    Hi Community, 

    FYI, I am new to Aruba.

    Scenario: I am trying to build a test lab. Consist of some APs, a mobility controller (MC) and airwave. 

    Progress: I have configured and provisioned the APs to my MC, now, I am tying to link them to airwave.
    However, I do not possess a huge capacity of ram / memory such a server. 
    I wish to setup airwave on VMware that is installed on my on PC (laptop with 8gb ram only)

    May I know what is the VM requirements? And how many APs can the airwave support on my PC?

    Help will be appreciated, thank you.

    I run a  Intel NUC with VMware 6.7U3 which have 32GB RAM.

    Airwave will run on a virtual machine with 8GB (maybe 6GB will work, not sure).

    For a HomeLAB a couple of managed devices should work for testing purpose.
