Proxmox 4.4 Extreme Network Setup (Bring Network adapters in place)

For our solution we need.

  • eth0 (onboard here)
  • wlan (pcie card)
  • dummy0.

First let’s do the dummy interface(s):

root@cloud:~# echo dummy >> /etc/modules

root@cloud:~# echo options dummy numdummies=1 >> /etc/modprobe.d/dummy.conf

root@cloud:~# modprobe dummy

You can count the number of dummy interfaces by your self. Got in mind that the interface get automatical a hardware address, that can be in conflict with the virtual machine(s).

We reconfigure the interface in

root@cloud:~# nano /etc/network/interfaces

The configuration files has to look something like:

# network interface settings; autogenerated
# Please do NOT modify this file directly, unless you know what
# you’re doing.
# If you want to manage part of the network configuration manually,
# please utilize the ‘source’ or ‘source-directory’ directives to do
# so.
# PVE will preserve these directives, but will NOT its network
# configuration from sourced files, so do not attempt to move any of
# the PVE managed interfaces into external files!

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug eth0
allow-hotplug dummy0

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
bridge_ports eth0
bridge_stp off
bridge_fd 0

auto vmbr1
iface vmbr1 inet static
bridge_ports dummy0
bridge_stp off
bridge_fd 0

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static

If you do it up right here, proxmox will use it without problems;- there is no need for a graphical interface this time.

Time for reboot
