I was planning on adding multiple physical functions using the built in SR-IOV features offered by libvirt to a create a bigger pool of virtual functions using the
<forward mode='hostdev' managed='yes'> heading
(I want to be able to use more virtual machines then there are virtual functions available on an ethernet port).
As soon as I try to define multiple physical functions in a pool, I get this error:
error: Failed to define network from biggernetwork.xml
error: XML error: Only one <pf> element is allowed in <forward> of network bigger network
when using this command:
sudo virsh net-define biggernetwork.xml
on the following XML document:
<forward mode='hostdev' managed='yes'>
It seems that you are not able to add multiple physical functions to this network to create a pool of more virtual functions.
Is there anyway that you can do this using that I am missing? I seem to be looking at the documentation and there seems to be nothing related to this. I think this would be extremely useful and would make automate adding virtual functions to virtual machines much easier to manage.
Thanks in advance,
