Okay, so let's open up the VirtualBox manager. And let's import the Arista virtual machine we just downloaded so click on new. Let's give it a name. Arista one. In the Type drop down menu, choose Linux. And in the version drop down menu, just use Fedora 64 bit, click on Next, the recommended RAM memory size is one gigabyte, so let's leave it as the default.

Next, click on use an existing virtual hard disk file, and then click on this little folder icon right here. Now let's choose the V OS lab vmdk file, open, create. Okay, now before starting the virtual machine, let's go to settings and first go to storage right here in the controller Id just click on this icon right here saying empty and then go to the This this icon right here, choose a visual optic disk file. And we are going to choose the a boot v EOS a dot zero dot zero dot ISO open. Now let's go to audio. And let's disable audio and for the network adapters for now we are just going to go with default.

And then we are going to change them as necessary for connecting with a local PC. So click on OK. And now just go to start to boot up this virtual switch. And the boot process has begun. It may take around a minute or two for the boot process to be complete. And to have the log on prompt being displayed. So let's wait for this to finish.

And this is the log on screen. I'm going to use admin as the user and Python as the password because I have already set the password for this device. And now we can power up this machine by simply clicking on power off. Oh Okay, now since we said we need three virtual machines for this section, I'm going to click on this virtual machine, and then clone the name of the clone or restart to. Also, you should have this checkbox checked reinitialize, the MAC address of all network cards. Next, full clone, and then hit clone.

And this way, we have just created another virtual machine based on the same Arista operating system. If you check the settings for this newly created virtual machine, they are the same as we configured for the first for the original virtual machine. Okay? And now let's do this once again, for the third virtual machine. So clone, Arista three, next, full clone and hit the clone button. Okay, great.

So we have created the three virtual machines that we're going to use later on to test our scripts against. In the next lecture we are going to discuss how to connect the local PC, the host operating system with each of these virtual machines in order to have full connectivity within our network. So see you in the next lecture.
