Migrating from physical to hyper-v

Question

I'm in a process of migrating to hyper-v 2019, been reading some forum post but still a bit unclear about the process.

1. Should i passthrough the drives or the HBA card? With DDA looks like it's possible to just passthrough the HBA?

2. I read SMART isnt passed if i passthrough the drives, is this also the case for HBA passthrough?

I pass through the HBA for Drivepool. I use Dell Perc H310 cards and the SMART data is all visible, as it should be because my Windows VM has direct access to the HBA.

 

edit: Wrong Chris I know, but hopefully helpful? ;)

Also there is something i forgot to ask, were you able to passhthrough the igpu as well?

You should be able to pass the iGPU, but I am using old Xeons so I can't test it. Keep in mind that you then lose the host video if you do that. I'm no Hyper-V expert though, I use Proxmox.
I do know that all four of these options need to be ticked when adding a PCIe GPU in proxmox:image.png.bf48c2b3cf1f2d5fc7f95fff6118380e.png

Is the Hyper-V equivalent obvious to you? I've only ever used Hyper-V on my local PC for testing and no passthrough.

 

I have been testing VM pass-through of my HBAs for over a year now, and just moved my bare-metal machines over to VMs as the setup passed my testing to my satisfaction. Remember to de-activate your bare-metal Drivepool/Scanner licenses FIRST though... or you'll end up pestering Mr Drashna to get that mess fixed.

Ah i thought you were using hyper-v lol..

Thanks for the license tips will keep that in mind.

I'm leaning towards hyper-v cause most of my environment is windows based..
