    MAC learning in VF ports

    pinchuvs

      I am using X710 in my PC for a custom application. I am using SR-IOV feature. I have assigned MAC address to each VF. Is there a way i can enable MAC learning in VF ports? My application would be using generated mac address for communicating with the peer. Here i am looking for L2 switch like learning functionality.

       

      If MAC learning per VF is not possible,is there a way i can add MAC address to VF ports (same static L2 table)? Here i am looking for static L2 entry(MAC address to the VF port).

       

      I am using Ubuntu16 as my OS.

       

      Please provide your suggestions.
