Subject: [ovirt-users] Multiple NICs on hosted engine?
I have installed the first node of a new oVirt 3.5 setup with a hosted
engine VM. I have multiple networks: one public-accessible and one
private (with storage, iDRAC/IPMI, etc.). I set the engine VM up on the
public LAN, but now realize that it can't access the power control. I
tried to add a second NIC to the engine VM through the web interface,
but of course that doesn't work (because it isn't really managed there).
How can I add a second NIC to the hosted engine VM?
From the web admin:
1. You have to select the hosted engine
datacenter and than create a new logical network.
2. Select the new logical network and under the cluster tab ensure that it's
associated to the hosted engine cluster
3. Select your hosted engine host and, under the network interfaces tab, select 'Setup
Host Networks' to bind a physical interface of that host to the new logical network
4. At that point you can select the engine VM and add a new nic choosing the right profile
to bind it to the second logical network
Keep in mind that we had a bug in oVIrt 3.5.0 in that area.
If you added an additional logical network to the first hosted engine host before adding
the second one, you won't be able to deploy it.
No problems if you deploy the second host and only than you add the second logical network
configuring it on both the hosts.
We already fixed it but it will going to be released with 3.5.1
