I had many requests to demonstrate how to use the ASDM GUI to manage an ASAv running inside of VIRL. Here is the video demonstration of how to do it. Enjoy!

Adding the Cisco ASAv to EVE-NG


This video walks you through adding the Cisco ASAv to EVE-NG per the instructions I outlined for you at my blog – here. Have fun!

Adding the ASAv to EVE-NG


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 update
apt-get install libguestfs-tools
cd /opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/asav-941-200/

guestfish -a virtioa.qcow2
mount /dev/sda2 /
touch /use_ttyS0
umount /

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!
