15.2.2. Using a Private libvirt Network

Procedure 15.3. Using a private libvirt network

  1. Boot a guest virtual machine using libvirt with PXE booting enabled. You can use the virt-install command to create/install a new virtual machine using PXE:
    virt-install --pxe --network network=default --prompt
Alternatively, ensure that the guest network is configured to use your bridged network, and that the XML guest configuration file has a <boot dev='network'/> element inside the <os> element, as shown in the following example:
<os>
   <type arch='x86_64' machine='rhel6.2.0'>hvm</type>
   <boot dev='network'/>
   <boot dev='hd'/>
</os>
Also ensure that the guest virtual machine is connected to the private network:
<interface type='network'>
   <mac address='52:54:00:66:79:14'/>
   <source network='default'/>
   <target dev='vnet0'/>
   <alias name='net0'/>
   <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x03' function='0x0'/>
</interface>
