You can move VF VNICs or VF VLANs from one datalink to another datalink. Note the following requirements:
The target datalink must support SR-IOV and the iov property must be set to on. For more information about how to check the status of the iov property for a datalink, see Enabling the SR-IOV Mode of Datalinks.
A VF must be available on the target datalink. For more information about how to check the number of VFs available on a datalink, see Displaying VF Information.
If these requirements are not met, then the VF VNIC is migrated to the target datalink as a regular VNIC without a VF.
If you migrate a VF VNIC, that was created by specifying iov=inherit, the migration succeeds even if the target datalink does not support the iov property or the iov property is disabled. If you try to migrate a VF VNIC, that was created with iov=on, the migration succeeds only if the SR-IOV mode is enabled on the target datalink.
For more information about how to migrate a VNIC, see Migrating VNICs.
