Configure an existing VM to allow nested virtualization: running performant VMs inside another VM, with access to the host's virtualization extensions.


Virt capable host, latest Fedora VM and latest Fedora host.

How to test

  1. Start with a shutoff VM
  2. Open virt-manager, go to the VM details page for that VM.
  3. Click on the CPU page.
  4. In the CPU model field, type 'host-passthrough', click Apply
  5. Start the VM
  6. Inside the VM, do sudo yum groupinstall virtualization
  7. Verify that the guest has virt correctly setup with: sudo virt-host-validate

Expected Results

No obvious errors occur.
