The vMX package consists of the following components: (in Junos OS Release 15.1F4 and earlier releases)
build config — vmx.conf — vmx-junosdev.conf docs drivers — ixgbe-3.19.1 env images — jinstall64-vmx-15.1F4.15-domestic.img — jinstall64-vmx-15.1F4.15-domestic-signed.img — vmxhdd.img — vFPC_20151203.img scripts — common — junosdev-bind — kvm — templates vmx.sh
Modified IXGBE drivers are included in the package. Multicast promiscuous mode for Virtual Functions is needed to receive control traffic that comes with broadcast MAC addresses. The reference driver does not come with this mode set, so the IXGBE drivers in this package contain certain modifications to overcome this limitation.
