I think you're running into the filter limit for VFs.

Hi Donald,

Do you also notice this problem?
We're facing an issue that we can use only 64 VLANs per VF.
We're using Intel's 82599EB chip with ixgbe and ixgbevf driver.


Is it subject to the specification restrictions only 64 VLAN can use per VF?
We'd like to use about 2000 VLAN per VF.

Does it come from hardware?
