Hi All,
   I'm trying to install a VM on host OS (Redhat 6.1, KVM hypervisor).
I've installed all the required RPMs for KVM and libvirt tools.

Here is the list of libvirt RPMs and KVM modules


libvirt-java-devel-0.4.7-1.el6.noarch.rpm  virt-top-1.0.4-3.8.el6.x86_64.rpm
python-virtinst-0.500.5-3.el6.noarch.rpm   virt-what-1.3-4.4.el6.x86_64.rpm
libvirt-java-0.4.7-1.el6.noarch.rpm     virt-manager-0.8.6-4.el6.noarch.rpm


*When I execute virt-install command I see the below error:

*[root at nsn /]# virt-install*

*ERROR    Host does not support any virtualization options*
I've already cross checked the VMX setting in BIOS and it is enabled.
In VMX Feature MSR register , VT bit is set.

Following is some info about the platform:
*[root at nsn /]# uname -a*

has anyone encountered similar issues while using libvirt tools?
am I missing something w.r.t installation?

Appreciate your feedback.
