I was able to create virtual guests with macvtap using virt-manager. It works great.

I would like to create the same using virt-install. But I am not able to google any information regarding --network parameters. I tried various combinations like:

virt-install ... --network bridge:macvtap ...
virt-install ... --network bridge:macvtapX ...
virt-install ... --network nic=macvtap ...

I am not able to get it working. What is the "magic" parameter that starts up a guest with macvtap for me?

Looks like noone knows the answer here. Consider asking in the Fedora virtualization list
