I'm really confused by this article. This doesn't leave virtual machine users locked out and doesn't require any form of physical TPM if you're on a server. Just enable vTPM support that comes with vCenter v7.0.2 and give your virtual machine a vTPM. Works without issues, not sure what the big deal is. vTPM is already a requirement in DOD / Government networks for Server 2019 and newer. Is the fact that this article is saying that it's going to cost money to use Windows 11 as a VM, because if so, that's not true either. If your hardware supports Windows 11 with a physical TPM, then you can also install a Windows 11 VM on that guest OS without issues. This article is really misleading and just trying to spread misinformation. You don't need a physical TPM in HyperV servers for Windows 11 either.
Please stop these fake news. A virtual machine has a virtual TPM. This has nothing to do with the physical machine or with the presence of a physical TPM in it. Nothing is changing for VMs.
Of course you are not going to use your physical machine’s TPM directly and/or forward it into a virtual machine (even though you can). For two reasons:
First, you do not want dangerous and untrusted game console firmware to ever touch your TPM and its key slots. B-class closed-source software waste belongs into a safe virtual machine container with a virtual TPM, not on real hardware.
Second, your virtual machine should be, ideally, live-migratable or, at the very least, offline-migratable. For that reason you need a virtual TPM that migrates with it, not a physical TPM that hardwires it onto one particular physical host.
This entire piece of hoax translates into:
— open your virtual machine settings (e.g. virt-manager),
— add a virtual TPM to the virtual machine,
— Click — Click — Done!
FFS, why is there so much fuss around it??? The interwebs are full of this nonsense. Ain’t there any real problem to write about?
