ACS 5.3 is supported on a hardware appliance,
VMWare ESX and VMWare Server. Even though not supported, it works without modification
in VMWare Player. None of the above helps us if we want to test it with switches
or routers in GNS3. While version 5.2 could be installed in VirtualBox, v5.3
consistently failed installation with “Unsupported hardware” error message. After
trying all possible combinations of virtual hardware in VBox it still refused
to install. After some hacking I eventually managed to get working.
Installation requires modification of the ISO
image provided by Cisco and a bit of cheating in the kickstart file and pre-creation
of partitions in the VM. We will need ISO editor (ISOpen or MagicISO), text
editor (such as Notepad++) and a Linux live CD of your choice.
VBox hardware configuration:
OS Type: RedHat
CPU: PAE/NX enabled, VT-x/AMD-V disabled
Storage: Disk 70GB (I used dynamically expanded),
Controller SCSI, SCSI Port 0
Network: Adapter Intel PRO/1000 MT
Serial Ports & USB: Disabled
All remaining settings stay at defaults.
Now we need to modify the kickstart file – ks.cfg –
found in the root of the installation disk.
