Hello.  My questions regards Oracle VirtualBox and setting up the Arista partner training.  I have my VMs setup as prescribed, but find no place for installing IP addresses on each VM.  Yes, I’m very new to this, but I have to get up to speed rather quickly.  So, the IPs getting installed is important and on the Ubuntu server portion, there is no guidance as to what type of Ubuntu server I should install on the last VM.  There are 10 offered during the install.  So, any help is appreciated, any docs that might give me some insight into the arcane command line commands would be great to.  Thanks.

Hi James,

In case you are talking about vEOS. You may change the ip for management of each virtual switch using cli.

interface Management1
ip address

If you are talking about the setting of each net related to Virtual Box.

You have the setting of each network created in virtual box environment. The names you may have are VirtualBox Host-Only Network Adapter, VirtualBox Host-Only Network Adapter#2, VirtualBox Host-Only Network Adapter#3…….

And for each VirtualBox Host-Only Network Adapter you have the option to define the ip network and the dhcp option too.

In case you want to change the ip of each VM. you may need to login each VM to fix the ip setting.

Hello James,


Just to top-up what Ronald already provided:

There is a page describing the vEOS setup for Virtual Box :

If you use a 4.14 or 4.15 vEOS version, make sure to allocate 2GB RAM. 1GB was enough for 4.13 or older, but not anymore.
