    Hi again guys.

    Today i am doing again an installation of a SUSE 12.1 server (minimal install)
    And I am about to put this server as a production server.
    Following again falkos guide at ..

    which is basically the same i am stuck at the point where i need to create the dummy0 interface and be able to use it from startup (boot) time.

    Please help me out here i am stuck here.

    I tried with modprobe but can't seem to get it to work.

    Why do you try to create a dummy0 interface and not a bridge as shown in the tutorial?

    Thank you for the reply falco.

    Maybe you remember my other post about setting xen over Centos6.2
    Now i am setting kvm over Suse 12.1 minimal install.
    And I have again the public IP addresses for the server.
    If you remember I have the server ip and the other 4 ip's the third octect changes and I need to create a bridge nat wont work since all the IP's are public.
    So i need to create a bridge which according to your tutorial works but i need to create the dummy0 to use it as the bridge and do not use eth0 as the bridge.
    This is of course a different server but needs to be installed same as centos (my other post) but with suse.
    My other post was this ..
    and now i am doing the same but with suse 12.1
    Thanks Falco.
