Ticket #6380 (new enhancement)

Opened 5 years ago

Want a way to force guest CPU type to some 32-bit variant.

When running Solaris or OpenSolaris guests, one may wish for the guest OS to detect a 32-bit CPU when the host OS is running 64-bit. I know it is possible to force the guest to boot 32-bit but that's not what this RFE asks for. For debugging in the guest, I want the CPU to behave like 32-bit so that the guest OS believes it is running on a 32-bit CPU.

One would think a per-VM setting for this might be easy enough.
