    802.1ad on ixgbe vfs



      I am trying to configure 802.1ad on ixgbe vfs with a goal of moving resultant q-in-q interface into a container i.e. have the vf in default namespace and have all the vf's vlan interfaces being moved to different namespaces. Theoretically in this configuration, packets would be double-tagged coming into pf, be directed to correct vf (and outer tag stripped) and then delivered to linux with single-tag.


      I tried this:


      # echo 32 > /sys/class/net/eth1/device/sriov_numvfs

      # ip link set dev eth1 up

      # ip link set dev eth1 vf 1 vlan 2 proto 802.1ad

      Is there a way I can do this ?
