Install RouterOS in Hosted VM

Sun May 24, 2015 9:38 pm


I've seen plenty VM images, and ISOs on how to install RouterOS, but my quest is a little more challenging.

I need to get a demo Mikrotik online to showcase our CloudRadius software. I have rented a VM loaded with CentOS 6.6 at a hosting company, however, they can only load standard OS Images. They cannot use the VM image or ISO I give them from the Mikrotik website.

Question: How do I load RouterOS in a CentOS VM?

There is no way. You cannot run MT VM in another VM (nested virtualization). Best way to do it cheap is to run demo on super low cost dedicated server like OVH, etc. There are kvm vps providers that do MT images or custom iso - just Google - I know for sure ramnode does.
