Description joherr 2012-09-06 11:23:13 EDT
Is it possible to display more information about the network devices such as which devices are bonded together or part of a bridge.

This would allow the user to more easily select the interfaces for conversion.
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-12-14 03:18:49 EST
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

New "Network interfaces" dialog

I don't believe it's possible to display information about bonding
because that would require knowledge from the operating system that
is being converted, which virt-p2v does not have access to.

However, I can display more useful information about the network
interface, including the MAC address and the Vendor, which should
make identifying them a bit easier.

I have modified the Network interface dialog to display this extra
information, and the result is shown in the attached screenshot.

Patch commited upstream:
