Re: [libvirt] networking static ip address

Thanks for the input.

Then, I suppose there's no way to assign the IP on boot without DHCP, there is?

Can it be done without using <network> type elements?

Yes. Create a network definition, specify a host element to the dhcp
definition, attach the machine to the created bridge and it should work.

 <forward dev='eth0' mode='nat'/>
 <bridge name='intbr0' stp='on' forwardDelay='0' />
 <ip address='' netmask=''>
     <range start='' end='' />
     <host mac='AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF' ip=''/>

Snippet for the domain definition:

<interface type='bridge'>
 <mac address='AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF'/>
 <source bridge='intbr0'/>
 <target dev='vnet0'/>

Is dnsmasq installed and running? Does the guest system use dhcp?
