Description Fangge Jin 2018-07-12 10:37:43 UTC
Description of problem:
domifaddr should not query non-existing file for interface from host bridge network

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a host bridge:
# virsh iface-bridge --interface eno1 --bridge br0 --no-stp

2.Create a network with forward bridge=br0
# virsh net-dumpxml host-bridge
  <forward mode='bridge'/>
  <bridge name='br0'/>

3.Start a guest with interface from the host-bridge network:
   <interface type='bridge'>
      <mac address='52:54:00:90:c8:27'/>
      <source network='host-bridge' bridge='br0'/>
      <target dev='vnet4'/>
      <model type='rtl8139'/>
      <alias name='net6'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x14' function='0x0'/>

4. Query guest interface address by domifaddr:
# virsh domifaddr $guest

5. Check syslog.

test on libvirt-4.5.0-5.virtcov.el7.x86_64, the bug is fixed.

# virsh domiflist rhel

# virsh domifaddr rhel

# virsh domifaddr rhel bridge_target
 Name       MAC address          Protocol     Address

Check log file and found no error in libvirtd.log
Also test bridge type interface connected to ovs bridge, no error like comment 0.
