I have a supermirco 9xscm-f mainboard in my esx server. It has two intel network cards. I would like to setup ubuntu 12.10 64 with 82579LM in passthrough mode. That means this nic does not use the esx interface for paket forwarding. I have done the follwing troubleshooting but I am not able to get this device connected.
