I managed to install and configure openQRM 5.0 on ubuntu 12.04 on a single node following the 'old' documentation
I use a notebook with a single nic.
Deploying VMs via VCD works just fine.
In this 'usual' single node demo setup the QRM server is using a single bridged network (br0) on top of a single physical network.
Now I like to change the configuration such that the QRM server is acting as a router and not just as a brigde.
I would like to put all VMs into a subnet that is separated from the rest of the real network by the QRM server acting as a router.
On a bare KVM server system I would do it like this using libvirt and the forward mode 'route'.
The libvirt provides modes bridge, nat , route amd more.
What follows is part of the network definition file for a virtual network on a KVM host.
<forward dev='eth0' mode='route'/>
<bridge name='virbr%d' stp='on' delay='5' />
<ip address='10.10.10.1' netmask='255.255.255.0'>
Where/How can I alter the QRM configuration such that the QRM-Server is acting a a router (mode route)?
I am used to the libvirt style of configuration but I am lost by the way QRM uses KVM.
On a server with two physical NICs I would just make QRM use a bridge on one NIC and connect to my real network via the second NIC. Then, a routing configuration would be straight forward.
How do I do it with just one pysical nic?
Many thanx and best regards,
you can configure the bridges used for the VM network cards with teh
/usr/share/openqrm/bin/openqrm boot-service view -n kvm -a default
Plugins -> Virtualization -> KVM -> Help -> Config
many thanks, have a nice day and enjoy openQRM 5.0,
