Libvirt networking libraries

Fedora 21 workstation seems to come with a lot of virtualization features and most of the libvirt libraries installed. I only had to add the KVM vir­tua­l-­ma­na­ger which is the KVM application I am more familiar with. However, the new version of the libvirt* libraries have networking features that are great for the data centre environment, but maybe not the best option for a particular workstation, so I added the following packages in order to set up an easier network configuration for my local virtual machines.

sudo dnf install virt-install libvirt-daemon-config-network

In or­der to re­flect the chan­ges and start using the new fea­tu­res, we need to res­tart its ser­vi­ce:

systemctl restart libvirtd.service

After tha­t, when crea­ting a new vir­tual ma­chi­ne, the NAT op­tion is ena­ble­d, and the vir­tua­l ­ma­na­ger wi­th hand­le the NAT or bri­dging con­fi­gu­ra­tion au­to­ma­ti­ca­ll­y, whi­ch allo­ws me to de­ploy new ­ma­chi­nes fas­te­r.
