    Switching between VMs using SRIOV

    Ravikb

      All,

        I have a basic question. We have a 10G NIX card based on X540-AT2. It had two 10G Physical ports. I have created two VFs on each of the PF and assigned them to different VMs. I am able to send traffic between VMs which have PFs from the same PF. However I am unable to send traffic from VM which is connected using VF on say PF0 to other VM which used VF on PF1. Is this the expected behaviour? If I need to send traffic to a VF on one PF to VF on other PF, do I have to go out to a switch and come back?

       

      regards,

      Ravi
