CSR Configuration steps:
=================================
! Check if service is running
en
show iox-service

! Configure Basics
conf t
hostname CSR1
interface GigabitEthernet1
no shut
ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
exit
exit

! Enable the service
conf t
iox
exit
show iox-service

! Configure Virtual Port
conf t
interface VirtualPortGroup0
ip unnumbered GigabitEthernet1
exit
exit

! Enable the guestshell
guestshell enable VirtualPortGroup 0 guest-ip 10.1.1.2

! Access guestshell
guestshell run bash

! Add DNS information to Linux container
echo nameserver 8.8.8.8 | sudo tee —append /etc/resolv.conf

! Need to set up routing so Router knows how to route
conf t
ip route 10.1.1.2 255.255.255.255 virtualportgroup 0
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.1.1.254
ip domain-lookup
ip name-server 8.8.8.8
exit

! Check stuff on guestshell host
======================
sudo ifconfig
cat /etc/resolv.conf

!Add a user
sudo useradd david
sudo passwd david

! Install nano and Python 3
sudo yum install nano -y

! You don’t need Python3 for these script examples
sudo yum install python3

=================================
Python Script:
=================================
import sys
import cli
cli.executep(‘show ip int brief’)
cli.executep(‘show ver’)
