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
vf 26 MAC 02:0d:6d:f4:ae:ac, vlan 27, spoof checking off, link-state auto, trust on
ethtool -i ens5
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
