RFE: network: add API to restart virtual networks and preserve VM connectivity
Last modified: 2017-05-02 02:52:01 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently if you update a virtual network you may well have to destroy & start it again. While this is fine for some types of network, for bridge based networks, this means any active VMs are lost.
It ought to be possible to add a 'virNetworkRestart' command which does the same as virNetworkDestroy + virNetworkCreate, while preserving the veths attached to the bridge.
