Question More than 3 dummy network interfaces

Hi,

is there any limitation to the maximum number of dummy network interfaces in Fedora 19? I was unable to create more than 3 dummy interfaces... but I want four, or even more!

I've setup my dummy network interfaces like this...

Code:
[root@aio ~]# cat /etc/modules-load.d/dummy.conf 
dummy

[root@aio ~]# cat /etc/modprobe.d/dummy.conf 
alias dummy0 dummy
alias dummy1 dummy
alias dummy2 dummy
alias dummy3 dummy
options dummy numdummies=4
Note that I tried to setup 4 dummy interfaces, but I always get 3!

Any hint?


Thanks
- Frank

Re: More than 3 dummy network interfaces

Wired. This was a newly installed oVirt test host... I did a fresh install of Fedora 19 and now all dummy interfaces are being created:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# ll /sys/devices/virtual/net/
insgesamt 0
drwxr-xr-x. 5 root root 0  2. Sep 17:03 dummy0
drwxr-xr-x. 5 root root 0  2. Sep 17:03 dummy1
drwxr-xr-x. 5 root root 0  2. Sep 17:03 dummy2
drwxr-xr-x. 5 root root 0  2. Sep 17:03 dummy3
drwxr-xr-x. 5 root root 0  2. Sep 17:03 dummy4
drwxr-xr-x. 5 root root 0  2. Sep 17:03 lo
Wonder what prevented this from happening on the previous installation.
