As a new user to VMs in general and Arista specifically, I have been tasked with learning their product.  This includes their trainer.  My issue is that the VM continues to reboot.  It is configured as follows: Using Oracle’s VirtualBox I have it set for Linux/Other Linux, virtual hdd is EOS-4.15.1F.vdmk as primary master, 1024 RAM,  enabled PAE/NX, Aboot-veos-2.1.0.iso as primary slave.  The VM boots, gets to the admin login, then continues to cycle through killed processes, out of memory: Kill process xxxx, score 81 or sacrifice child, etc., etc.   As a serious newbie, I’m lost here.  It ran overnight so I created a new one using the guide provided from this site.  Appears to be doing the exact same thing.  Any ideas?

James,

Can you give the vEOS instance 2048MB RAM? vEOS requires 2GB of memory. Please reply to let us know if the issue persists with 2GB of RAM for the vEOS VM.

 

Thanks,

Corey Hines

Hi James,

For 4.15, you really want to have at least 2GB of RAM.

You’ll need to power off the VM to change this in the VirtualBox settings.

I’ll give it a shot.  The setup doc indicates that 1024 is recommended.  Thanks.  I’ll let you know.

I added a note to indicate the need for 2048MB RAM in the latest vEOS release(s), thank you for the note and interest in Arista EOS…
