Hello SR-IOV experts,

I have deployed one controller and one compute node in two separate virtual machines using Training-Lab tutorial (https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Documentation/training-labs#Building_the_cluster (https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Docum...)). I want to enable SR-IOV in the compute node. Is this possible to enable SR-IOV inside a VM? If this is possible then can anybody can share helpful materials with me?

Information of available Ethernet controllers in the compute node is given bellow.

lspci | grep Ethernet
00:03.0 Ethernet controller: Red Hat, Inc. Virtio network device
00:08.0 Ethernet controller: Red Hat, Inc. Virtio network device
00:09.0 Ethernet controller: Red Hat, Inc. Virtio network device

Actually, configuring SDN controller with OSM is my ultimate goal. I am using this tutorial (https://osm.etsi.org/wikipub/index.php/EPA_and_SDN_assist (https://osm.etsi.org/wikipub/index.ph...)) for configuring SDN controller with OSM and SR-IOV is mandatory requirement.

OS of host machine = Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS
OS of virtual machines = Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS

I am using Oracle VirtualBox version 5 to create VMs.

Thanks.
