I'm a bit confused about the abilities and licensing of virtual RouterBoards (CHR and classic x86 ROS). But lets begin with the environment:
There is a isolated network (no Internet access) with VMWare ESXi servers. The plan is, to use this servers to install some Routerboards, instead of using Mikrotik Hardware Routers.
At first sight the CHR should be the best choice, because it's build to run virtualized. But after consuming the licensing information from help.mikrotik.com, there is a problem with CHR licenses: "A running CHR instance will indicate the time when it has to access the account server to renew it's license."
That's a problem, if there is no internet access :-/
Is there a CHR "offline activation and runs forever" license?
Is it possible to use the classic x86 ROS version with the appropiate license in a virtualized environment, or are there any flaws, that I have to be aware of?
