    Building a Topology File Set

    The process for building a topology file set depends on your operating system. Windows users can use WinZip or another Windows-based compression tool to create .zip files.

    UNIX and Linux users can build a topology file set with a .tgz extension by performing the following steps:

    1. Create the directory structure specified below:
      • <home>/active/
      • <home>/active/configset/
    2. Add topology.vmm, the VMM configuration file that defines the topology, to the active directory.
    3. Add the Junos OS configuration files for each network device referenced by topology.vmm to the <home>/active/configset/ directory.
    4. Create a topology file set, suitable for submission, by doing the following for .tgz file types:
      1. Change to the <home>/active/ directory.

        cd <home>/active

      2. Tar the files.

        tar –cvf mytopology.tar *

      3. Zip the files.

        gzip mytopology.tar

      This creates the mytopology.tar.gz file.

    5. Change the extension on the file from mytopology.tar.gz to mytopology.tgz.

    Topology file sets must have a .zip or .tgz extension to be uploaded.
