It is a Virtual Machine image of RouterOS that has full functionality of RouterOS without any kind of conventional RouterOS license, with the limitation of 1Mbit per interface, in future, we will offer unlimited speed with a paid subscription. This allows you to use RouterOS in training classes, for testing, for experimentation or any other purpose, without the need for 24h trial or Demo license.
We provide a generic (RAW) format IMG, VMDK file for VMWare, VDI for VirtualBox and VHDX for Hyper-V. These are ready to use virtual disk images (add as a virtual hard drive to your VM). These are NOT templates for importing.
qemu commands for converting images (if you need to convert to another format)
RAW to VMware:
qemu-img convert -f raw -O vmdk chr-6.31rc9.img chr-6.31rc9.vmdk
qemu-img convert -f raw -O vdi chr-6.31rc9.img chr-6.31rc9.vdi
If you need a bigger virtual hdd (currently 128Mb), resize the image before first run
qemu-img resize -f raw chr-6.31rc9.img +1G
