No VSF in simulator?

    I plan to stack a couple 6200Fs and I wanted to do a simulated network using GNS3.  The command line doesn't have any VSF options, only VSX.  Documentation and online tutorials do mention VSF on the CX 6200's and I even see a reference in the GUI.  Was this just not included in the simulator?

    Hi,

     It is not possible to use all the features of OS-CX with an OVA (see release-note) :

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Feature caveatsThe AOS-CX OVA is a simulation environment and is not designed to be fully feature compatible with AOS-CXrunning on switching hardware in the Aruba 6000 or 8000 series of switches. The following features may beconfigurable in the AOS-CX Simulation environment, but are non-functional:

    VSF

    CoPP
    Link detection (link is always on)
    Classifier policy
    ECMP
    MAC ACLs
    QoS

    ADC (NAE)
    UDLD
    Mirroring
    ERPS
    Firmware upgrade
    DCBx
    PBR
    VXLAN support with L3 VTEPs
    UBT
    VLAN translation
    Watchdog
    PBT
    MAC Lockdown/Lockout
    Captive Portal
    VXLAN support with VSX


    The OVA is a virtual switch and unable to determine the link status of interfaces so a simulated status isused. You may need to manually adjust the status of an interface using the shutdown or no shutdowncommands from the CLI to get the desired results.
