Nested ESX 6.7 + No host is compatible with the virtual machine

When you install a nested ESX 6.7 host do not forget to enable the “Expose hardware assisted virtualization to the guest OS” setting. Otherwise you will see errors like:

“No host is compatible with the virtual machine.

“The target host does not support the virtual machine’s current hardware requirements.”

I forget about this setting every time – this is the reason for this short blog post 🙂

To enable the setting right-click your virtual ESX 6.7 host and select “Edit settings”.

In the “virtual hardware” tab expand “CPU” and enable “Expose hardware assisted virtualization to the guest OS”
