Good evening friends,
I have been testing Fedora 30 Server edition in a virtual machine and now I would like to place the NIC in bridged mode so the VM appears on the same subnet as the rest of my physical devices.
So I go to my Virtual Networks in virt-manager and click the plus to add a new virtual network. I give it a name and the first odd thing I notice on step 2 is that the IP address is highlighted in red. No problem, I drop a 0 from the third octet and the highlight turns green.
On step 4 I select ‘Forwarding to physical network’, set the destination to ‘Any physical device’ and the mode to ‘Routed’. Upon clicking finish, I get a message with the following error:
Error creating virtual network: The name is not activatable Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 75, in cb_wrapper callback(asyncjob, *args, **kwargs) File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/createnet.py", line 811, in _async_net_create net.install() File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtinst/network.py", line 244, in install net.create() File "/usr/lib64/python3.7/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 3007, in create if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virNetworkCreate() failed', net=self) libvirt.libvirtError: The name is not activatable
I’ve done this a few times before and not experienced this error. Does anyone have experience with this sort of thing who can point me in the right direction?
