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.
