The best option would be to use dCloud for that purpose.

e.g. https://dcloud2-rtp.cisco.com/content/instantdemo/cisco-sd-wan-viptela-v1-instant-demo

hi,

 

I would prefer to have evaluation license and set it up from scratch and test with different scenarios. there are eval license for other cisco products like FTD etc. and also other sdwan vendors also provide evaluation licenses. hopefully eval license option will be available soon.

You can download virtual images (OVA, qcow2) from CCO for controllers and vEdge and create your own lab topology.

You can also create device serial numbers in PnP portal and upload same to vManage.

hi

 

Thanks for the reply. do i need license to add vedge devices in Pnp or once vedge serial number is added to pnp portal, i can use it for lab purpose for 30/90 days?

Ever figure this out, looking to create a custom demo myself

Highlighted

nope. still not able to figure out about the demo license.

You can only add a vedge list to vmanage if you have a Smart account / Virtual account at Cisco, where you have your vedges listed. Normally they get added there once you purchase them.

These links require "To Download this software, you must have a valid service contract associated to your Cisco.com profile." Hence, no learning version.

Correct, you can't do this by yourself. You can use dcloud for testing.

dcloud doesnt let you do configurations, only view the basics

Highlighted

Thanks. I kind of thought so.

If you can download the files , is there a workaround regarding adding serial numbers ( whitelist ) for pnp server. It seems for this we need enhanced service contracts. Anyone know this or have a recommendation ?
