SATA Pass through for proxmox

Recommended Posts

bar1

Hi, 

 

i am trying to install freenas as a VM on proxmox and 1 of the requirement is that i do a PCI passthough for the sata controller....

 

i am just trying to understand how many sata controllers does the HP microserver gen 8 actually have?

i need to passthrough 2 drives.

If I remember correctly all of the SATA ports in the Gen8 are on the same controller. You would need to add a controller to the server to have one available to pass through.

When the five SATA ports are setup as the B120i they are treated as one controller. If you want to run them as AHCI they may show up as two controllers one port and four ports. I am not sure how well passthrough works on AHCI.
