Sometimes it is useful/required to expose the underlying physical CPU to the virtual machine.
To do this, you need to modify your VM’s template to include the following raw attributes:
RAW=[ DATA=”<cpu mode=’host-passthrough’/>”, TYPE=”kvm” ]
You can add these attributes by following these steps:
- Choose your VM template
- Click on ‘UPDATE’
- Click on ‘Other’
- From the ‘RAW data’ dropdown menu, choose ‘KVM’
- In the DATA text box, insert: “<cpu mode=’host-passthrough’/>”
Alternatively, you can directly edit the RAW template from the ‘Advanced’ update tab of the template.
