RouterOS on VMWare ESXi 3.5

Wed Mar 17, 2010 5:46 pm

Hello,

I have 2 servers running VMWare ESXi 3.5 (not ESXi 4.x)

Both of these servers do not support 64-bit virtualization.

I would like to test RouterOS as a Virtual Appliance.

Has anyone been able to set this up successfully?

Thank you

Thanks for the confirmation. Looks like I'll do a RouterBOARD instead.

thank you martini, unfortunately, ESXi 4.0 requires 64-bit virtualization, which my servers do not have.
