    Windows + Ubuntu | Nested Virtualization | Ubuntu VM Crashes

    Spageteach Lurker

      Hey,

       

      I'm using a physical Windows 10 PC with VMware Workstation 14 on it.

      I've created an Ubuntu 18.4 VM and inside this VM I also installed VMware Workstation.

      My goal is to create all my VMs inside this Ubuntu VM, because I want to integrate it with GNS3 and Ubuntu is better for that purpose than windows.

       

      I have enabled this two fields on the Ubuntu VM, so there should not be any problems with Nested Virtualization:

      All my VMs' Disks should be located on my physical computer and my Ubuntu VM reach them using Workstation shared folder ["/mnt/hfgs/Spageteach" when "Spageteach" is the shared folder].

       

      But every time I start a VM inside the Ubuntu VM, the Ubuntu crashes and reboots.

       

      "Unicorn-Firewall-MDS" is the VM inside the Ubuntu VM, and I've attached its logs.

      I'm keep seeing these messages on the Log, so it may be something related to the fact that the CD-Rom is on a Shared Folder?

      I don't know, this is just a guess, as I'm not familiar enough with these topics.

       

      Can you assist?

       

      Thanks.
