Make sure to replace it by appropriate data from your setup. In case a device is already attached to the host, it cannot be attached to a guest. Intel Corporation Virtual Function rev 01 PFs are full PCIe functions used to manage and configure the device. To make it available for guests, detach it from the host first:. Now make sure the driver is loaded on boot.

If the command returns nothing, the driver is not loaded. VFs do not get a fixed MAC address, it changes everytime the host reboots. This option will always add the device to the domain’s persistent XML.
In the following example a check for the igb driver for the Intel NS network card returns a result. Make sure to replace it by appropriate data from your setup.
CONFIG_IGB: Intel(R) 82575 PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet support
Before loading the driver, make sure the card is properly detected by running lspci. In case a device is already attached to the host, it cannot be attached to a guest.
Specify the data you acquired in the previous step here. Numerical values from the lspci output shown in Section Each of these “pseudo-devices” can be assigned to a VM Guest.
The first two entries represent the PFs whereas the other entries represent the VFs. The minimal content of the file needs to look like the following:.
In practice this maximum is much lower, since each VF consumes resources.

Liux the machine and check if the SR-IOV driver is loaded by re-running the lspci 8257n6s from the first step of this procedure. In order to do so, you need to collect some data first. VFs lack the configuration and management part—they only have the ability to move data and a reduced set of configuration functions. It introduces physical functions PF and virtual functions VF. PFs are full PCIe functions used to manage and configure the device.
The following procedure is using example data. The following example shows 28576ns lspci output for the dual port Intel NS network card: PFs also have the ability to move data.
If the domain is inactive, the device is added to the persistent XML and will be available on next boot. Intel Corporation Virtual Function 82756ns 01 [ Use rmmod to unload a driver. The following example shows the lspci output for the dual port Intel NS network card:. If the domain is active, the device is hotplugged but not added to the persistent XML.

Intel Corporation Virtual Function rev 01 In addition, if the domain is running, it will be hotplugged. The theoretical maximum for VFs is per device consequently the maximum for a dual port Ethernet card would be Make sure to replace the example values igbigbvf and igb by values appropriate for your driver.
That means the driver is already loaded.
This option will only affect kinux running domain. This option will only affect the persistent XML, even if the domain is running. If the domain is inactive, the operation will fail. Configure the driver by adding the number of VFs you would like to make available and—if necessary— by blacklisting the non-SR-IOV driver:. This option affects the current state of the domain.
