Create the SCVMM Tenant

About this task

Add the SCVMM server to the EFA Hyper-V Service instance. Do the following:


  1. Use the efa tenant create command to create your tenant entry. When creating the tenant, ensure that you provision an adequate number of VLANs that are available for use.
  2. After you create the new tenant, verify that the devices you added are added to the correct fabric. Use the efa inventory device list command to do so.


This command will create a tenant entry that is used when registering a SCVMM server with EFA.


This command creates a tenant entry with the name scvmm-

$ efa tenant create --name scvmm- --vlan-range 2-4096 --port[0/10],[0/10] 

Use this command to verify if the devices that you have added to the fabric are associated with the correct fabric.
