Following on from: -
here's one I've yet to solve ....
Having overcome the earlier issues with Kata Containers 2.0 on Ubuntu Linux 20.04 running under VMware Fusion 12 on macOS 11 ( phew ), I'm hitting a similar/different issue ...
Starting a container using Kata 2: -
sudo ctr run --rm --tty --runtime io.containerd.kata.v2 docker.io/library/ubuntu:latest ubuntu
ctr: failed to create shim: failed to launch qemu: exit status 1, error messages from qemu log: qemu-system-x86_64: error: failed to set MSR 0x48d to 0x5600000016
qemu-system-x86_64: ../target/i386/kvm.c:2701: kvm_buf_set_msrs: Assertion `ret == cpu->kvm_msr_buf->nmsrs' failed.
From a fair amount of Google fu, I'm thinking that this is a nested virtualisation issue i.e. I'm using a nice stack of software here ....
macOS 11.4 Big Sur
VMware Fusion 12.1.2
I've not yet got to the bottom of this ...... watch this space ....
