enable vm virtualization support in esxi

June 24th, 2013

If you want to enable your newly created VM's virtualization support, you can follow these steps:

  1. In Vm setting -> Options -> CPU/MMU Virtualization, select either the third for forth checkbox:enable_virtualization
  2. Go to esxi console, locate your VM's vmx configuration file(under /vmfs/volumes/Datastore/Nimbula_Node05 in my case), and add a line:

vhv.enable = TRUE

After these steps, your vm should now support nested virtualization. You can runĀ egrep '(vmx|svm)' --color=always /proc/cpuinfo to confirm whether virtualization is enabled or not now.

Good Luck!
