Download the source for the ixgbevf module on your instance from Sourceforge at https: Enhanced networking with the Intel VF interface is enabled if the ixgbevf module is installed on your instance and the sriovNetSupport attribute is set.

All hardware requirements listed apply to use with Linux.

All other operations are supported under Windows. Sign In to the Console. Use the following command to verify that the module is being used on a particular interface, substituting linyx interface name that you wish to check. If another instance boots with this file, the operating system will be unable to find the device and eth0 might fail, causing boot issues.

This file contains the MAC address for the Ethernet adapter of the original instance. Related topics Network Connectivity: Connect to your instance again and verify that the ixgbevf module is installed and at the minimum recommended version using the modinfo ixgbevf command from Testing Whether Enhanced Networking is Enabled.


Systems that use systemd or udev versions or greater can rename Ethernet devices and they do not guarantee that a single network interface will be named eth0. This file is regenerated at the next boot cycle, and any instances launched from the AMI create their own version of the file.
