Hi Team,

We have installed Vmware workstation in Azure VM (Size: Standard D4s v3) and trying to deploy/create one VM(Windows/GNS3) on top of it, but were getting error : Hyper-V is not enabled.
We have enabled the Hyper-V in Azure VM and re-tried but now we are facing below error while starting the VM(inside vmware):
*VMware Workstation and Device/Credential Guard are not compatible. VMware Workstation can be run after disabling Device/Credential Guard. Visit http://www.vmware.com/go/turnoff_CG_DG for more details.
*
Can you please let me how to resolve same.

    Hi Rajan,

    At this moment you cannot run Vmware Workstation on Azure VMs, Virtualization applications other than Hyper-V are not supported in Hyper-V virtual machines, and are likely to fail. This includes any software that requires hardware virtualization extensions.

    Check this - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/hyper-v-on-windows/user-guide/nested-virtualization#3rd-party-virtualization-apps

    Hope this helps.
