ISR 4221 Guestshell Network Access

So I read that as of IOS XE 16.8.1, you can enable the guestshell with only 4G of RAM which is what our ISR 4221s have.  How do we configure this? I get the following when trying:

 

Test_host#guestshell enable
Interface will be selected if configured in app-hosting
Please wait for completion
% Error: No interface configuration for guestshell

 

The goal is to get iperf on the guestshell and talking to another iperf server.  Is this possible using Gi0/0/0 on the router with some kind of NAT?

Got the same error Cat9300 16.8.1a when doing "guestshell enable"

% Error: No interface configuration for guestshell

Re: ISR 4221 Guestshell Network Access

ok, so i found this (might help)

 

you need to add the following:

 

app-hosting appid guestshell
 vnic management guest-interface 0
end

 

i found this on a C9500. It seems to be automatically added on this platfrom.

But on a C9300, after an upgrade to 16.8.1a, it might be missing and hence guestshell won't start.

After adding the above, it worked.

Re: ISR 4221 Guestshell Network Access

So I've managed to get past this by switching around the order in Cisco's documentation and added this before enabling:

app-hosting appid guestshell

app-vnic gateway0 virtualportgroup 0 guest-interface 0

  guest-ipaddress 192.168.35.2 netmask 255.255.255.0

app-default-gateway 192.168.35.1 guest-interface 1

app-resource profile custom

  cpu 800

  memory 256

 

But now i get the following:

HUWANOR1TLHS0164NR01#guestshell enable

Interface will be selected if configured in app-hosting

Please wait for completion

There any update on trying to find out why this error is happening?

Re: ISR 4221 Guestshell Network Access

Is there any external media installed such as a USB disk? I found it was creating some directories on the usbflash0: by default and seemed to have a problem finding them later. I removed the USB stick, destroyed the guestshell and disabled iox, re-enabled iox and then was able to get guestshell to enable properly.
