PCIe Passthrough


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I'm exploring the posibility of running a PCIe card through to a VM on ESXI 6.0. I know you can do it with other software because of the video link below but I'm having trouble finding clear instructions/videos on how to do it on VMware.


Is there a VMware expert who can give me guidance? Thanks in advance!

After installing the GPU, from the VSphere client go to Configuration>Advanced Settings>Edit>A window titled "Mark devices for passthrough" will open>Put a check next to the GPU you want to passthrough>Click OK


I believe you will now need to restart ESXi. After restart right click on the VM you want to pass the GPU to>Edit Settings>Add>PCI Device


Make sure you check compatibility for your GPU with ESXi.


Looking forward to trying unRAID for this as it seems to be something they are promoting.
