BIG-IP VE - qemu on an Apple Silicon Macbook

Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone has managed to spin up a BIG-IP VE on an Apple Silicon Macbook using qemu?  

I've been using this guide:

As a reference point, but this is obviously written from the persepctive of a native x86 chipset on the host.  I've tried playing around with what I believe are the relevant settings, but the guest just crashes virt-manager every time I try to launch it.  

Don't suppose anyone has been through this pain and come out the other side successfully and could lend a hand?

  • I am playing with this at the moment. Download UTM and give it a try. I have yet to attempt a BIG-IP deployment yet but that will be quite soon.
