SR-IOV and port trunking

Hey all,

In my setup I have 2 PFs that on each of them I defined a single VF (p1p1 with VF 0 and p1p2 with VF 0).

I have a VM which I attached with these two VFs, and on my VM I defined these two ports as trunk group.

Problem is that when arp request is sent from my VM via one of the VF and comes back via the other VF it is dropped because MAC address does not match.

My question is - does SR-IOV support port trunking? How should it be configured?

Thanks,

Shaham

Hi Shahamf,

Thank you for the info. Would you help clarify which OS is the host OS and the guest OS? What are the kernel versions?

For the Intel 82599 10 Gigabit NIC, is it an onboard NIC or X520 series network adapter? Please refer to this site for the model. http://ark.intel.com/compare/39776,41164,68672 ARK | Compare Intel® Products
