If the command returns nothing, the driver is not loaded. In practice this maximum is much lower, since each VF consumes resources. Reboot the machine and check if the SR-IOV driver is loaded by re-running the lspci command from the first step of this procedure. Each of these “pseudo-devices” can be assigned to a VM Guest. In addition, if the domain is running, it will be hotplugged.

To detach a VF interface, use 825776ns virsh detach-device command which also takes the options listed above. In order to do so, you need to collect some data first. Intel Corporation Virtual Function rev 01 VFs do not get a fixed MAC address, it changes everytime the host reboots.

Make sure to replace the example values igbigbvf and igb by values appropriate for your driver. The following example shows the lspci output for the dual port Intel NS network card: In the following example a check for the igb driver for the Intel NS network card returns a result. The theoretical maximum for VFs is per device consequently the maximum for a dual port Ethernet card would be If the domain is inactive, the operation will fail.
PFs also have the ability to move data. The device is not persisted in the XML and won’t be available in the guest on next boot.
Make sure to replace the example value igb by a value linnux for your driver. Before loading the driver, make sure the card is properly detected by running lspci. This option will always add the device to the domain’s persistent XML. Each of these “pseudo-devices” can be assigned 82576n a VM Guest. If the domain is inactive, the device is added to the persistent XML and will be available on next boot.
Specify the data you acquired in the previous step here.
The minimal content of the file needs to look like the following:. This option affects the current state of the domain. Reboot the machine and check if the SR-IOV driver is loaded by re-running the lspci command from the first step of this procedure. In practice this maximum is much lower, since each VF consumes resources.
Make sure to replace it by appropriate data from your setup. If the command returns nothing, the driver is not loaded.
This option will only affect a running libux. It introduces physical functions PF and virtual functions VF. This option will only affect the persistent XML, even if the domain is running.

VFs lack the configuration and management part—they only have the ability to move data and a reduced set of configuration functions. Numerical values from the lspci output shown in Section If the domain is active, the device is hotplugged but not added to the persistent XML. That means the driver is already loaded. In addition, if the domain is running, it will be hotplugged.

In case a device is already attached to the host, it cannot be attached to a guest. The first two entries represent the PFs whereas the 8256ns entries represent the VFs.
Use rmmod to unload a driver. PFs are full PCIe functions used to manage and configure the device. To make it available for guests, detach it from the linjx first:.
Now make sure the driver is loaded on boot.
