Virtual Machine management has specific system requirements. If you plan on using Virtual Machines, make sure you have the correct settings before proceeding:
  • Internet connection using Ethernet (Wired LAN) network for public Linux* bridge network creation.
  • 8 GB minimum memory on the Host Machine.
  • At least 2 GB is allocated for each Virtual Machine.
  • At least 20 GB of hard disk available for each Virtual Machine and 32 GB of hard disk for each Windows Virtual Machine.
  • KVM hypervisor enabled for virtualization environment of the Virtual Machine.
  • Host machine kernel version of 5.0.x or above from official Ubuntu* release.
  • Intel® VT-x enabled in BIOS settings for virtualization technology, where Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) for IA-32, Intel® 64 and Intel® Architecture corresponds to
    Intel® VT-x
  • Intel® VT-d enabled in BIOS setting for I/O virtualization, where Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) for Directed I/O corresponds to
    Intel® VT-d
Using the default kernel available on the host machine is recommended, as the configuration of a custom kernel might cause challenges during virtual machine set up.
