Iâm a bit confused with your device IDs. The 10fb device is the
PCI id for the physical NIC; the 10d8 device is the SRIOV Virtual Function
device created by the driver. With the latest xen-unstable, I have
successfully used this NIC to create and assign the VF devices to HVM guests.
The ixgbevf driver, which binds to the VF devices, expects device id 0x10ed. I
simply assumed that the driver was not quite up to date and tweaked things to
work. So, if you are just a bit confused, the following might help.
I added the following in my modprobe.d directory to create four
VF devices (ixgbe.conf, attached):
options ixgbe max_vfs=4
So, on my machine, I can see the physical NIC and the 4 VFs
lspci ân | grep 0a:
0a:00.0 0200: 8086:10fb (rev 01)
0a:10.0 0200: 8086:10d8 (rev 01)
0a:10.2 0200: 8086:10d8 (rev 01)
0a:10.4 0200: 8086:10d8 (rev 01)
0a:10.6 0200: 8086:10d8 (rev 01)
I added the ixgbevf driver to both my dom0 and domUs. While it
is a simple tweak to add the device id to the driver, I decided to play with
modprobe instead and added the following to my modprobe.d directory in both
dom0 and domU (ixgbvevf.conf, attached):
install ixgbevf /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install ixgbevf; echo
"0x8086 0x10d8" >/
If you are working with HVM guests, there has to be a patch to
qemu as well. (Attached) You also have to add
â(pci-passthrough-strict-check no)â to your xend-config.sxp. (I donât think you
need the xend-config change for PV guests.)
Then it is simply a matter of adding the VF PCI devices to your
domU configurations and configuring the ixgbevf devices in the guests.
Both the ixgbe and ixgbevf drivers will generate random MAC
addresses for the devices. What I wanted to do was to set the MAC
addresses for the VF devices in dom0 and then my guestsâ networking
configuration was much easier. The physical NIC must be up. It doesnât have to
have an IP address, but if it isnât up the MAC address set in dom0 will be
lost. Iâve attached my dom0 rc.local where I set the MAC addresses and assign
the devices to pciback.
I canât swear that this is the best way to do this, but this did

I am facing a strange issue with my 10G 82599 PCIe device.
The Device Id has to be 0x10FB for SRIOV to function
properly, But all of sudden the Device ID started showing me as 0x10D8,
and because of this the SRIOV feature is not working and I cannot assign the
Virtual Function to my guest.
When I did lspci command it is showing me as Intel
Corporation Unknown device 10d8 (rev 01). Previously it was showing me
Intel Corporation 82599EB Gigabit Networking with 10FB, and I was able to
assign the Virtual Function to my guest.
I googled and found out that the device ID 0x10D8 is a 82599
Can any one please let me know what is happening here and
how to recover back from this?
I am totally blocked for 2 days because of this issue.

I think bandwidth management is a work-in-progress by
