VM passthrough to NIC ?

Recommended Posts

So I'm currently trying to create a VM that will be my Domain Controller (VLANs, DHCP, DNS, OpenLDAP, PXE, Auth/Radius) Called Controller0 and I'd like to eventually create a redundant Controller1.


My motherboard comes with 4NICs+1IPMI. I'm using 1NIC currently for the server itself and plan to bond 2 for Unraid in the future. The last 2 I'd like to dedicate to Controller0/1 vs having to deal with a bridged connection. Unfortunately I only get the option to select a "Network Bridge". Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since your hardware doesn't support iommu, passing through the 2 ports is out of the question.

In 6.2 RC it's easier to configure the network through the gui, but I'm not sure if you can set two bridges.

Hopefully someone with more knowledge about this will give you an answer on how to do it or if it's possible on 6.1.9.
