reg ixgbe PF configuration using OVM for SPARC

916692 Newbie

I had a question regarding ixgbe (Intel 82599) PF configuration using LDoms manager: Is it possible to assign a PF to a guest domain on a UltraSPARC T4 based system that has more than one pcie bus/root complex ? That is, the pcie bus that has ixgbe device connected to it is assigned to a guest domain. The goal is to manage the ixgbe PF from the guest domain instead of the primary domain, create VFs from this PF device and assign the VFs of this device to other guest domains. Can the OVM Manager detect the PF and VFs of the ixgbe device that is present in another domain ?

Thanks.

Regards,
Giridhar.
