Description Germano Veit Michel 2017-10-27 05:25:21 UTC
Description of problem:

In case the parent PCI device of a SR-IOV NIC is shared with another device, like a scsi_host, the engine fails to fill the host_nic_vfs_config table. This prevents the user from using the NIC for SR-IOV as he is unable to configure the number of VFs from the Administration Portal.

For example, these entries from HostdevListByCaps triggers the problem:

       device_name      | parent_device_name | capability | total_vfs | net_iface_name
 pci_0000_22_00_0       | pci_0000_00_03_0   | pci        |         7 |
 scsi_host20            | pci_0000_22_00_0   | scsi_host  |           |
 net_enp22s0f0          | pci_0000_22_00_0   | net        |           | enp22s0f0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
100%, use the attached hooks.

IMPORTANT: to reproduce the problem, the host needs to be installed with the hook already in place. If the host_nic_vfs_config table is already populated with the unmodified fakesriov hook, the problem does not reproduce. So please remove and re-install the host to reproduce (and QA).

Actual results:
No SR-IOV icon on the NIC.

Expected results:
SR-IOV icon on the NIC.

10_fakesriov      # place this hook to reproduce the problem
20_filter_sriov   # hook to correct the problem on vdsm side

Comment 8 Michael Burman 2018-01-01 14:09:59 UTC
Tested and verified on and vdsm-
Using Germano's vdsm fakesriov hooks only.

We still didn't get the 'offending' HW card and still didn't get reply from customer on the hot-fix.
