    VM halted after the passthrough disk is disconnected

    Dear All; I have a VM that I used as a NAS and it works like a charm except that when I remove the disk (in passthrough mode), Proxmox halt the VM. I understand the logic, but in my case, the VM should not be stopped but should continue to run since the harddisks are setup in RAID2 mode. How...

    If data is on single disk passthrough instead of PCI passthrough of the whole HBA to my Unraid VM, what is the cleanest way to migrate data after?

    TLDR: I am just starting out! My HBA is a few weeks out and at the moment i have single disk passthrough (3 disks in total) to my Unraid VM with no data. I anticipate there will be some data by the time HBA comes in as i continue to iterate on my new system. What would be the cleanest way to...

My goal was to virtualize TrueNAS with HDD passthrough and another VM with Batocera with iGPU passthrough for emulation. The probem is that when I run VM...
