not_working_nested_virtualization_esxi5.5_u3

Hello!

Help to understand why the nested virtualization on esxi 5.5 used on the dell poweredge r830 server does not work. Made the following points:

- addes to the file /etc/VMware/config

vhv.enabled = “TRUE”

hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = "FALSE"

-in the settings of the virtual machine added a parameter  "option/general -> hypervisor.cpuid.v0 value FALSE.

-in the settings of the virtual machine changed the parameter CPU/MMU Virtualization <- "Use intel VT-x/AMD for instruction set virtualization and intel EPT/AMD RVI for MMU virtualization"

the result - not working

You should plan on upgrading away from unsupported 5.5 since your hardware supports it.

ESXI 5.5 software itself installed without errors on my hardware.  The instructions "intel VT-x / AMD for instruction set virtualization and intel EPT / AMD RVI" my processor supports.  Why shouldn't it work?
