Nested virtualization?

Nested virtualization?

Operating system
  1. Linux
Does anyone know if it's possible to get nested virtualization working under VMM? I've installed an evaluation of Windows Server Core and it works, but when I enable Hyper-V and reboot the guest VM blue-screens on boot.

I can't see any options for VT-x or similar, so I'm guessing that this probably is not possible -- but I'm wondering if anyone has managed to get it to work?
I've installed Proxmox 8.1 on VMM (ds1823xs+/DSM7.2.1) with
modprobe -r kvm_amd
modprobe kvm_amd nested=1
and Proxmox installed just fine.

LXCs working perfectly, but VMs hangs short after boot. I dont get no error logs so I dont know(yet) what the problem is.

Did some more testing with a Debian(12) VM on VMM(ds1823xs+/7.2.1) where i created another Debian(12) with virt-manager(qemu/kvm)...did not work. Im sure Synology has done som "magic" to prevent us from running other hypervisors on their HW to force us to buy silly ass expensive VMM-licenses to be able to do live migrations etc...yuck!
