Extreme XOS – a VM to pratice

I’ve recently found this post:

Always interested in discovering new networking stuff, I decided to give it a try.

To download this virtual image, you will be asked to create an Extreme Network account to obtain your ExtremeID. This is free.
With this ExtremeID you will be able to download the ExtremeXOS VM which also free!
You will find all the Extreme Networks ressources on and the VM at

They are also plenty of software (trial versions) available on the xkit webpage.


To run the VM, open the archive and import the .vbox file in Virtualbox.
I advise you to modify the CPU settings of the virtual machine if you do not want to burn your CPU 🙂
