I wish to to assign the IP from my eth1:2 to a VM; I also have no use of this IP for the host, it would be desirable to be exclusive to the VM.
I've ended up with a setup just like this (eth1:1, eth1:2, etc):
Xen, bridge and multiple IPs on CentOS
And I want to route each IP to a bridge: https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Network_Model#Routed_Configuration
I removed my eth1:2 and copied the settings to vmbr1, but it when I attempt to install a guest using that bridge the network is unreachable from the guest.
What should be changed here:
auto vmbr1 iface vmbr1 inet static address ***from eth1:2*** netmask ***from eth1:2*** bridge_ports eth1 bridge_stp off bridge_fd 0
If someone could also point me to resources explaining scenarios and why, that would be helpful.
