Re: error: VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX)


I'd not install it in the vm. Just use vagrant to start the bosh-lite on the same host. So you have two vms: 1. You Ubuntu vm, 2. A bosh-lite

I used this setup myself to start developing bosh releases.

You should be able to enable virtualization inside your vm using the advanced setting of the processer configuration. I've added a screenshot of the config.

Select the 'Enable VT-x/AMD-V' option.


I'm pretty sure you won't be happy with the nested virtualization as it is really slow due to the huge amount of overhead.

So please just start the bosh-lite in the same virualbox instance as your Ubuntu vm is running in.

Have a nice weekend as well!

Kind regards

Dear Adrian,

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

because i do not have enough HW resource, i can not install Ubuntu to a phical server.

Could you please share how can i "enable the virtualization inside the advanced cpu config of virtualbox"? does that mean i should do something in my Ubuntu machine (virtual machine), and how?

Thanks in advance.

Wish you have a nice weekend.
