VFIO error in HP ML30 GEN 9



I am using SLES 12 OS and I am trying to bind a PCIe device using PCIe Passthrough solution. When I complete the binding operation, after one minute, the machine's fans start to work very fast, the healt led turns red and blinks and after some minutes, it turns again green.


On the other hand, the GUI of the OS became very unresponsive, I could not even complete simple commands like "ls" or "lspci", so I had to restar the machine manually.


Do you know if I need to update or do something with the machine in order to achieve this PCIe Passthrough goal?

I am attaching some logs from "/var/log/messages"
