VM SSD passthrough error

Hi all,

 

I have a 250GB SSD that I want passed through to my main 'gaming' VM as I'm feeling a bit of lag and slow speeds when using a vdisk on the cache drive. I looked at the thread here: https://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=48340.0 and attempted to add the entire hdd to the VM but I get the following error message:

 

Not a valid block device location '/dev/disk/by-id/Samsung_SSD_850_EVO_250GB_S21PNXAG664859P'

 

I'm specifying '/dev/disk/by-id/Samsung_SSD_850_EVO_250GB_S21PNXAG664859P' when creating a fresh VM under the Primary Vdisk location (Setting it to manual).

 

Any ideas what would be causing this error?

 

Thanks!

This is what my pass-through command looks like

/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Crucial_CT525MX300SSD1_163313AAD0A9

 

Also edit your VM templet and make sure your Primary vDisk bus is set to SATA

Does passing the device to the VM like this allow SSD TRIM to be performed from the guest?

The guest sees the disk as a physical drive so it passes everything to it.

Moved my 2 6TB Purple Drives from my physical Blue Iris server in a Windows 10 Software spanned disk into my unRaid box. Followed this to the T. Showed up in the VM was even able to import the foreign raid. Didn't even lose my archive video footage. BRILLIANT!! Thanks for this post.
