Ok, my situation is as follows. I have:
-host (Ubuntu server 14.04) on which I want to have multiple VMs (KVM). This host has 2 NICs (eth0, eth1)
-home router (dhcp, network 192.168.1.0)
-PC with virt-manager
I am stuck with network settings. What I want to have is, that each VM gets its own IP from router/DHCP and is also visible in home network (as normal physical computer). Lets say I "assign" eth0 for host and eth1 should be used by VMs.
Can someone who has experience please help me accomplish this, I am browsing web for 2 days and my head will explode of all this expressions and options...ip alias, bridge, virtual network switch, mac-vlan, macvtap, virtio, e1000. On ESXi you have vSwitch and thats it...
Update I found a solution. Expression "bridge" for what it does is/was a little misleading for me. I would call it switch, because it can join multiple networks together not just two (that does bridge). So I created a bridge (br0) with virt-manager (but can also be done with brctl command) and added eth0 to it. Qemu-kvm than automaticaly adds vnet adapters for each VM if its connected to bridge.
