I am using virtual machines and would like them to respond to .local names. Ubuntu desktop does it naturally but I cannot find where to configure it on a 18.04 server.

I installed the avahi-deamon wich should handle it but I can see in the logs :

syslog:Sep  4 16:03:24 localhost avahi-daemon[797]: Files changed, reloading.
syslog:Sep  4 16:03:24 localhost avahi-daemon[797]: No service file found in /etc/avahi/services.

Checking on my desktop, I get far more data after the "No service file" log, and my desktop is properly recognized from the virtual machine.

Is there some conflict or missing confirguration with netplan ?
