GNS3Vault CCNP TSHOOT topology, how to load it properly?

Hello does anyone have an idea how to load the gns3vault topology properly?

I have the same filename as mentioned on gns3vault site here

$ md5sum.exe c3725-adventerprisek9-mz.124-12.bin
cf5394041bd7b252ff978149e42ea06f *c3725-adventerprisek9-mz.124-12.bin

I imported the file in my GNS3 installation, and now I have these files installed in ~/GNS3/images/IOS

$ md5sum.exe c3725-adventerprisek9-mz.124-12.image
b50f5b265ed19be4726a1e68fd6810b4 *c3725-adventerprisek9-mz.124-12.image

When I start GNS3 and load the lab. I get this error:

GNS3 management console.
Running GNS3 version 2.1.8 on Windows (64-bit) with Python 3.6.5 Qt 5.8.0 and PyQt 5.8.
Copyright (c) 2006-2018 GNS3 Technologies.
Use Help -> GNS3 Doctor to detect common issues.

=> The image C3725-AD.BIN is missing
The image C3725-AD.BIN is missing

I got the same error. I have not found the time to troubleshoot this, but what I want to try is renaming the image file from the actual name to C3725-AD.BIN If you get a chance to try this let me know how it works.

@wellerk.scott nope that didnt help.

@ReneMolenaar can help? :wink:

Well shucks I was hoping that would work so I could start playing around with that lab lol. Oh well we will figure it out eventually. As soon as I have time I am going to troubleshoot this.

I dont know, maybe you can fiddle with the .gns3 file, and set another image/bin file. Or its a missmatch on the md5sum, if its ever checked.

Anyways, @ReneMolenaar should re-export the gns3 topology in a proper, and new format, ".gns3project" file.

@wellerk.scott I got it up and running. If you open the project file with a text editor you can see the image_md5sum used. I just googled for that md5sum (64f8c427ed48fd21bd02cf1ff254c4eb) and downloaded a new file. I doublechecked md5sum was in fact the same. Then imported the image. Now the important part, just search and replace C3725-AD.bin for whatever your filename was you downloaded (or rename the file).



Awww sweet!!! thanks for letting me know I really appreciate you doing the leg work! I hope the lab serves you well.

Dude you saved me a bunch of time, I started recreating everything manually on my GNS VM server. I was able to open the file and export it, which than allowed me to import it to my GNS VM server.
