I saw two other similar posts on this topic but my situation is slightly different. Basically, I need to set up bridged networking that uses static ip (not dhcp) on an Ubuntu 12.04 host running KVM. I'm pretty new to this area of things and have seen a couple tutorials; but, what I've seen so far is pretty old stuff.
I did create an /etc/network/interfaces file for that purpose which can be seen here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1020623/
Problem is, it breaks name resolution on the host when I configure that setup on the system. Someone pointed out a step in a tutorial I was using that I had completely missed:
[Quote]3. After removing NetworkManager, edit /etc/resolv.conf and add in your nameserver.
When I do a "less /etc/resolv.conf" the contents of the file indicate that it is not to be edited by hand. That any changes made to the file will be overwritten later.
Can someone outline the way to set up bridged networking with static ip with 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04 server?
