I setup Solaris Guest using KVM in Ubuntu. I don't have problem pinging host (Ubuntu) to guest (Solaris) and vice versa. Also my Solaris guest can ping other computers in my network but not the other way around. Below is the network configuration I have:

Host ifconfig

and this is for host /etc/network/interfaces

#Loopback
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

#eth0 interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual

#virtual bridge
auto br0
iface br0 inet dhcp
bridge_ports eth0
bridge_stp off
bridge_fd 0
bridge_maxwait 0

I have read these sites link1 and link2 but still after numerous configuration changes including adding br0 on /etc/network/interfaces, I still can't ping my Solaris guest from another computer. Can anyone give me advice on this? Thanks in advance.

Update

After tinkering with various configuration i was able to ping Solaris VM from another computer, Host (Ubuntu) to Guest(Solaris) vice versa. The configuration above is a working configuration. I hope this is helpful for others who encountered the same problem.

Please edit your question and clarify whether the ifconfig output you show is on the guest or the host. Whichever it is, please also add the output of ifconfig on the other (we need both host and guest output). Also tell us exactly how you are attempting to ping, IP? Hostname? –  terdon May 8 at 14:09
