    Ive purchased a used C6100 for a very good price. I've read alot on these forums for this server. I'm a bit late to the game but it will still serve me quite well for what I need.

    I'm having issues, though, with VT-D. Has anyone succeeded in fully enabling VT-D?

    Everything suggests it should work.

    BIOS VT-D is enabled.
    Chipset is Intel 5520 which supports VT-D interrupt remapping.
    Processor is L5640 which supports VT-D.

    However, Linux reports interrupt remapping is not supported without enabling unsafe handling.
    It seems it should work out of the box.

    I have tried two later BIOS revisions with no success.

    Has anyone got VT-D and interrupt remapping working on these units?

    Does the C6100 support VT-d? I don't remember since its been awhile. It was the Xeon E5 V2 era that VT-d worked no problem on all servers. The V1 era IIRC had some issues with early revision chips.
