Hello Edwardh and all.
I keep getting these disconnects, were you able to find anything about
to suggest changing ?
As I mentioned this machine different from the others where it never
happened uses the ovirtmgmt network as VM network and has kernel 4.12
instead of the default 3.10 from CentOS 7.3. It seems a particular
situation that is triggering this behavior but could not gather any hint
I have tried to run a regular arping to force the bridge always learn
the VMs MAC address but it doesn't seem to work and every in a while the
bridge 'forgets' that particular VM mac address.
I have also even rebuilt the VM completely changing its operating system
from Ubuntu 16.04 to CentOS 7.3 and the same problem happened.

Hello Edward, this happened again today and I was able to check more
- The VM stopped passing any network traffic.
- Checking 'brctl showmacs ovirtmgmt' it showed the VM's mac address
- I then went to oVirt Engine, under VM's 'Network Interfaces' tab,
clicked Edit and changed the Link State to Down then to Up and it
recovered its connectivity.
- Another 'brctl showmacs ovirtmgmt' showed the VM's mac address
learned again by the bridge.
This Node server has the particularity of sharing the ovirtmgmt with
VMs. Could it possibly be the cause of the issue in any way ?

Not tried this yet Edwardh, but will do at next time it happens. THe
source mac address should be the mac as the VM. I don't see any
reason for it to change from within the VM ou outside.
What type of things would make the bridge stop learning a given VM
mac address ?

Have you tried to use tcpdump at the VM vNIC to examine if there is
traffic trying to get out from there? And with what source mac address?

Has anyone had problem when using the ovirtmgmt bridge to
connect VMs ?
I am still facing a bizarre problem where some VMs connected to
this bridge stop passing traffic. Checking the problem further I
see its mac address stops being learned by the bridge and the
problem is resolved only with a VM reboot.
When I last saw the problem I run brctl showmacs ovirtmgmt and
it shows me the VM's mac adress with agening timer 200.19. After
the VM reboot I see the same mac with agening timer 0.00.
I don't see it in another environment where the ovirtmgmt is not
used for VMs.
Does anyone have any clue about this type of behavior ?
