In part 2 of this series, we will configure 10 CSR routers, and connect it to the virtual switch that we created in Part 1. Unlike many other tutorials on the Internet that demonstrates how to get serial over network to console into the routers, I am going to take a different approach on how to console into the routers. Main reason is that serial over network is only available for either 60 days as a demo or you have to get the enterprise license which is over $2000.
I normally would do it for free but I have had tons of requests and questions regarding the lab setup and scripts. So for a nominal fee I will configure your entire VMWare ESXi server / all the routers / the Linux VMs / auto loading scripts. More importantly it includes an easy to use WEB GUI to load the config files. Contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
