  • Hyper-V in VMWare environment

    Greetings,

    We are running a VMWare environment on esxi servers. We need to enable hyper-v in the bios of the esxi servers in order to add a role in w2k8 servers.

    Just wondering if this will affect our environment in any way if we have hyper-v enabled in a vmware environement??

    If you are looking to run Hyper-V as a VM under ESXi - this is not possible.

      not as a vm but we wish to add the remote fx role which requires hyper-v to be enabled at bios level.

        Hyper-V is not enabled at BIOS. It is an OS feature. In BIOS, one must enable no-execute and virtualization support. If you are running VMWare, it is highly likely the features are already enabled.

        No-execute, usually XD (execution disable, Intel term) or NX (no execution, AMD term) means that a memory page can be flagged as data or code, and trying to execute instructions from a data page will throw a hardware exception.

        Virtualization support is called AMD-V (sometimes Pacifica) or Intel VT-x (aka Vanderpool). This provides some additional CPU features which are used to give the host OS more control the processor whilst running a full-featured guest OS.
