Run NX-OSv 9000 on EVE(UNL)

Posted on January 8, 2017

Refer to how to add NX-OXv 9000 to GNS3

1. Download image files

Here is the NX-OSv9k image file from Cisco (nxosv-final.7.0.3.I5.1.qcow2). Please note that you must have a service contract with Cisco in order to download it.

No I can’t provide the image to anyone.

2. Copy image to eve(UNL)

change file name to ‘hda.qcow2’

copy source file to ‘/opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/nxosv9k-7.0.3.I5.1’


/opt/unetlab/wrappers/unl_wrapper -a fixpermissions

3. Add a New node for nxosv9k

Copy the php file to ‘/opt/unetlab/html/templates/’

Change the Console type to ‘telnet’

4. Start the node

Note: Change the Console to ’telnet’ before you start the node.

This step needs your patient because the terminal will be shown as a blank screen for a while(about 15 – 20 seconds). The boot process takes about minutes, then it will prompt you:

Abort Auto Provisioning and continue with normal setup ?(yes/no)[n]: y

5. Done


The advantage of eve is it already improved Qemu with UEFI for Cisco Nexus9Kv. More info:
