Re: [libvirt-users] Need help with [virt net-create]



Thanks Daniel. 

Why was I trying to do something like this ? 
Two reasons 

1. I was referring to ( Figure 18.4. Virtual network switch running dnsmasq)
   https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html-single/Virtualization_Administration_Guide/index.html#sect-network-protocols

   that appears to be two virtual nics sharing the same IP range .. !!! 

2. was playing around "Network teaming" in a VM. But this doesnt seem to work. Please dont beat me around the use cases for this :) 

Do we have support for "Network teaming inside a  VM" ?  
This seems to be well documented for VMware and Hyper-V, could not find related document on this for libvirt. 


Thanks.
G

Nope, that's unsupported. We need to key various things off the
IP address + mask used for the NIC, so you can't have multiple
nets with the same address + mask.

Can you instead explain why you're trying to setup multiple
networks with the same IP addr/mask in the first place.
