I have a private network declared now, thank you Mark.

And here is how I am trying to attach an interface:
# cat PRIVBR0.xml
 <network>
   <name>PRIVBR0</name>
   <bridge name='privbr0'/>
   <ip address='172.19.0.1' netmask='255.255.0.0'>
   </ip>
 </network>

# virsh net-list --all
Name                 State      Autostart
-----------------------------------------
PRIVBR0              active     yes
default              active     no

# virsh attach-interface CC  bridge privbr0
error: this function is not supported by the hypervisor: device type
'interface' cannot be attached

# grep emulator  CC.xml
   <emulator>/usr/bin/qemu-kvm</emulator>


I tried the 'attach-interface' both while the domain is running and
while shutdown.  Neither works.

Can anyone see something wrong in what I'm doing here or the reason
that 'attach-interface' is failing?

I have also tried this as 'attach-device' with the same result:

# cat INTERFACE_PRIVBR0.xml
    <interface type='bridge'>
      <mac address='00:0c:01:41:50:01'/>
      <source bridge='privbr0'/>
    </interface>

# virsh attach-device CC INTERFACE_PRIVBR0.xml
error: Failed to attach device from INTERFACE_PRIVBR0.xml
error: this function is not supported by the hypervisor: device type
'interface' cannot be attached

I opened the following bug on this issue:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=537688



Hot adding nics to qemu was added in libvirt 0.7


So that means F12 and later would have NIC hotadd. Ok, so does anyone know if libvirt 0.7.3 will be available as an upgrade in F12? Ultimately that is what we're going to need.
