Activaiting CPU AVX for an Proxmox VM

Posted on

An image I needed said it needed the CPU to support AVX. Yes it was the Mongodb image. Some searching and I found the solution.

First check if your CPU supports it, if it does, here is how you activate it!

Go to the VM

Choose Hardware

Choose CPU


Click on Type, way down, to the last place in the list, choose host.

Now you will have to restart the VM but after that, there should not be any issues starting, as for me, the mongoldb container!
