Network bridge in Debian 11

Accessing a TrueNAS guest from the Ubuntu host
1 project | reddit.com/r/qemu_kvm | 11 Oct 2021
if you can still use /etc/network/interfaces on ubuntu, here is a setup i use on debian with qemu-bridge-helper to auto-setup the taps. then in virt-manager you just select br0 as the bridged interface to use (or virt-install --network bridge=br0,model=virtio). i find it easier than the virsh net-start stuff.
Creating a Linux gaming VM without second monitor?
1 project | reddit.com/r/VFIO | 9 Oct 2021
If you're using vfio then you won't have a virt-viewer window and don't need spice, just toggle the input on your monitor, here's a script I used to setup a Ubuntu vfio guest, it's easier than windows or macos https://github.com/sej7278/virt-installs/blob/master/ubuntu_vfio.sh

Intel i225-V doesn't support bridges?
1 project | reddit.com/r/kvm | 2 Oct 2021
my qnap I225-LM's work fine on debian Bullseye and Sid (5.10-5.14 kernel) although i'm pretty sure Buster didn't even detect it with a 4.19 kernel. i use the old /etc/network/interfaces setup though not netplan and all that jazz.

(semi)Automated access like over virt-viewer in case networking fails?
1 project | reddit.com/r/kvm | 1 Sep 2021
I use virt-install scripts to configure the VM which can be combined with Kickstart, pressed, ansible etc. Doesn't need any display at all. You can use virsh console which is basically a serial console.
VM's cannot ping each other using local network
1 project | reddit.com/r/qemu_kvm | 31 Aug 2021
i didn't like using virsh to do it either, i ended up doing it the debian way using /etc/network/interfaces and brctl, see my notes - your main nic will then become br0 not eth0, so you may have to adjust firewall rules and stuff that's expecting eth0.

No network adapter found in esxi installation [ kvm ]
2 projects | reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 17 Aug 2021
if you're using esxi7 you have to use the vmxnet3 interface not e1000, but you'll want to use bridge not nat for nested virt: https://github.com/sej7278/virt-installs/blob/master/esxi7.sh2 projects | reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 17 Aug 2021

Why do all KVM tutorials assume that I want to install a new OS on my vm, rather than use an existing disk image(s) converted from virtualbox?
1 project | reddit.com/r/kvm | 16 Jul 2021
then virt-install --import the disk image (with suitable settings). i made a bunch of virt-install scripts to do it for me when i did that.
