I am having real trouble creating a network bridge on my Debian system so I can run Qemu VM's under virsh.
I have the NIC connected via ethernet, and the IP reserved via the MAC address on the router to 192.168.1.2.
I am trying to create a bridge so the VM's can use that under DHCP (which I will then reserve on the router), unless making the IPs static is better?
My default network/interfaces file includes;
auto lo iface lo inet loopback
To create my bridge, I tried to enter the following from the official Debian website:
# The loopback network interface auto lo br0 iface lo inet loopback # Set up interfaces manually, avoiding conflicts with, e.g., network manager iface eth0 inet manual # Bridge setup iface br0 inet dhcp bridge_ports eth0
Unfortunately this kills the network.
I have done a ton load of Googling on this one, spent hours trying to get it to work. Even passthru kills the host network but lets the guest connect.
Any help would be great before I give up with Qemu and use Virtualbox
