VPP won't start in VM, CPU gen too old?
trying to setup a TNSR VM on an older ESXi 6.5 system but getting:
Jun 10 09:45:31 tnsr-20-2 vpp: ERROR: This binary requires CPU with SSE4.2 extensions. Jun 10 09:45:31 tnsr-20-2 systemd: vpp.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE Jun 10 09:45:31 tnsr-20-2 echo: VPP stopped, modifying TNSR startup mode Jun 10 09:45:31 tnsr-20-2 echo: TNSR startup mode switch : using running DB
and in clixon-cli can't connect to dataplane as tnsr.sock isn't found (obviously). So is the CPU too old for VPP to start? It's an older Xeon system?
Check on https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark.html if your processor supports SSE4.2.
