Full Clone XRv VM with Fusion PRO

For different labs we might need to duplicate VMs: more IOS XR virtual routers, more vSRX Firewalls, etc.

Here is the procedure needed to multiply IOS XRv VMs. The same procedure can be used for any VM we need to safe or multiply.

1. Full Clone XRv VM

1. Open VMWare Fusion UI > Right Click on existing IOS XRv VM > Create Full Clone

2. Rename the new created VM

3. Edit .vmx configuration file and modify the console port

serial0.fileName = "telnet://127.0.0.1:9002

Note: each cloned VM will have different generated MAC addresses.

4. Turn ON the cloned VM.

2. Problem

If I try to power ON too many VMs, I get the “Not Enough Memmory” error.

It is very important the order of the VM I turn ON and the hardware planification.

  1. Thanks for the suggestions you have shared here. Something else I would like to convey is that computer system memory demands generally increase along with other breakthroughs in the know-how. For instance, when new generations of processor chips are brought to the market, there is usually an equivalent increase in the type demands of both the personal computer memory and also hard drive room. This is because the software operated by means of these processors will inevitably surge in power to make new know-how.
