  1. everything in the same group has to be passed to the vm. for further reference, please watch for alternatives in IOMMU configuration/breakup.
  2. Looks to be a problem with how it is reading your hardware:
  3. yes, just change your assignments in the web gui to make the 10gbe card eth0. I pretty much run the setup you describe. I don't know if you have enough pcie slots for what you want on your mobo, so you'll have to check that out.
  4. Would be easier to implement as a set of toggles like acs override. -----edit I modified my 6.7.0 syslinux.cfg to include the appropriate text from above. System appears to be normal and the "vulnerable" status is shown in terminal. I didn't benchmark anything because I'm lazy.
  5. What about toggles like for acs override?
  6. I would be interested in this, right after multiple cache pools and arrays!
  7. your comment has zero to do with my suggestion. if after trying seabios and it doesn't work, the next step is to look at what bios the Mobo is running and see if there is an update. from reading your other posts, I get that you're a bit frustrated. but your problem of xml changes with a virtual bus after changing vm settings have nothing to do with just trying to get a fresh windows 10 install.
  8. try using seabios instead of ovmf
  9. I just wanted to pop in this thread and thank you all for posting all your trial and error issues/solutions. I installed Sophos a few days ago after reading this thread, and after a little learning curve with setting up NAT and a few other settings I needed (from my pfsense install) I have a near perfectly running install (just have to setup Nat reflection, but not a big deal) Thanks!
  10. thread hijack: I upgraded one of my servers to 6.7.0 today and received a message from fix common problems that my cache (dual ssd mirror) and 2 enterprise drives had their cache off. I input the command above for each and they enabled and I saw fast speeds like I haven't had before on the server cache drive(s). So why does this happen? and is the command above persistent or needs to be applied at reboot?
  11. Le sigh..... Another OS update, another disappointment from lack of inclusion of a wanted feature in an already wonderful product....
  12. updated the hp ml30 g9. seems functional but I don't recall having the following warnings in 6.6.7 (but they could have been there): May 14 10:33:07 Tower kernel: ACPI: Early table checksum verification disabled May 14 10:33:07 Tower kernel: Warning: node 0 [mem 0x00000000-0x7bffffff] overlaps with itself [mem 0x00100000-0x4a614fff] May 14 10:33:07 Tower kernel: pci 0000:03:00.0: BAR 6: failed to assign [mem size 0x00100000 pref] May 14 10:33:07 Tower kernel: pci 0000:09:00.0: BAR 6: failed to assign [mem size 0x00100000 pref] the two devices with failed memory are IOMMU group 1: [8086:1901] 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v5/E3-1500 v5/6th Gen Core Processor PCIe Controller (x16) (rev 07) [1000:0072] 03:00.0 Serial Attached SCSI controller: Broadcom / LSI SAS2008 PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS-2 [Falcon] (rev 03) IOMMU group 11: [15b3:6750] 09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Mellanox Technologies MT26448 [ConnectX EN 10GigE, PCIe 2.0 5GT/s] (rev b0) But both appear to be functioning. Anything to worry about?
  13. no worries about misunderstanding. I use to have a link but couldn't find it regarding virtualized nics. I think the only other is a Realtek one. You could search "KVM virtualized NIC e1000 virtue vmxnet3" and see if anything else pops up. But those 3 are the most used.
  14. Total sarcasm in my previous post. But there is no need to throw the baby out with the bathwater as you suggest. The above is is your view/opinion on user experience and not necessarily indicative of total user behavior. If you're using icons only as a metric and determining factor for what system information is available "underneath", then the icons we have as descriptors fail miserably in that job. Nerdpack uses a dropbox icon. Stats settings has the same icon as stats in the tabs. Backup/Restore is a shield but not antivirus. And why? These aren't stop signs or traffic lights, these are visual enhancements made to make the web GUI look nicer, which I think they do. These are not apps on your phone. Want further proof? Take the text away from the tabs and leave icons only. The settings icon takes a bit to understand, as well as plugins. Docker is fine, but what is that calendar icon? Oh, it's the apps... On the settings page, both the scheduler and auto update applications are refresh/reload circles, but which one is bolder? Can you tell me without looking? And why is the scheduler not a calendar (like the apps store icon is.) See. It's not about app icons like on your phone. It's all about the text with a little graphic element beside it only for the purpose of differentiation, not identification. And that is where your beef comes from (imo) not understanding the functions of the icons. This is not a swipe at all the UI icon changes or work that goes into it, I actually have no problem with the choices however much a stretch they are (or how colorful or lack of colorful they are) because they are essentially eye candy for the text descriptors. And we know this because I'm 100% certain you haven't memorized all the icons and their meanings and settings they link to, like the apps on your phone. To offer a contrasting user experience, I never look at the icons as a guide to settings/functions. I either scan the page visually or in a pinch, use control/command F and search for the text on the page of what I want. (I don't know why I wrote so much on this, I don't really care that much as long as the interface works. But looking nice is a bonus and I am appreciative of the work that goes into it. Regardless of your response, I won't be continuing this discussion further as I'm sure you will disagree with me 100%, and that's fine too I guess.)
  15. 6.7.0 final release now in top of thread
  16. We could solve all these icon color change/problems if we had some sort of accompanying text descriptor by the icons themselves, so you'd know what you're clicking on....
  17. still didn't list the virtual Nic, only the bridge it uses for network access. I don't use virtualized ubuntu (but have on bare metal) anyways, here's a test you can try to rule out if it's the virtual Nic: in your xml, it will tell you what virtual Nic you're using ( probably virtio) <interface type='bridge'> <mac address='52:52:01:4j:66:74'/> <source bridge='br0'/> <model type='virtio'/> try changing to e1000-82545em or vmxnet3 and retest. I don't know off the top of my head if ubuntu has drivers for those preloaded, so it may not work. OR you may need to add another network interface with one of those virtual nics while keeping the "sort of working" one, then do a hardware update for the drivers to download.
  18. 10gbe is "suppose" to work with the vmxnet3 virtual interface but falls laughably short in both high Sierra and Mojave. It also has some weird issues with upload speeds to some websites. My discover and ultimate disappointment are here: I do run a solar flare 10gbe card passed through with no issues on high Sierra (haven't tried Mojave with it due to nvidia driver unavailability with that vm's gpu). iPerf shows 9.1-9.5Gbps to my server from the vm.
  19. Might help to know what kind of os the vm is running and what virtual nic you are using.
  20. along with multiple cache pools, right???!!!?!!? 🙏
  21. I’ve run raid controllers without the battery backing, no big deal, just lose the ability to retain any data in the cache if your server loses power.
  22. You use an sas expander as mentioned before with one hba
