I’m trying to prototype some server apps and I want to create VMs on fc29 (modular server, and SilverBlue). After mixed results with libvirt-vagrant, I decided to try pure libvirt (4.7.0) and started looking for example scripts out in the wild… Well, there’s a lot of activity in 2015 - 16 and then it gets very quiet. I found the results a confusing hodgepodge of iproute2/brctl/systemd.network/nmcli.
What if we were to vote up the best solution(s)?
I venture that people here have either:
- solved this problem,
- have seen a clean solution,
- or know someone who evaluates solutions for a living
and can post links here. Also, if we have activated reputation scores on Discourse, we could have the best solutions voted to the top by experts.
Selfishly, I would like to propose a few criteria for evaluation:
- Most use of current tools (or: Least use of deprecated tools)
- Best for Servers
- Best for Clients
- Fewest user interfaces
Here are some sources I consulted (ie. the high frequency search results):
