Hi everyone,

Have there been any SMU's released for XRv 5.1.1?  I tried downloading and installing a SMU with regular ASR9K SMU's, but it complains:

It sure acts like a real XR router which is a good thing.  Even if there were some dummy SMU's that would be cool.  I need to apply some SMU's to my real ASR9k, and XRv would be perfect to practice on.

Hi Tim,     Unfortunately I

Hi Tim,


    Unfortunately I don't know this answer, but just as a heads up (if you don;t know it yet) you can test the installation without actually doing it with the command "install activate {pie name and location} test".

XRv needs its own SMU created

XRv needs its own SMU created for XRv, the system won't let you install ASR9k's SMU. Currently, i don't see SMU in 5.1.1 for XRv, unfortunately.
