JUNOS Installation on GNS3 – Part 2: FreeBSD Installation

Posted on Updated on


For this Installation, we will use FreeBSD version 4.11 that is readily available from the FreeBSD ftp server

We start off by creating a virtual Machine that will use the FreeBSD OS. 

Image

 

We will go with a standard memory of 512 MB

Image

 

We will create a 8G Virtual HardDrive

Image

Image

We will choose a fixed size harddisk

Image

The allocated size is 8GB

Image

 

The HardDisk will take some time to create. Patience Pays 🙂

Image

 

Once the Virtual Machine has been created, we are taken back to VirtualBox interface

Image

Select the created machine so that we can make changes to it’s setting. Click on Settings

Image

Oops1 I forgot to indicate that we are using the 64bit machine. But not all is lost :). Lets correct that.

Image

 

Lets add the ISO image. We need to show the path to the image

Image

 

Change the boot process to start with CD

Image

 

Start the machine but skip kernel configuration. we choose the standard installation process

Image

Image

 

Next, we need to create fdisk. Hit A to use the entire disk then Q to exit. Next we Install BootManager

Image

Image

We need to partition the disk as shown below. Use C to create the partitions

Q to Finish the setup. This is what we have so far 🙂

Image

 

We will set distribution to User

Image

Installation complete. Am not really sure about the post installation features…lets just try activating minimal for now

Image

For some reason, I guess its necessary to have an ethernet interface.

ImageImageImageImage

We need to Exit Install. Then switch the machine off. Change the boot order so that it starts with the HardDisk and not the CD…and we done

Image

You will be required to provide the login and password that we created during installation.

Image

 

Power off the machine. Forgot to modify some changes.

Enable extended processor features:

Image

 

Disable Audio

Image

Enable Serial Ports

We done 🙂
