Nested Nsx Vmware Nsx on Intel Nuc Lab Setup Part 1

While the VMware Hands-on Labs are extremely cool and useful, I found it always very learning-full and nonetheless fun to build my own labs. To keep it fun and keep down the noise and powering costs I decided to buy some Intel NUCs, which have a good price tag and are very low on energy.
