This section discusses the actions to be followed post every reboot.


  1. Post reboot all VMs will automatically be in the STOP state. All the VM names can be checked using virsh list output. Bring up all the VMs using the virsh start <VM-name>command.
  2. If the VF config was not made persistent as described above, repeat the steps mentioned under Virtual Functions from PF.

    VFs should be configured with unique MAC addresses through PF using the following command:

    ip link set <PF_interface_name> vf <VF_index> mac <unique_mac_addr>
