  • N0de02:17, 30 March 2012 (UTC) : Hi all. I followed the instructions in this page, but since I have only one interface, which is a wifi interface and find nothing on the internet on how to effectively create a openvswitch switch which uses this interface as the public uplink and downlink, I have not gone farther than having a ubuntu precise upgraded box with xcp installed, but not functional.
How do I create a xenbr0 and bind my wifi interface so it stays functional? After creating a bridge and adding this interface to it, my wifi card became unusable, so I had to delete the bridge for it to become available again.
Thanks for any help, precisions or link on the topic.

  • N0de16:58, 4 April 2012 (UTC) : Nope. Not linked. The interface cannot be bridged with brctl at all. But when its put in a openvswitch switch, there is no way for network-manager or wicd to control it. It become "unmanageable". No traffic at all on the interface with tcpdump, but still in ifconfig. Any troubleshoothin advised?
  • TODO (Mcclurmc):
    • Have Quantal users use the unstable PPA
    • Write script for pif-reconfigure-ip that works over ssh (will kill ssh session, but should be able to log back in)
      • probably need to: ifconfig eth0 down ; xe pif-reconfigure-ip uuid=<blah> mode=dhcp
    • Create local storage
      • First need to reserve a partition for local storage
