Want to get a look at ES-Lab CloudShell before your event? We happen to have demonstration environments set up for each region to allow you to do just that. Please see your regional event coordinator for the login and follow the links in this article to help you along the way.
NOTE: The demo virtual machines are READ-ONLY so no configuration changes or advanced commands can be run on them. The environment is meant to be used as a demonstration of the CloudShell environment, not as a functioning lab.
First, we want the experience to be a good one, so make sure you have a compatible browser and you know a little about our connectivity recommendations.
Next, log in and have a look around! You'll need that username and password from your event coordinator.
Once you have mastered the topology page look and feel, you'll want to actually connect to some devices. Our demo environments are connected to a vSRX and a Student Desktop VM in our Sunnyvale lab environment. These is the same virtual machines that our classes use running in the same data-center.
- login: lab; password: lab123
- Connecting to Resources
As you will see the connections are done via a clientless HTML5 user interface to the hardware device (called a "Guacamole" server). Due to some HTML5 limitations, direct copy and paste is not supported at this time. However there is a utility to help with that and we have an article on that here:
As mentioned at the top of the article, the environment is meant for basic demonstration and the systems are Read-Only so the demo options are limited. But that doesn't mean there isn't plenty of other cool stuff that you can do in your live lab environment. Be sure to check out some of our other articles here.
Thanks for checking out ES-Lab CloudShell!
