interfaces dataplane <interface-name> hardware dev-port <port-number>

Binds a data plane interface to a port on a PCI NIC that has multiple ports.

set interfaces dataplane interface-name hardware dev-port port-number
delete interfaces dataplane interface-name hardware dev-port port-number
show interfaces dataplane interface-name hardware dev-port
interface-name
The name of a data plane interface. For more information about formats for the names of supported data plane interfaces, refer to Data Plane Interface.
port-number
The number of a port. The number ranges from 0 through 4294967295.

Configuration mode

dataplane interface-name {
        hardware {
                dev-port port-number
        }
}

This command is useful when a NIC has multiple ports but occupies a single PCI slot. To uniquely identify a port on the NIC, you must also use the interfaces dataplane interface-name hardware pci-address pci-address or interfaces dataplane interface-name hardware pci-slot pci-slot command. For example, you can instruct the vRouter to bind dp0s5 to port 1 of the NIC whose address is 00:19.0 or bind dp0s3 to port 2 of the NIC in slot 3.

Use the set form of this command to bind a data plane interface to a port on a PCI NIC.

Use the delete form of this command to unbind a data plane interface from a port on a PCI NIC.

Use the show form of this command to display the port hardware-binding information for a data plane interface.
