Nested Virtualization

Do you need to run a VM in Azure which this VM it is not supported or it’s giving problem to be upload to Azure. Use Nest Virtualization instead!
First thins to take into account:
  • You can do this on either Windows Server or Windows 10.
    Only “_V3” Azure VM’s support nested virtualisation.
Deploy a VM,  once you have logged into this VM run the followoing commands in an elevated PowerShell session:
Install the Hyper-V role:
Install-WindowsFeature -Name Hyper-V -IncludeManagementTools -Restart
Create a new network Switch
New-VMSwitch -Name “InternalNAT” -SwitchType Internal
Get the Interface Index number – take a note of this number to use next
Set an IP Address and create the network:
New-NetIPAddress -IPAddress -PrefixLength 24 -InterfaceIndex 13
New-NetNat -Name “InternalNat” -InternalIPInterfaceAddressPrefix
Once this is complete you can then open up Hyper-V manager and create your “nested” VM, and this is where you create your Linux VM (or whatever you want). Just go and download the ISO file from the relevant website and create a new VM as per normal.
Now you only will be charged for the VM in Azure and not for the two virtual machines
That’s all
