Installing RHEV Hypervisor on VMWare Fusion

If you are interested in Red Hat Virtualization and couldn’t afford to buy machines for the hypervisor, using VMWare would be one possible cheaper way to achieve it. By using nested virtualisation technology, you can easily build an environment.

Only thing you need to before the installation is making some changes in the vmx file that is created.

1) Change or add below to enable nested virtualisation.

vhv.enable = TRUE

2) Disable the extension of the emulated APIC interface by adding below.

apic.xapic.enable = FALSE

3) Change the emulated driver to a SAS type

scsi0.virtualDev = "lsisas1068"

And after then, during the boot, you need to change ‘quiet’ to ‘noquiet’ by pressing ‘Tab’ key. Otherwise, you won’t be able to see any progress and will stuck in the first screen.
