This is cool. Great instructions.
No problems getting it going on my Ubuntu 16.04 box.

It works great with the reference topology as well: https://github.com/CumulusNetworks/cldemo-vagrant

I did have a case where the oob-mgmt-server provision took quite a while and all the switches booted before getting an IP. Just a restart fixed that.
