FreeNAS direct link 2 XCP-NG hosts

Does anyone know if it’s possible to have a pool with 2 hosts on XCP-NG and use DAC from both to a FreeNAS using a 2 interface card on the FreeNAS?
I currently have this setup using NFS share on FreeNAS through a switch and everything works well but the number of VM’s being used would benefit from a faster connection.
I got a dual 10Gb card for FreeNAS server setup the static IPs and was able to get DAC to one XCP-NG host, on the pool the second host showed the SR as offline since it couldn’t communicate with it using that address. When I tried adding DAC to the other host with its own static IP it showed the SR was in use and I couldn’t add it.

You need a switch to get that working properly. This one is budget friendly and has DAC support.

MikroTik 5-Port Desktop Switch, 1 Gigabit Ethernet Port, 4 SFP+ 10Gbps Ports (CRS305-1G-4S+IN)

Good to know, I figured that would be the case just thought I’d ask in case I was missing some information.
Thanks Tom.
