Thanks. That was exactly what I needed to do. For some reason my brain was stuck on needing to go through the virtual networking garbage.
I did, however, need to use the second NIC for the bridge. If I attached the bridge to the primary NIC it took the IP address and applied it to the bridge. This removed network address to the host.
This guide helped too: https://www.linux-kvm.org/page/Networking
What’s weird is that I can’t restart the network service (systemctl restart network). This happens:
This made it so with every change I made to the network config I had to do a complete reboot. Which sucked.
But the VM is now up and can access the NFS share and is accessible from other systems. Cool. Thanks again.
