Re: [libvirt] macvtap nt working on kvm



Hi,
Actually macvatap doesn't work with bridge. So once the physical device
is attached to a bridge, a macvtap attached to that device no longer
works.
In my case there is no bridge on the interface. but still guest os is
not able to get ip address.

Is there no support for macvtap on red hat 6.1 x_86 platforms?

Interesting. So you're saying that once the physical device is attached 
to a bridge, a macvtap attached to that device no longer works? That's 
useful to know :-)
