AirWave on VMware Fusion

Hi,

 

Has anyone tested to install AirWave on Mac OS X 10.7 running VMware Fusion?

 

Just wondering if it is possible. I'm not going to use it for any huge installations, more like a pilot/test server.

 

I don't have the Mac or the VMware fusion yet, so I can't test by myself.

You can do it, but it can be painful.  VMWARE not only requires a decent amount of memory, but also fast disk access.  If you have a MAC that has at least 4 gigs of memory and a single processor to dedicate to the VM, you could scrape by.

Hi, sounds good!

 

I'm planning to have a mac mini with quad core i7 and at least 8GB of RAM. Wasn't really the hardware I was worried about (because I know how to scale that, regarding to the guides), more if the VMware fusion worked.
