NAME

ifcfg-macvtap - MACVTAP interface configuration 

SYNOPSIS

/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-*

 

MACVTAPs

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

It may contain the optional

MACVTAP_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

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

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

For use as an interface that is passed to a virtualized guest, manualconfigurations of IP and route for the macvtap device on the host arenot needed. See also man ifcfg and man routes for details.

 

EXAMPLES

Sets up macvtap0 macvtap interface on top of eth0:

ifcfg-macvtap0

   STARTMODE='auto'   MACVTAP_DEVICE='eth0'
