I did spend some time reading other posts before starting this, but I couldn’t see what I needed to know. So I am throwing my questions into the fray as well.
My plan was to build a Proxmox-based system to run 2-3 LXC containers, maybe 2-3 Linux servers and at least one Win 10 VM with passthrough.
The idea was to have the OS on two NVMe (RAID 1), the VMs on two SSDs (RAID 1), and then have an HBA card (and drives) that would be passed through to FreeNAS for a storage pool.
I keep reading about motherboards that shut off or degrade PCIe slots or SATA when using NVMe’s.
What motherboard would be good for 2 NVMe’s, 2 SSD, a Radeon 5600XT, an LSI 9211-8i, and maybe even a NIC later on?
I’m not locked into AMD or Intel. I just want to be approaching this in a less dumb than usual manner.
The HBA isn’t mandatory, just thought it might be the way to go.
Please let me know your suggestions! Thank you.
