Description of problem:
On a new host, I want to set up my default network to use 192.168.123.0/24 instead of the default 192.168.122.0/24 to match network topology decisions already in effect elsewhere in my home network. But while virt-manager makes this look possible (see bug 738751), there is currently no support for making this edit with the gui; and I must drop to virsh.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit->Connection Details of a qemu connection
2. Select the "Virtual Networks" tab, and look at the Network: field
3. Try editing the Network field
I should be able to change 122 to 123, and restart the network with the new parameters, all without having to drop to virsh.
Found during Fedora Virt Test Day:
Not really relevant for a fedora backport so moving to upstream tracker
Networks can be renamed in upstream virt-manager now. Someone could use that infrastructure as a launching point for implementing more XML changing in the UI

Bug 1171192 was asking for option to edit network 'domain' field
This RFE is open for 7 years. Is there any possibility to see this implemented?
I would really like to have all network management from the GUI as well.
I've been thinking about a different approach WRT this stuff, and probably just adding a raw XML editing screen. I'll need to experiment with it though
There's so many config options nowadays that going down the road of picking and choosing what to expose for editing in the UI is an endless treadmill of stuff with a generally small audience of users for the majority of bits.
First of all, I am happy that this is not a dead RFE. If I may. Why don't you start with something simple, like for example the option to create networks and/or modify the IP ranges?
This will cover the most basic needs. And then we will see :)
There's already an option for creating networks, there's a whole wizard devoted to it. Click the + button on the network page
Correct. But not for editing the network! At least no option that I found.
