• Starting my gaming VM fills up the log and i get no display

    • Minor



    To start with, a lot have happen in the last days on my server, I had a usb drive crash with no backup, so I had to start all over with configuration.


    I'm using 6.10-rc2, yesterday I had no problems starting my gaming VM. During the day I corrected some warnings in the "fix common problems", it was nothing big, mostly "enable this yyy".

    But today, starting my VM the syslog fills up immediately and my VM doesn't output anything on the display.

    This is shown in syslog, this is my gpu.

    Dec  9 07:29:11 Tower kernel: vfio-pci 0000:0c:00.0: BAR 1: can't reserve [mem 0xc0000000-0xcfffffff 64bit pref]

    And this is spammed until my log is full.


    As I said, yesterday this VM worked. and after I used it the last time I did a server shutdown. And now this morning it doesn't work.

    I would be happy if i could get any help with this.

    An update.

    I was able to get it to work again, this is what i did
    * remove gpu from VM config

    * remove gpu from vfio.

    * reboot server

    * add gpu in vfio

    * reboot server
    * add gpu to vm config.


    This morning it once again stopped working after a server shutdown.tower-diagnostics-20211218-0939.zip

    And this time the fix above didn't work.

    Any suggestions?

    Does the Graphics card ID stays the same between each reboot ?


    Are you using the Nvidia driver on Unraid ?


    Yes, the GPU ID stays the same.

    No, i do not have the Nvidia driver installed in unraid.
