Issue

Our user wants to install a specific (in our case telco-related) OS in VM on OpenStack, and is facing following errors:

    nova.compute.manager [instance: <instance-id>] warning: host doesn't support requested feature: CPUID.01H:ECX.dtes64 [bit 2]
    nova.compute.manager [instance: <instance-id>] warning: host doesn't support requested feature: CPUID.01H:ECX.vmx [bit 5]
    nova.compute.manager [instance: <instance-id>] warning: host doesn't support requested feature: CPUID.01H:ECX.est [bit 7]
    nova.compute.manager [instance: <instance-id>] warning: host doesn't support requested feature: CPUID.01H:ECX.smx [bit 6]
    nova.compute.manager [instance: <instance-id>] warning: host doesn't support requested feature: CPUID.01H:ECX.xt
    nova.compute.manager [instance: <instance-id>] warning: host doesn't support requested feature: CPUID.01H:EDX.pbe [bit 31]

CPU on the compute node does provide the features:
