[Starlingx-discuss] exposing instance to the public network in the virtual starlingx installation

We have a test virtual starlingx AIO-DX installation. One instance
should be reachable over the public network (at layer 2).

I tried adding a direct (macvtap) interface to the controller-0 libvirt
definition. However, after connecting that macvtap interface to the VM
instance, the ingress packets are not getting to the instance, most
probably because the instance's MAC address is different from the one
of the macvtap interface. There's some openstack macvtap documentation:


but I'm not sure how to create "physical_interface_mapping" with system
helm-override-update. Anyway, not quite sure if that would help.

Is there a better way to achieve this?

Recommendations and tips welcome.
