No bridge setup and trouble creating one


Nov 30, 2019
Hey, I recently installed proxmox and in trying to create a VM, it is not showing that a bridge exists:


And there is no option in the drop-down. My machine is connected to the internet via an ethernet cable and ip address shows lo, eno1, and vmbr0.

I then went tried to create a bridge on my only node but it seemed to show that the bridge was already created:


Am I missing something? I thought the bridge was usually set up automatically upon install?
I solved this by going to my node > Network > create > Linux Bond. This created a bridge for me.
