Using remote hypervisors

In Chapter 6, Peeking under the GNS3 Hood, you explored the way GNS3 controls multiple instances of Dynamips and orchestrates communication between them. You can use this knowledge to create rather sophisticated topologies with multiple hypervisors running on multiple computers, all controlled by a single GNS3 central controller.

There are two key concepts:

  • Firstly, you will need to know how to run Dynamips as a standalone application on a server. You will also need to store firmware images locally on that server, and know where those images are stored in relation to the server's file system.
  • Secondly, you will need to configure GNS3 to be aware of both the location (IP) of the server, and the images stored on that server. ...
