7/15/2020 - VM support using KVM as the backend has arrived, including support for PCI passthrough and nested virtualization.
Nightly images for TrueNAS SCALE are built every 24 hours, at around 2AM Eastern (EDT/EST) time. Online updates are created every 2 hours and can be used via the UI’s online updating page.
ISO’s can be downloaded here:
The nightly images are very much a WIP until we get farther along in our development process. They should be suitable for very adventerous users and developers who are not afraid to use the command-line in some instances.
Supported via the UI:
Supported via the CLI (Currently)
PCI Passthrough Devices
In order to use PCI passthrough devices with VM’s, following steps should be followed so that the PCI devices shows up in UI when we want to create a PCI device to be attached to a VM.
virsh nodedev-list pci.
virsh nodedev-detach pci_0000_26_00_0where
pci_0000_26_00_0is the name of the PCI device.
The above steps should be performed when there has been at least 1 VM created via UI. Please ensure that the device an be safely used with the guest as if it’s for example part of a CPU and we try to pass it through to the guest, that might result in a crash and the system will only recover after a reboot.
