Debian 9 OVH Bridge Network Configuration

When you run VPS on OVH network behind bridge network, you need to create VMAC for each IP and assign to your network card.

Once this is done, you need to use following network configuration in your /etc/network/inferfaces file.

FAILOVER_IP = the IP you will be using for the virual machine.

GATEWAY_IP = IP of the Host server with last digits replaced by 254. If your servers main IP is XX.YY.ZZ.100, then Your GATEWAY_IP is XX.YY.ZZ.254

Here is an example config file i use in one of my VPS

I made a pull request to OVH as OVH documentation use route command, that is deprecated in Debian 9 and Ubuntu 18.04. We need to use “ip route” command instead of “route” command.
