OSv-2(config-if)# interface port-channel 2 NX-OSv-2(config-if)# vpc 2



  • To configure a Fabric Extender (FEX) on Nx Os Emulator Titanium, you need to create a FEX and assign a FEX fabric interface on the Nx Os Emulator Titanium device. Then you need to create a FEX host interface and assign it to a FEX number on the FEX device. For example, to configure a FEX with ID 100 and Ethernet 3/1 as the FEX fabric interface on NX-OSv-1, and Ethernet 3/2 as the FEX host interface on FEX100, you can type:




NX-OSv-1(config)# feature fex NX-Osv NX-OSv-1(config)# fex 100 NX-OSv-1(config-fex)# pinning max-links 1 NX-OSv-1(config-fex)# interface ethernet 3/1 NX-OSv-1(config-if)# switchport mode fex-fabric NX-OSv-1(config-if)# fex associate 100 NX-OSv-1(config-if)# channel-group 10 NX-OSv-1(config-if)# no shutdown FEX100(config)# feature fex FEX100(config)# interface ethernet 3/2 FEX100(config-if)# switchport mode access FEX100(config-if)# switchport access vlan 10 FEX100(config-if)# fex associate 100 FEX100(config-if)# no shutdown



  • To configure FabricPath on Nx Os Emulator Titanium, you need to enable the feature and create a FabricPath domain on the Nx Os Emulator Titanium device. Then you need to configure the FabricPath interfaces and VLANs on the device. For example, to configure FabricPath with domain ID 10 and Ethernet 4/1 as the FabricPath interface on NX-OSv-1, and VLAN 10 as the FabricPath VLAN, you can type:




NX-OSv-1(config)# feature-set fabricpath NX-OSv-1(config)# fabricpath domain 10 NX-OSv-1(config-fabricpath-domain)# interface ethernet 4/1 NX-OSv-1(config-if)# switchport mode fabricpath NX-OSv-1(config-if)# no shutdown NX-OSv-1(config-if)# exit NX-OSv-1(config)# vlan 10 NX-OSv-1(config-vlan)# mode fabricpath



  • To configure Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV) on Nx Os Emulator Titanium, you need to enable the feature and create an OTV site and an OTV edge device on the Nx Os Emulator Titanium device. Then you need to configure the OTV join interface, the OTV overlay interface, and the OTV extended VLANs on the device. For example, to configure OTV with site ID 10 and Ethernet 5/1 as the OTV join interface on NX-OSv-1, and Overlay0 as the OTV overlay interface, and VLANs 10 and 20 as the OTV extended VLANs, you can type:




NX-Osv NX-OSv-1(config)# feature otv NX-OSv-1(config)# otv site 10 NX-OSv-1(config-otv-site)# interface ethernet 5/1 NX-OSv-1(config-if)# ip address 10.0.0.1/24 NX-OSv-1(config-if)# otv join-interface NX-OSv-1(config-if)# no shutdown NX-OSv-1(config-if)# exit NX-OSv-1(config)# interface overlay 0 NX-OSv-1(config-if-overlay)# otv control-group 239.0.0.1 NX-OSv-1(config-if-overlay)# otv data-group 232.0.0.0/8 NX-OSv-1(config-if-overlay)# otv extend-vlan 10,20
