I am considering setting up a bhyve virtual machine to run pfSense.
Not too thrilled with the CPU heat on the PC Engines APU1D4 when
under heavy load, but don't want to rely entirely on a VM. As I like
still having internet if I would have to take my server offline for
disk replacement or other issues, having web access to search for
errors is a big plus. So in order to avoid spending money on a new
piece of hardware I thought why not do a VM with CARP fail over to
the physical. I am not finding much searching on FreeBSD byhve and
CARP, I know its somewhat of an issue withing VMware on ESX making
sure you enable the right options on the virtual switches and
this makes one wonder if it would be possible to run the pfsense code
in a vnet Jail.
Enable promiscuous mode on the vSwitch
Enable "MAC Address changes"
Enable "Forged transmits"
Before I got started on the setup I was curious if anyone has done
something similar, or know if this isn't possible on bhyve at the
current version? I am running my system currently on 10.3-BETA3.
