Ethernet Device-Specific and Network-Specific Properties

Use the ldm create-vf command to set device-specific and network-specific properties of a virtual function. The unicast-slots property is device-specific. The mac-addr, alt-mac-addrs, mtu, pvid, and vid properties are network-specific.

Note that the mac-addr, alt-mac-addrs, and mtu network-specific properties can be changed only when the virtual function is assigned to the primary domain while in a delayed reconfiguration.

    Attempts to change these properties fail when the virtual function is assigned as follows:

  • When the virtual function is assigned to an active I/O domain: A property change request is rejected because the change must be made when the owning domain is in the inactive or bound state.

  • When the virtual function is assigned to a non-primary domain and a delayed reconfiguration is already in effect: A property change request fails with an error message.

The pvid and vid network-specific properties can be changed without restriction.
