VM-100 maximum number of interfaces on KVM

L1 Bithead

For some reason, after activating the license on VM-100, I still only see 8 interfaces even though I have interfaces configured in the VM settings.

I thought KVM supports up to 25 interfaces.

This is running on KVM on Ubuntu LTS 20.04

25 total interfaces with 24 actually usable for the dataplane, the first interface assigned is the management interface. Judging by what you're reporting I would make sure that you have the interfaces set to e1000 or virtio drivers and not the default rtl8139 driver.

I have 13 vNICs all configured as virtio.  Brand new VM setup licensed.  Same issue.
