some info:

  • both boards are Xeon V1/2 capable
  • I've checked the NIC "BIOS" setup several times and I've enabled SR-IOV there
  • I am running 7u3d on the new board
  • I am running &u3c on the old board
  • in Hardware => PCI devices, both ports are listed as disabled. I am trying to enable it but all I get is "an error occured during host configuration"
  • I'm only using the Vmware web client.
