Virtual machines networking not working

garlicFrancium asked:

My BMC had virtualization disabled when I installed RHEL6.9. Does that mean the OS installation has dropped all the virtualization packages like libguestfs, etc? if so then what is the best solution to get them?:

  1. enable Virtualization in bios and then reinstall the OS
  2. enable Virtualization in bios and then using a package manager install the necessary files required for VMs

My answer:


Whether your operating system has various software installed has no relation to your BIOS settings. You configure these separately. Of course there is no need to reinstall the operating system; you can simply install the packages you want But RHEL 6.9 is old; you should probably use a more current RHEL distribution.
