Then you need three row  replay.supported true  replay.allowBTOnly true, replay.allowFT true after adding this it look like see the snap below:-

After adding the rows you can click ok and then again ok, now if all other requirement of FT are configured you can enable the FT on VM even this is running on nested esxi host.
