AHV – Configuring VM to run a nested hypervisor

Nutanix now provides limited support for nested virtualization, specifically nested KVM VMs in an AHV cluster as of AOS with AHV-20170830.58. Enabling nested virtualization will disable live migration and high availability features for the nested VM. You must power off nested VMs during maintenance events that require live migration.

To enable nested virtualization for a VM, run the following command on a CVM.

$ acli vm.update "VM NAME" cpu_passthrough=true
