I am going to need some ASAv action in EVE-NG next week for a project I am working on. Here are the steps I hope work! 😋 I grabbed these from the EVE-NG site and added my own elaboration where I thought necessary.
I will try and shoot a video of these steps next week as well.
Step 1: Acquire the asav941-200.qcow2 or asav952-204.qcow2 files for EVE-NG use
Step 2: Fire up WinSCP or FileZilla and connect to the EVE-NG IP address for FTP purposes
Step 3: Upload the appropriate .qcow2 from Step 1 to the root of the EVE-NG system
Step 4: Create the directory in EVE-NG for the ASAv image storage:
mkdir -p /opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/asav-941-200
Step 5: Move the image to that directory:
mv asav941-200.qcow2 /opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/asav-941-200/virtioa.qcow2
Step 6: Run these commands to enable Telnet access instead of VNC:
apt-get install libguestfs-tools
guestfish -a virtioa.qcow2
mount /dev/sda2 /
Step 7: Clean and fix permissions:
/opt/unetlab/wrappers/unl_wrapper -a fixpermissions
That does it! The image should now be ready for addition as a Node in the EVE-NG Web client. Happy lobbing!

Great! Thank you for this.
I bought a dell R710 just to do a bare metal eve-ng install. Worth dime and it wasn’t event that many dimes really.
Is eve free ?
EVE-NG is free – a not free version is EVE-NG Pro
Hi Sir, where can i download the ASAv versions supported with eve-ng? Thanks.
After doing the steps I get output:

I do not see my ASA in EVE-NG
can someone help me??
I cannot log into my asav on eve-ng. I am getting a not a bootable disk error. I have tried everything and I don’t seem to get the solution for this. I hope you will be able to assist me. Thank you
I love EVE-NG, but goddamn, is it finicky… Trying to install this in a new EVE-NG environment. I know it works, I’ve already got a baremetal EVE-NG environment, but that thing’s EoL, so gotta redo it all on a virtual system.
Followed the guide on the official site and yours, but unfortunately, I get this as a result when trying to mount a partition while in libguestfs:
eve-ng libguestfs: error: mount: /dev/sda2 on / (options: ”)
Gonna try updating my EVE-NG installation and maybe some more ASA versions…
