I have RHEL 7.4 with Intel i40e drivers with SRIOV enabled Intel XL710  NIC on host and Centos 7.5 as guest with i40evf driver.

 

When i try to change MAC address of VF from the VM i get Operation not Permitted Error.

 

ip l set dev ens5 address 00:00:5E:00:01:0E

RTNETLINK answers: Operation not permitted

 

From PF:

vf 26 MAC 02:0d:6d:f4:ae:ac, vlan 27, spoof checking off, link-state auto, trust on

 

Driver Version

VM

ethtool -i ens5

driver: i40evf

version: 3.0.1-k

 

Host

driver: i40e

version: 1.6.27-k

firmware-version: 6.00 0x80003546 18.3.6

 

My VM is running a multicast application and it needs to change its MAC to VRRP MAC.Is there a way to allow VM to change its MAC
