Hi,

I would like to know if it's possible that a OpenVZ container could have multiple network interfaces.
If so, how to do it?

Thanks,
Antonio Huete

venet:
you can assign multiple IP addresses, just add them after you created the container (separated with spaces) on the GUI

veth:
via CLI (see 'man vzctl')

Via 'man vzctl', for veth, you should end up with something like:

vzctl set <VMID> --netif_add eth<N>,,,,vmbr<M> --save

for adding an interface eth<N> in the container <VMID> to bridge vmbr<M> in the host.

To remove eth<N> from container <VMID> trigger:

vzctl set <VMID> --netif_del eth<N> --save


Tom, what about adding support for many veth devices to the web GUI as a low priority feature request?

Hi,

is it also possible to asssign different mac addresses for each IP?
I can't reach the second IP after a network Upgrade at the data centre.

This does not seem to work till after vzctl restart 111. Am I missing sometihng.
vvoice2:~# vzctl set 111 --netif_add eth1,,,,vmbr1 --save
Container does not have configured veth: eth1, skipped
Configure veth devices: veth111.1
Saved parameters for CT 111

hy everyone

i have Debian 6.0 i386 with openvz 686

i make some containers and them work good

but i wann make a container with multiple public ips to container

at server i have made bridge this is the config

Code:
root@smallhosting:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface

brctl addbr br0
auto br0
iface br0 inet static
bridge_ports eth1
 address 89.42.231.180
 broadcast 89.42.231.255
 netmask 255.255.255.0
 gateway 89.42.231.1
the id of container is 113

this is conf of 113.conf

Code:
VE_ROOT="/storage/vz/root/$VEID"
VE_PRIVATE="/storage/vz/private/$VEID"
OSTEMPLATE="debian-6.0-i386-minimal"
ORIGIN_SAMPLE="basic"
HOSTNAME="test.smallhosting.ro"
NAMESERVER="193.231.169.2"
SEARCHDOMAIN="smallhosting.ro"
VETH_IP_ADDRESS="89.42.231.113"
NETIF="ifname=eth1.113,mac=00:02:04:06:08:02,host_ifname=veth113.0,host_mac=00:19:99:c4:66:87"
so i tryed a lots of times and search 2 weeks on google to read how to make this

so i tryed like this:

i installed vlan and i config interface like this

Code:
brctl addbr br0
auto br0
iface br0 inet static
bridge_ports eth1
 address 89.42.231.180
 broadcast 89.42.231.255
 netmask 255.255.255.0
 gateway 89.42.231.1

auto eth1.113
iface eth1.113 inet static
        address 89.42.231.113
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        #gateway 192.168.110.254
        #network 192.168.110.0
        broadcast 89.42.231.255
        vlan_raw_device eth1

auto eth1.124
iface eth1.124 inet static
        address 89.42.231.124
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        #gateway 192.168.110.254
        #network 192.168.110.0
        broadcast 89.42.231.255
        vlan_raw_device eth1
113.conf was this

Code:
VE_ROOT="/storage/vz/root/$VEID"
VE_PRIVATE="/storage/vz/private/$VEID"
OSTEMPLATE="debian-6.0-i386-minimal"
ORIGIN_SAMPLE="basic"
HOSTNAME="test.smallhosting.ro"
NAMESERVER="193.231.169.2"
SEARCHDOMAIN="smallhosting.ro"
VETH_IP_ADDRESS="89.42.231.113/24;89.42.231.124/24"
#BRIDGEDEV="br0"
NETIF="ifname=eth1.113,mac=00:02:04:06:08:02,host_ifname=veth113.0,host_mac=00:19:99:c4:66:87;ifname=eth1.124,mac=00:02:04:06:08:04,host_ifname=veth113.1,host_mac=00:19:99:c4:66:87"
i restarted the network

Code:
