You can configure passthrough networking devices on a host.
Before you begin
Launch the vSphere Client and log in to a vCenter Server system.
- Select a host from the inventory panel of the vSphere Client.
- On the Configuration tab, click Advanced Settings.
The Passthrough Configuration page appears, listing all available passthrough devices. A green icon indicates that a device is enabled and active. An orange icon indicates that the state of the device has changed and the host must be rebooted before the device can be used.
- Click Edit.
- Select the devices to be used for passthrough and click OK.
