Cisco prime infrastructure NCS error while service start

I downloaded the latest NCS image(virtual appliance) and have tried to deploy it locally to test with the equipment I have. I don't have access to an ESXi server and due to this I tried deploying it on Virtualbox. The deployment is successful and I have configured it, however when I try starting it I am presented with the following error:

Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NullPointerException
                       at com.cisco.wnbu.udi.impl.UDIManager.isPhysicalAppliance(UDIManager.java:104)
                       at com.cisco.packaging.WCSAdmin.start(WCSAdmin.java:349)
                       at com.cisco.packaging.WCSAdmin.runMain(WCSAdmin.java:294)
                       at com.cisco.packaging.WCSAdmin.main(WCSAdmin.java:928)

 

Running the `ncs status` command shows that everything is stopped. I read in another forum (dated a year ago that ESXi is needed). Is there a way around it to run a test lab or is it imperative to get an ESXi server to run the NCS.
