Creating KVMs for ios XE - Documentation links broken

I am wanting to create KVM VMs to run on ios XE, starting with the Cisco CSR 1000v.

I went to https://developer.cisco.com/site/kvm/ to get information. However almost all links for sample code, guides, references point to cisco.box.com and are all broken. I cannot find decent documentation and examples on how to go about it. Anyone has a better resource? Or links that actually work?

Hi - 

 

Thanks so much for reporting the broken links. We were able to track down the root cause of the broken links and they have all been restored to the correct storage location.

 

Stay in touch - we need your sharp eyes to keep improving the site.

 

Thanks,

Anne

Re: Creating KVMs for ios XE - Documentation links broken

hi, just a thought and related to my recent post isr-4k-docker-fedora-ova-usrname-amp-pwd 

 

I am in the process or looking at getting a Linux KVM running on a Cisco ISR router and was directed to this webpage (https://developer.cisco.com/kvm/) from this instruction video from Shabaz@cisco (Deploying Service Containers on the Cisco ISR 4000 Series

 

i believe you may have help get the relevant team to resolve some broken links when this webpage was reformatted, Shabaz's video shows a slightly different looking page. Shabaz downloaded an ubuntu.ova file to run as a KVM on the Cisco ISR router, but on the current webpage it is now a fedora.ova file. I can install this fedora.ova file but dont have a username and password to log into it. I just wanted to ask if the new file is suppose to be an fedora.ova and if so i dont suppose you can find out what the user credentials are, or should the link be to an ubuntu.ova file as it was before the reformatting. Ideally i would like to obtain a unbuntu.ova from your good selves, but also would be happy with getting into this fedora file. Cheers Martin

The fedora.ova credentials are guest with no password. I'll look into updating the site with this info.

sorry but the link in the section below on page https://developer.cisco.com/kvm/ takes you to a video that no longer exists or is private

Re: Creating KVMs for ios XE - Documentation links broken

I think the links are now pointing to the wrong files:-

  • the Demo VM link takes you to the Ubuntu.ova file used in ShaBaz instruction video (though its version 14)
  • the Docker.ova file gives you the fedora21.ova
  • the Tiny VM link provides the SCDemo file (which is huge and includes the minecraft server).

I believe the documentation links are also wrong but are aligned to their incorrect files, so to looking to create a ova to run as a service container on the Cisco ISR 4k we have. I am now finally progressing with more success using the document from the Demo setup guide (it gives you the Ubuntu-Building_a_Service_Container.pdf) and an ubuntu1804.iso from their website.

I also see that the video is not showing up. I'll look into getting it fixed.

Re: Creating KVMs for ios XE - Documentation links broken

I think the links are still not working, i have observed the following today:-

  • "Demo VM" gives a 32GB ubuntu.ova (i think this should be SCDemoVM.ova)
  • "Docker" provides a 163MB fedora21cloud-unsigned.ova (i think this should be the ubuntu_cloud.ova at 253MB which was available early January 2020 but under a different link and seems to be no longer available.
  • "Tiny VM" provides a 72GB SCDemoVM.ova file which includes a minecraft server (I think this should be the fedora21cloud-unsigned.ova file)

 

With this said we have now successfully manged to mount the ubuntu_cloud.ova onto a router and deploy our App to it, but this has taken longer than it should mainly because the https://developer.cisco.com/kvm/ page is incorrect but also inconsistent.

 

notes

ubuntu_cloud.ova - username = ubuntu & Password = <blank>

fedora21cloud-unsigned.ova - username = guest & password = <blank>
