Hi, I've noticed that the NVMEoF Initiator doesn't actually work on a Hyper-V host with a Virtual-Switch Interface binded to a Mellanox nic port, it only works with a physical port, is there any flexibility to possibly consider the NVMEoF initiator be able to run on a Hyper-V host using a virtual-rdma-nic?

You are right, the Initiator is not working from such NIC. Already have it on our roadmap. Stay tuned!
