Problem getting passthrough enabled on devices

Im trying to enable passthrough for ASM1062 and USB 3.1 via thunderbolt interface to a guest.

As you can see i have the option to "enable" passthrough, when i toggle enable it shows as "enable/restat", after restart it shows "enable/restart" again and after a second reboot its disabled.

Im unsure if why it jumps back to disable after enable, advice would be appreciated

Did you hard reset the server after you enable the device for PCI passthrough? Currently PCI passthrough requires a soft reboot which to type in command of reboot in ESXi console or restart through UI clients. Hard reset or named "cold reboot" will not activate PCI passthrough settings. Once you soft reboot you host, check your device if it works on "active" state.
