Purpose of the APIC-EM__GA_HW-MiniLab-1?

Sorry, for this newbie question:

Today, I had scheduled a APIC-EM__GA_HW-MiniLab-1. I could connect via VPN and I could access the network elements. I also found the login credentials how to log into the APIC-EM. However, although I was searching for it like a maniac, I have not succeeded to find the IP address or FQDN of the APIC EM. Neither in any of the emails, nor on any of following pages:

https://devnetsandbox.cisco.com/Docs/APIC_EM_GA_Minis/Sandbox-APIC-EM-GA-ML1.png


Here are also some screenshots I have taken, but all of them are missing the information I was looking for:

2016.05.03-21_38_58-hc_002

2016.05.03-21_57_31-hc_002

2016.05.03-23_37_31-hc_002

Isn't the APIC-EM included in the lab? Am I supposed to download the APIC-EM SW and install it on a 64 GB DRAM VM, as the installation specs say and then use it to discover the network?


Thanks for any hint to the right direction.

Best Regards,

Oliver

Your picture has helped me to figure out, what I am doing wrong. I have tried to reserve the lab again.

After reserving the lab, I was automatically redirected to the topology, which had shown the right IP address as in your screenshot. Then I had lost the Internet connection (going by train), and the topology was gone.

On https://devnetsandbox.cisco.com/RM/Topology, I have seen a note that the lab is "Currently reserved by me", but I did not know how to re-connect to the lab. Therefore, I had clicked the lab icon and I have reached at a topology without APIC-EM IP address:

2016.05.04-09_38_03-hc_001

Clicking the "Reserve" button did not make sense, since this will reserve the lab a second time.

Now, I have found how to re-connect to a reserved lab:

On https://devnetsandbox.cisco.com/RM/Topology, click on Reservations in the left pane and then on the green lab name:

2016.05.04-10_22_11-hc_001

This will lead you to the right topology and the APIC-EM IP address is displayed:

2016.05.04-09_34_32-hc_001

Okay, that was a newbie problem.

@yachwen: Thanks a lot for your helpful answer.
