Cisco Community Challenge – Sandbox: IOS XE Operating System
Cisco Community Challenge – Sandbox
Are You Familiar with the IOS XE Operating System?
Here at Cisco, we are creating these exciting challenges for the Networking and Developer Community for them to:
Gain insight into the Cisco Community and all the amazing free resources we can share
Sharpen their skills in real-world scenarios using the latest relevant technologies
Motivate them and prepare them for expanded goals, roles and horizons
Know that the Cisco Community is a place to learn, have fun, share, and make connections that will last their entire careers
Build your "Accepted Solutions" badge count by completing the entire challenge!
The Challenge is broken into 3 parts, each more difficult than the last. Each part has 2 tasks for a total of 6 tasks. All tasks will be performed on IOS XE running on the Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V in a free DevNet Always-On sandbox.
Task 1: Change the Banner
Task 2: Create a New Logical Interface
Task 3: Show Status of Logical Interfaces with CLI
Task 4: Enable IOx
FLY (Guest Shell)
Task 5: Enable and Show Status of the Guest Shell
Task 6: Use On-Box Python to change the Description of the Logical/Loopback
(I couldn’t access the GUI via Chrome so I used Firefox instead)
I changed it to ‘Powered by Mountain Dew!!!’ Change it, then take a screenshot and post it.
Task 2: Create a New Logical Interface and in the Description add your Cisco Community username. Take a screenshot and post it.
Task 3: Find the Command Line Interface in the Dashboard and run a command to show ONLY the status of ONLY the Loopback interfaces.
Task 4: Enable IOx. Then, display the status of the IOx service and take a screenshot of the printout. For bonus points, how would you do this without the CLI described in step 3? (HINT: one of the DevNet Learning Labs describes how to do this).
Task 5: Enable the Guest Shell (Not on the GUI CLI) on the IOS XE on CSR Recommended Code Always On sandbox. Verify the status of the Guest Shell and take a screenshot of the printout. It will look something like this:
Task 6: Use On-Box Python (Python interpreter installed inside the Guest Shell) to change the Description of the Logical/Loopback Interface you created in Task 2 to “Python Rules!”. Take a screenshot.

I observed a couple of things about this lab which I think might be improved. 1) After provisioning of the sandbox leaf switches were not reachable. I assumed this is done by purpose for people to play with LAN automation part. If that's correct then...
