I have several lxc containers that need network access. At the moment I am manually allocating them IP addresses in the relevant config file as so:
lxc.network.type = veth lxc.network.flags = up lxc.network.name = eth0 lxc.network.link = br0 lxc.network.ipv4 = 192.168.1.6/24 lxc.network.ipv4.gateway = 192.168.1.1
This works but does not scale and can conflict with my routers DHCP allocation. I try to use my router dhcp by leaving out the lxc.network.ipv4 lines (as described online elsewhere), and the container starts but dhcpcd reports no carrier. lxc-ls --fancy also does not show my container has an IP address. The bride is up and lxc.network.link set in the config file.
How can I use DHCP with my containers? Is it possible to use my routers DHCP, or do I need to run a server on my host? Some of my containers do need to be accessible from the outside, where as some only need to communicate to other containers/host.
I'm running arch linux, most of the help online seems ubuntu specific.
