Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 519439
Network with virtual machine stops working after iptables restart.
Last modified: 2009-09-04 09:01:38 EDT
Description of problem:
/etc/init.d/libvirtd doesn't reacreate rules in FORWARDING chain in case iptables has been restarted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora 11, libvirt-0.6.2-14.fc11.i586
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start libvirtd, check iptables FORWARDING rules for virtual iface
2. stop iptables and see FORWARDING rules for virtual iface gone -- correct behaviour in my
3. restart libvirtd -- no rules recreated in FORWARDING
Actual results: no rules recreated after libvirtd restart
Expected results: working network with virtual machine.
Thanks, this is a known issue - iptables doesn't provide libvirt a way for these rules to be reloaded
