Description Tom Horsley 2012-01-15 20:27:48 EST
Description of problem:

I just got a libvirt update, and when I rebooted my system I found the
virbr0 interface had been created and dnsmasq running.

Long ago I removed the default network definition via:

virsh net-destroy default
virsh net-undefine default

Yet now, a libvirt update has apparently brought it back.

Seems like a bug to me that a sysadmin's libvirt configuration
would be changed by an update.

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

How reproducible:
Just did the update, but I suspect it would happen again.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.see above
Actual results:
Default network has apparently returned.

Expected results:
Leave my configuration alone.

This question really needs to be discussed upstream, but I'm starting to think that Fedora should ship a libvirt-config RPM that contains things like the default network so people can avoid having the default network configured if they don't want it.

We ended up doing that in F17 at least. Maybe worth doing for F16.

Tom, you can actually make it stop by just doing

virsh net-destroy default
virsh net-autostart --disable default

Skipping the undefine step should prevent libvirt from enabling the network.
Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2012-10-20 22:27:47 EDT
I think F17 got this right on upgrade, so just closing as CURRENTRELEASE
