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.

 

WALK (GUI)

  • Task 1: Change the Banner
  • Task 2: Create a New Logical Interface

 

RUN (CLI)

  • 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

 

Environment / Router / OS

No VPN is needed, only an Internet connection with browser, and a Command Line Interface / Terminal. A Cisco account is required to access the sandbox.You will use the free DevNet sandbox: IOS XE on CSR Recommended Code Always On <-- go here or search the Sandbox Catalog

 

Credentials

  • Username: developer
  • Password: C1sco12345

 

WALK

Task 1: Change the Banner You See on sandbox-iosxe-recomm-1.cisco.com

(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.Picture2.png

Task 2: Create a New Logical Interface and in the Description add your Cisco Community username. Take a screenshot and post it.

RUN

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).

FLY

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.
