So I have a pfsense VM that I want to pass through three of the 4 ports of my Intel i350 Network Card integrated in my HP dl360e g8 server running XCP-NG 8, and what I found online is the best way to do that is through SR-IOV. However, when I follow this guide: https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX130897 However, I get this error on the console when booting:
igb 0000:02:00.[0 through 3 for all my NICs): can’t enable 7 VFs (bus 03 out of range of [bus 02])
The networking tab in the XCP-NG Center Application also says “Host need reboot” in the SR-IOV Column.
I also noticed that there was specific instructions at the bottom of the instructions for my NIC, but when I tried those it just said 4 VFs instead of 7VFs in the error like I set it to in /etc/modprobe.d/igb.conf file.
I have verified that all virtualization features, including SR-IOV are enabled in my BIOS. I have also tried doing a PCI pass through using the instructions here: https://github.com/xcp-ng/xcp/wiki/PCI-Passtrough with no success, vm doesn’t start when I attach the device to it. Any Ideas?
