network interface bridge create

  • I am trying to create an interface bridge.

    I created the following 3 files with the associated content;

    After reboot the bridge is created.

    7: br0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state DOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/ether fe:8b:43:6e:61:1c brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff


    # brctl show
    bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces
    br0 8000.fe8b436e611c no

    no interface is present.

    I can add it manually.

    from what I can tell from syslog, the br0 interface is created before the real interface (enx00e09700528f) exists, race condition?.

    Question is, how do I get the nic interface to stick to the bridge at boot time.? or, is there a better way to create a bridged interface?

    Added the Label OMV 5.x
  • did as you suggest. Thanks for the pointer.

    but I had to include the mac address (which is the same as the host adaptor mac address) to get this to work.

    Developers.... Would it be possible to get a "create bridge" button on the network->interfaces tab and/or an option in omv-firstaid tool?



  • I had everything configured with NetworkManager (nmtui).

  • yea, I tried that but it did not work (see my first post). Reading the docs for networkd it say that files in /etc/networkd/network have precedent which means that I think the "real" adaptor is not up before we try and create the bridge.

    Seeing as OMV uses netplan. I would suggest this should be the recommended method to achieve a working solution.
