[virt-tools-list] Several problems with the management of network interface. (virsh iface-define, virsh iface-start and with virt-manager)

I have already post this bug here https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=709734

but I did not answer.



Description of problem:

1. The execution of the command "virsh iface-start br1" (br1 interface is

obtained with "virsh iface-define") takes 10 minutes.

2. After restarting the machine, the interface does not start automatically

even though I specified the parameter <start mode="onboot"/>. I have to

manually run the command "virsh iface-start br1".


If I create the interface with virt-manager, I have the same problems and the

process takes about 20 minutes.



Version-Release number of selected component: 
 I have found the 0.8.8 version of libvirt and virsh in this repository: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Virtualization_Preview_Repository.
 I use this version because the 0.8.3 has a third bug.

Fedora 14

Linux Kernel

libvirt 0.8.8

virsh 0.8.8

virt-manager 0.8.7

bridge-utils 1.2



Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create the file bridgeInterfaceConfig.xml (change interface, ip and mac to

correspond to your configuration)

  <interface type='bridge' name='br1'>

    <start mode="onboot"/>

    <protocol family='ipv4'>

      <ip address='' prefix='24'/>



      <interface type='ethernet' name='eth2'>

        <mac address='00:1b:21:43:36:b0'/>




2. launch "virsh iface-define bridgeInterfaceConfig.xml"

3. launch "iface-start br1". this step take 10 minutes.

4. restart the computer and see that the br1 interface no longer exists.

5. you can do the same with virt-manager.
