Has anyone used KVM as means of creating a virtual home lab with separate vlans. I have tried time and time again to get separate vlans created using virtualbox and have followed the documentation found on dev central but its seems out dated as I could not create separate vlans using bridging.
The following is my current lab setup and configuration possibilities I am seeking advice on.
Host: Laptop running Ubuntu 16.04 (using 15.10 but will upgrading soon to the new LTS)
Guests: Some distro running lamp, debain or centos
Network: I was able to configure the management interface just fine 192.168.1.254
VLANS: I am not too experienced with kvm so I am not sure the best way to configure seperate vlans. But I have attempted this but again I could not created the vlans for so that my Guests could send traffic on.
Ideas that I have been tossing around:
-use cumlus vm switch to emulate a switch and assign vlan ids and vlans on it
-using avaya os to emulate switching and routing... not sure if avaya can also do L3 switching or not?
Any suggestions and or experiences will be helpful
