OpenBSD Virtualization in Action

BSD’s recently have progress for things called virtualization. FreeBSD have BHyve, NETBSD have NVMM and OpenBSD have VMM. OpenBSD VMM have been around for 1-2 years maybe and i decided to try it now. My laptop running OpenBSD 6.6 with 4GB of RAM which is having enough spare RAM to launch a VM. First thing i download OpenBSD 6.6 ISO image. My first VM will be OpenBSD guest to make things simple.

Next, we need to enable VMD through /etc/rc.conf.local by adding “vmd_flags=”. We can also start vmd immediatelly using “rcctl start vmd”.
