Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 509192
cannot emulate a disconnected network device
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:19:15 EDT
Description of problem:
i.e., one where the network cable isn't there. If it can do this, it's extremely non-obvious how to set it up. Setting things up such that you get:
"Warning: vlan 1 is not connected to host network"
still leaves you with a device that always reports a link.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Does the "set_link e1000.0 down" monitor command do the trick? Only works with e1000 and virtio at the moment
It seems too. mii-tool lies, but it's known to be sort of broken.
