[libvirt-users] OpenVswitch with KVM virtual machines



Hey,

I have KVM installed on my Fedora 17 box. I added the network interfaces of the virtual machines to the openvswitch bridge as follows:


 ____                  ____

/ VM1\______br0_______/ em1\

\____/       |        \____/

     |

    _|_

/VM2\

\____/


virbr0 is the virtual network switch

VM1 and VM2 are on the same subnet having tap interfaces vnet0 and vnet1 respectively.

em1 is the default network interface.


$sudo ovs-vsctl add-br br0

$sudo ovs-vsctl add-port br0 em1

$sudo ifconfig br0 <ip address of em1>

$sudo ip route del default dev em1

$sudo ip route add default dev br0
(Using the above commands, I was able to connect to the internet)

$sudo brctl delif virbr0 vnet0
$sudo ovs-vsctl add-port br0 vnet0
$sudo brctl delif virbr0 vnet1
$sudo ovs-vsctl add-port br0 vnet1

$brctl show
bridge name    bridge id        STP enabled    interfaces
virbr0        8000.52540094e45e    yes        virbr0-nic
                            vnet0
                            vnet2

$sudo ovs-vsctl show

        inet 10.66.97.253  netmask 255.0.0.0  broadcast 10.255.255.255
        inet6 fe80::226:55ff:fe3e:971c  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>

        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

By default, the OVS should act as a MAC-layer learning switch. However, the VMs which are in the same subnet can ping each other but the VMs can't ping the host machine (10.66.97.253) & viceversa.
Can you tell me where am I wrong in my approach?

Thanks and regards,
Neha.
