Juniper vMX vFP appliance
The vMX is a full-featured, carrier-grade virtual MX Series 3D Universal Edge Router that extends 15+ years of Juniper Networks edge routing expertise to the virtual realm. This appliance is for the Virtual Forwarding Plane (vFP) VM and is meant to be paired with the Virtual Control Plane (vCP) VM.

You need KVM enable on your machine or in the GNS3 VM.
Documentation for using the appliance is available on http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/
Be advised that since vMX runs as two VMs that need to be connected together in order to function, here is an example of how you cross connect them:
If you downloaded the ESXi archive from Juniper, you need to do the following:
1) Extract the .tgz archive, which will result in two folders being created. One is named "OVA", and the other is named "Upgrade". You can delete the "upgrade" folder if you choose.
2) Enter the OVA folder, and extract vFP .ova file. 7zip is recommended for this, in both Windows and Linux.
3) Once the vFP .ova file is extracted, you'll have 3 files, but you only need the single .vmdk file, as indicated in the screenshot below. It isn't required, but cut and pasting this file to the same folder you have the juniper-vmx-vfp.gns3a template file saved, will let the import wizard find it, instead of you needing to manually point it to the required file.
4) Once the wizard locates the needed .vmdk file, you can proceed as normal, with the wizard taking care of the rest.
If you downloaded the KVM archive from Juniper, you need to do the following:
1) Extract the .tgz archive, which will result in six folders, and 2 files being created. For our purposes, we are only interested in the "images" folder. Feel free to delete the rest, since the extracted archive is over 6GB in size.
2) The image files we need for both the vCP and vFP vMX VMs are located in this folder, so here are ones that you need to keep (the rest can be deleted):
The vFP VM only requires the vFPC .img file, but you will need the other three for the vCP VM.
3) Just like the ESXi version, it isn't required to cut and paste this file to where you saved the juniper-vmx-vfp.gns3a template file, but it is recommended, because it makes the import process proceed more quickly.
4) Once the import wizard locates the necessary file for the vFP VM, the import process will proceed as normal.
