So much of my lab is virtualized that I am continuously tweaking the networking and settings within VMware. Most of the lab runs on VMware 5.5 so there are some manual tweaks that I have to do that are done in the GUI of 6.x. This note is so that I don’t have to keep googling how to enable nested virtualization.
In order to expose hardware acceleration within a VMware host:
/vmfs/volumes/56f54bc4-e6a63540-8ac0-782bcb1f2794/WinGNS3 # vi WinGNS3.vmx
Add this line:
vhv.enable = "TRUE"
