Mellanox plugin supports two types of VF provisioning:
- pci passthrough (hostdev) - SR-IOV
- macvtap (mlnx_direct) - Para Virtualization
According to the log, you want to use the first flavor (hostdev).
Please follow the following instructions in:
After the installation perform the following changes for setting the ‘probe_vf’ option in mlx4_core.
In case you want all VFs to be used in pci passthrough mode, set the probe_vf = 0.
All the best,
Thanks for the doc link and probe_vf instruction. I will try those steps.
