Using Inidgo On Mac VM

Hi All,

By chance has anyone used indigo on a mac running inside of Virtual Box running on a windows machine host? I have everything installed and working great, it is just having trouble seeing the PLM. Any thoughts?

Thanks
Joel

That's an unsupported configuration - it violates both Apple's licensing and our licensing.

Re: Using Inidgo On Mac VM

Hello,

I have a similar configuration that is supported/legal (at least from Apple's perspective) - I have three Mac minis running VMWare ESXi. I'm running a MacOS VM with Indigo on it on one of them. I'd be happy to discuss how I accomplished that, what devices you need to pass through to get Indigo/Insteon support with the modem, networking, etc. but it sounds like what you're doing isn't something you'll find help with here.

Are you running ESX 6.5 on the mini? I’d love to read more about it. I tried a while back on a spare 2012 i5 16GB mini but had limited success. I forget which guide I used, but I seem to remember them being pretty similar.

Re: Using Inidgo On Mac VM

I'm curious about ESXI on Apple hardware too...I have 3 ESXi 6.5 servers (Dell R710s and a R410) running lots of Windows and Linux VMs...

I've considered finding a used Mac Pro of some CPU/RAM levels to use as an ESXi host for any Mac VMs to perform dedicated tasks.

Thanks
Ross
