I’m working towards attaining the CCNP: Data Center certification. I’ll be compiling a list of resources and tips that I used along the way.
VMware Workstation Pro – https://store-us.vmware.com/workstation_buy_dual_new
UCS Emulator – https://software.cisco.com/download/beta/1850014776
ACI Simulator – https://software.cisco.com/download/home/286283149/type/286283168/release/5.2(1g) (If you don’t have access to the software you can work with a Cisco SE to grant you access)
Use this command in Linux to merge the downloaded files into a single OVA to import into VMware Workstation
