I would like to create virtual machines with mast network interfaces. This is possible to by first creating a guest using
virt-install, then modifying the domain XML.
Is there a way to do this from the command line? Naively starting with:
virt-install -w mcast ...
ERROR internal error: No <source> 'port' attribute specified with socket interface
The XML generated by the above looks like:
<interface type="mcast"> <mac address="52:54:00:21:ec:7c"/> </interface>
...so it is indeed missing the
source element. However, the obvious solution doesn't work:
virt-install -w mcast,source=18.104.22.168:5555
That results in the same XML.
Is there a way to make this work from the
virt-install command line?
