ixgbe, ixgbevf (82599es ethernet controller)
The docker container had to have a trunk port which is mapped to a VF.
docker guest running in privileged mode.
when the container emits the q-in-q packets, the kernel drops as the packets are spoofed.
in the recv direction how can i classify based on the vlan (with no vlan interface in the container)?
Thanks for the help
You are welcome. Just to clarify what is the entire setup? Are you trying to configure the VF on the 82599ES in a VM then forward the packets to another PC (with the same VLAN) in the same container?
Please provide more information for better investigation.
Thank you for the information provided. Just to double check to clarify my understanding about your setup:
1) Is the device you mentioned refer to another virtual machines? Which means you are trying to send vlan tagged packets from one VMs to another VM within the same container through a trunk port?
2) You mentioned about trunk port mapped to VF. Where is this trunk port located or configured?
