I am using proxmox 4.1.

If I add IP-addresses to my CentOS-7-LXC I can only do that if this IP is from the same subnet. If I'm using another subnet with another gateway the container is not pingable anymore - I have to remove the IP from the other subnet and reboot the container after that.

The interfaces-configuration of the host node is:

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback

auto vmbr0

iface vmbr0 inet static
address 84.xxx.xxx.x4


gateway 84.xxx.xxx.x1

bridge_ports eth0

bridge_stp off

bridge_fd 0

A more detailed example:

84.xxx.xx1.x4 with gateway 84.xxx.xx1.x1 -> everything is fine

if I add

84.xxx.xx1.x6 with gateway 84.xxx.xx1.x1 -> everything is fine

if I add

84.xxx.xx2.x4 with gateway 84.xxx.xx2.x1 -> all IPs of the container are not responding to incoming PING. Outgoing PING does not work, too.

The problem is not CentOS-related. A debian-lxc-template has the same problems.
