I'll be on a server with 2 ethernet interfaces, Ubuntu desktop 18.04, virtualization apps including virt-manager and virtualbox
I want to use DHCP from my home router to assign IPs on the bridge, I will have both ethernets plugged into the same router/subnet.
Eventually I want to configure it as static but for now I need to understand how to do it with DHCP.
I think there are different ways to do this. It seems 18.04 has a thing called netplan which changes the way network interfaces are setup.. I'm not real clear on the specifics... But it looks like netplan lets you use network-manager or systemd-networkd to run all your interfaces, depending on your preference.
I think a third option is to configure the bridge using bridge-utils, seems promising.
This page is what lead me to this understanding: https://www.hiroom2.com/2018/05/08/ubuntu-1804-bridge-en/ (VERY interesting site overall, check that guy's stuff out sometime)
So here's my question: How should I setup the bridge for my VMs/containers? What method do I use and why?
I want to plug both of the cables in, and see all my VMs on the net. I just want to know a method that works well.
