I have 2 questions about running Hyper-V or Virtualbox on Windows VM.

  1. What size of VM operate Nested Virtualization? Does for example D4s_v3 run Nested Virtalization?
  2. Can I run Hyper-V/Virtualbox on Windows 10 Pro Azure Virtual Machine or I have to use Windows Server 2019 Database Azure Virtual Machine?
    I'd like to set 2 VM on Windows VM: Kali Linux and Metasploitable.

    You'll need Dv3 or Ev3 series with Windows Server 2016/2019 or Windows 10.

    @Bechir Gharbi @Dave Patrick @Xiaowei He

    Appreciate to share your comments and feedback regarding running a VB, is it working somewhere, note that I am using latest release on Windows 10 pro on D_v3 series.

    I tried as well to run Windows 7 image on the same managed Win 10 VM on Hyper-V. with no luck
