I use Multipass to develop and test a snap-based IoT stack which relies on NetworkManager’s D-Bus API to do network stuff. This also involves starting/stopping connections, but if anything goes wrong, I’m shut out of the Multipass instance.
My host OS is macOS 12.0.1, VM launches Ubuntu 20.04. Using multipass 1.8.1+Mac with default hyperkit backend.
I currently set
renderer: NetworkManager in the default Netplan config to allow NetworkManager to manage the ethernet connection.
- How would I add a “backup” network interface that is not managed by NetworkManager at all, so that I can still access the instance no matter what?
- Is there a better way to have a dummy interface managed by NetworkManager?
Thanks in advance
