VMware vSphere 5.5 (ESXi 5.5) Virtual Machine inside Virtual Machine nested Guests

Today I am going to show how to hostVirtual machine inside virtual machine. I have installed VMwarevSphere (ESXi 5.0) as a virtual machine inside VMware Workstation 7 on my Windows 7Laptop. Now for learning & testing purpose I want to install Windows 7 Virtual Machine on my VMware vSphere (ESXi5.0) server Virtual Machine.

Please check my last post how to install VMware vSphere 5.0 (ESXi5.0) on virtual machine,
Installing VMware vSphere 5.0 on VMware Workstation
So my VMware vSphere 5.0 (ESXi5.0) virtual machine is ready on my VMware Workstation. So we need to do add below settings inside “VMX” file of VMware vSphere virtual machine.
monitor_control.vt32 = “TRUE”
monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = “TRUE”

Now you can install the Virtual Machine inside Virtual machine of VMware vSphere 5.0 Server. Check below Screen Shots for more details.
