Dual nic, vmbr and passthrough


Jan 19, 2023
Going ro run Vyos on my proxmox host.

My original plan was to passthrough entire x710-da2 nic to Vyos vm.

However thinking about it maybe I should just pass through one port and set up 2nd port in a bridge and attach bridge to vyos?
So wan interface would be the passthroughed port and LAN interface would be the bridge.
(x710 ports are in separate iommu groups)

This would eliminate the 2nd nic which I would need to actually access proxmox.

Any drawbacks to this setup?
