Running VERDE (CM/MC/VDI) on a vSphere - VMWARE ESX server

            Product Line:  VERDE
            The ESX server is capable of doing nested virtualization, so it's possible to run VERDE
            servers that run VDI sessions on this ESX host. You must enable the "vhv.enable=TRUE"
            flag in the .vmx file to take advantage of this functionality.

            File Name:  <ImageName>.vmx

            Look at the last line.  You will need to download the following file from each new instance, add the line and upload back to the ESX server.
