To have the self contained and easy to setup lab environment, I have created the Vagrant Box and setup labs around that. Each lab is consist of some theory, instructions and recording of the terminal, while running those instructions.


$ wget

$ mv Vagrantfile VagrantfileBasic

  • Start the VMs
$ vagrant up

By detault Vagrant would start 2 VMs, as we need them in few labs. If you just want to start one VM, please set NUM_LABVMS environment variable to 1

export NUM_LABVMS=1
  • Check the status of VMS vagrant status
$ vagrant status
Current machine states:

labvm-1                   running (virtualbox)
labvm-2                   running (virtualbox)
