  • You can still passthrough PCI-devices that are unbinded by VFIO.

    I recently did some hardware changes and decided to remove one of mine NVMe controllers from the VFIO bind. I created later on a pool with 2 MVME-disks on it. 

     

    But i made a mistake. I did forget that the NVME-controller was still assigned to one of my VM's.

     

    I think this is a bug because there is normally no option to bind a PCI device that is unavailable because it's not binded at VFIO.

     

    Fortunately enough I managed to recover my pool because it was on Raid 1.

    It's not a bug and normal. Binding to vfio is recommended precisely to avoid touching a thing from both sides but is not technically required.

    Ah that makes sense. I didn't know that.
