As we continue to automate (current) version of virt-manager, what would
be the best method to establish volumes and network connectivity?


Obviously we can automate the creation of a physical NIC bridge, which
is our desired method for VM connectivity outside of the KVM host, and
we can reference said bridge interface as we build VMs.  However, are
there any side-effects to this method we should know about?


Same basic question for mount points to shared storage between KVM
hosts.  We plan to use NAS/NFS initially, some day we might use SAN
infrastructure.  Creating the mount points is straight forward from an
automation perspective, but to get virt-manager to see these volumes,
any issues we  should be aware of?  Take into consideration?


Anyone that has done this before?  Figure we can benefit from lessons
learned?  As always thanks for the assistance.
