I'm testing Nova Compute from OpenStack project inside of a VMware Workstation v7 virtual machine, and I get this error:
libvirtError: internal error no supported architecture for os type 'hvm'
This is because the VM can't run hardware accelerated Xen VMs (hvm), that is, guest CPU doest not have Intel-VT or AMD-V support. According to VMware, "Running Nested VMs", I can enable this support adding those parameters to ".vmx" file:
guestOS = "vmkernel" monitor_control.vt32 = "TRUE" monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = "TRUE"
But, it doesn't work, running 'grep vmx /proc/cpuinfo' inside the VM does not report Intel-VT support, also running "kvm-ok" from "cpu-checker" package I get:
# kvm-ok INFO: Your CPU does not support KVM extensions KVM acceleration can NOT be used
Can I configure VMware Workstation to run KVM acceleration or Xen HVM? thanks!
