I have an Ubuntu server with and a VM using KVM. The plan is that the server and the VM have a static IP address. I tried to change /etc/network/interfaces combining some of the examples available to this
# The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.0.50 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.0.1 auto br0 iface br0 inet static address 192.168.0.51 network 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.0.1 bridge_ports eth0 bridge_fd 9 bridge_hello 2 bridge_maxage 12 bridge_stp off
If I restart the networking eth0 has no IP address but the br0 has one. This is part of the solution but not what I need as I am not able to reach the host anymore. The VM is already configured to use br0 and this part is "sort of working"...
Any help is really appreciated.
