I recently installed GNS3 v0.8.5 Lion DMG package on a MacBook Pro with OS X 10.8.4 (12E55). Installation was very simple and I was able to launch the GNS3 application. After configuring the "General" and "Dynamips" preferences, I clicked on the "Test Setting" for Dynamips and got the following green message:
"Dynamips 0.2.10-amd64/Darwin unstable) successful"

I don't like the word "Darwin unstable", but it is green and successful. I then proceeded to add a new IOS Image (c3750e-universalk9npe-mz.152-1.E.bin) and once again "Test Setting". This time I got an error saying "Unable to initialize router instance".

dhcp-10-87-120-72:~ jcolom$ /Applications/GNS3.app/Contents/Resources/dynamips-0.2.10-OSX.intel64.bin -P 3725 -r 128 --idle-pc 0x0 "/Users/jcolom/GNS3/Images/c3750e-universalk9npe-mz.152-1.E.bin"; exit

I though it was a corrupted image,but I tried other images and all get me the same message.

Hi,

Quote:
c3750e-universalk9npe-mz.152-1.E.bin


This is not a supported IOS image. Try with a image starting with c3725... like c3725-adventerprisek9-mz.124-15.T14 for instance.

In fact, you CAN NOT emulate a switch with GNS3. Limited number ow switching features are available with NM-16ESW card plugged into routers (3660, 3725, 3745, for example).
Please read http://www.gns3.net/hardware-emulated/ for full list of emulated hardware.
