Re: [libvirt-users] Live migrate + change interface name



 
Hmm indeed, I will have to look at using this network. Currently I am 
using virsh, and scripting the adding and removing of an interface at 
runtime with detach-interface/attach-interface.

What management tool are you using that the syntax is 
"source_device=eth2"?

Are you maybe just paraphrasing your config, and what you actually have 
is something like this?:

    <interface type='direct'>
      <source dev='eth2'/>
      ...
    </interface>

?

If so, the way to make this easily migratable is to create a network on 
both hosts that points to the desired physical device, e.g. on host 1:


     <network>
       <name>direct-net</name>
       <forward mode='bridge'>
         <interface dev='eth2'/>
       </forward>
     </network>

and on host2:

      (same thing, but use 'eth1')

After net-define-ing the networks, you'll need to net-autostart and 
net-start them. Then in your guest's interface config, you would use 
this:

      <interface type='network>
        <source network='direct-net'/>
        ...

You will then be able to migrate from one host to the other without 
needing to modify your XML during the migration.
