Cisco have been distributing the UCS emulator for a while now, and thanks to some changes, I am now faced with having to deploy some of the systems, so today I deployed the emulator on VMware Fusion on my MBP.
You can download the emulator in a zip or OVA, and it can be run on VMware ESXi, Fusion, Workstation or Player.
I decided to go down the OVA route.
Setting it up
On fusion, I imported the OVA and gave it a name, it is also recommended to run the emulator with around 4GB of memory, however 1GB is the minimum amount.
