In Ubuntu 18.04 the default network configuration is done with netplan. I have a setup which creates a bridge interface at startup, see below.

It all works great, except that during startup it runs into a timeout of about 2 minutes. After the timeout it finishes the startup, and the system runs without problems.

For 2 minutes it prints this message on the console (also present in /var/log/boot.log)

A start job is running for Wait for Network to be Configured

I have several systems with Ubuntu 18.04 and netplan, but only the ones with a this bridge interface have this problem.

Does anyone else see this too?

This is my netplan config

  version: 2
  renderer: networkd

BTW. I'm using this bridge for LXD. At startup there are no LXD containers yet that use this bridge.
