NAME

ifcfg-macvlan - MACVLAN interface configuration 

SYNOPSIS

/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-*

 

MACVLANs

To setup a macvlan interface you need a configuration file that contains atleast the mandatory
MACVLAN_DEVICE
variable with the real interface used for the macvlan virtual interface.

It may contain the optional

MACVLAN_MODE
variable that may be set to one of the following supported modes: "private", "vepa","bridge" and "pass-through/passthru". The default mode is "vepa".

You may also use the

MACVLAN_FLAG
variable to set the "nopromisc" flag. By default, this flag is not set.

An ifcfg- file for the interface specified by MACVLAN_DEVICE mustalso be provided. In the most basic case, it should at least containSTARTMODE='auto'.

The rest of the MACVLAN interface IP and routes configuration do not differfrom ordinary interfaces. See also man ifcfg and man routesfor details.

 

EXAMPLES

Sets up macvlan0 macvlan interface on top of eth0:

ifcfg-macvlan0

   STARTMODE='auto'   MACVLAN_DEVICE='eth0'   IPADDR='192.168.3.27/24'

Sets up macvlan0 macvlan interface on top of eth0 and uses DHCP
for IPADDR configuration:

ifcfg-macvlan0

   STARTMODE='auto'   BOOTPROTO='dhcp'   MACVLAN_DEVICE='eth0'
