Re: [libvirt] Proposal: no dnsmasq (no dhcp and no dns) and no radvd option

I understand that you can define multiple IPv4 and multiple IPv6 gateway addresses on a network interface but only one IPv4 DHCP and one IPv6 DHCP.

Yes, it could be done but I am not certain why you would do that (and I am also sure that someone has a very valid reason for doing that).
Oops!  There may be a problem here with radvd!.

I have difficulty in understanding why one would define multiple IPv6 (or even IPv4) subnetworks on a single interface. Well, I guess the radvd authors did also: the AdvManagedFlag on/off applies to the entire interface and no a specific network.

I am verifying this but there is a chance that dsnmasq could support both for different subnetworks.

I guess that dnsmasq could be used to support one and radvd used to support the other but ???

I believe this may need more discussion from others. I would like to have someone other than the two of us chime in on this.
