Attempting to do nested virtualization

This post was originally published on this site

I am running the public beta of Mac – Big Sur public beta 3. I see that VMWare Fusion has full Big Sur support based on the website. Currently, I’m trying to run nested virtualization on a Ubuntu-20.04 instance and i’m getting the error “VMware Fusion does not support nested virtualization on this host. Module ‘HV’ power on failed. Failed to start the virtual machine”


I have enabled hypervisor applications in the virtual machine under Processors and memory.


Is there anything I need to do in order to have this run successfully?
