    Problems with connecting a network card in VM sr-iov mode

    Alexandr_Bogdanov Lurker

      Good day!

      I have a server with a PCI network optical card installed. One cable connects the server to the storage system, another cable to the switch.

      There was one virtual machine on the server with this connection, I added another virtual machine to which I also planned to give the network connection via the optical channel to the switch (two VMs use the same network optical connection).

      The network card is configured in sr -iov mode.

      When I tried to configure the network of the second VM, I received a message that it was impossible to start VM with this type of license. I use the free version of the hypervisor.

      Question: Is it possible in sr - iov mode with a free license to use a PCI network card for only one VM?
