I have Windows server 2019 running as Azure VM. I am trying to create virtual machine inside windows server as nested virtualization. I have Hyper- V running and containers enabled on windows server using this link - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48255871/failed-to-start-the-virtual-machine-mobylinuxvm-because-one-of-the-hyper-v-com

Still I am getting this error when I create virtual machine -

    Hi @akshay95 ,

    only the Dv3 and Ev3 VM sizes are supporting nested virtualization with Hyper-V:

    Hi

    Make sure all HyperV service are running, but more importantly, can you click See detail inside your Windows, to know what is missing.

    Thanks

    Which VM size did you deploy? I believe nested virtualization is only supported on the D_v3 and E_v3 series. Possibly the D_v4 and E_v4 series also.

    This is the size of my windows server 2019 azure VM -
    Is it not possible to run nested virtualization on this machine?
    If not is there any way I can run Linux container on this machine?
