Maybe my google-fu is failing me, but I have spent the past couple hours
looking at how to add a vnet? Device to my KVM host running CentOS 6, and
for the life of me I can't get this going.
>From all my research if I want to add a device I should just do 'brctl addif
br1 vnet14' if I want to add a vnet14 to bridge br1. When I do this, I
# brctl addif br0 vnet14
interface vnet14 does not exist!
If I run a 'brctl show' I get the following:
# brctl show
bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces
br0 8000.00237dd22a4c no eth0
br1 8000.00237dd22a50 no eth1
Needless to say the existing vnet?? Devices are in use on guest VM's
When I create a new VM using virt-install, I usually add the following to my
I messed up building a new VM, and only added the br0 interface to the VM,
but need the br1 interface as well. So my question is, or a pointer to how
I can add that br1 interface to my existing VM, and create the needed vnet14
interface for it to attach to?
If anyone can explain how to do this, or give me a good pointer on where the
info is on how to do this, it would sure be a huge help..
