New Cisco VIRL Video Added to Course!


Thanks to Scott Morris, we just added a new video to the VIRL course at CBT Nuggets. Scott walks us through a Cisco VIRL installation in a VMware Vshpere/ESXi environment to compliment the VMware Workstation installation we already demonstrate.

This brings the total number of videos to 21.

If you have already completed the course and might be interested in this new video – please revisit the main course page.

Happy labbing!
