Labtainer VM Images

Labtainer Pre-built Virtual Machine Images

While Labtainers can be installed and used on any Linux host, e.g., VM, that supports Docker containers, we have also pre-packaged VM images for those students or instructors who wish to use an existing VM, and thus avoid the step of installing Linux.  The images have Docker and the Labtainer framework pre-installed.

The user ID for these VMs is "student".  The password is "password123".


Right click on either of the two links below (depending on whether you have installed Virtual Box or VMWare), and save the file onto your computer.   Do not "open" the link, just download it. Then follow the respective "Directions" to import the .ova file as a virtual machine.

VirtualBox VM Appliance  (sha256: 50c678b5e2a13cfeeb2382eeaa838d338db01ec340b1f70e4a63568b6b17d11f)

Directions: Start VirtualBox, and then: File / Import Appliance / LabtainerVM-VirutalBox.ova

VMWare VM Appliance  (sha256: 666df9f9df17bc15d0ae0373530272b7411fac1941cb422aa145cbbc23f4ac96)

Directions: Start VMWare, and then: File / Open / LabtainerVM-VMWare.ova

                          on VMWare Fusion: File / Import / LabtainerVM-VMWare.ova

                    When/if VMWare complains about the format not matching ova standards,

                    select "retry" and it should continue.

After downloading, installing and booting the virtual machine, wait for the virtual machine to settle out.  The window may resize a few times, and a terminal will display progress of downloading updates.  After that terminal disappears, then refer to instructions on the screen of the remaining terminal for information on how to run labs.  And please refer to the Labtainer Student Guide.

AgainThe user ID for these VMs is "student".  The password is "password123".
