Network Interface configuration seems to be broken when using VM's and iocage
HP Gen 8 Microserver, 16GB ECC RAM, Xeon e3-1265, 3x3TB WD RED, 1x2TB Barracuda
Very new to networking so I might be doing something wrong here..... I'm on FreeNAS 11.1-Release
Anyway setup 2 VM's and using iocage for plex and a basic FreeBSD.
When setting up, FreeNAS creates two bridges one for iocage (includes vnets) and one for the VM's (includes tap0, tap1).
Problem is that my physical ethernet adapter can only be assigned to one bridge (which FreeNAS assigns to the VM bridge), and this means that my jails cannot access the internet.
The only solution I have found is once FreeNAS has booted, destroy the bridge containing tap0, tap1, bge1(ethernet adapter), and then assign them to bridge0 which is where my vnets are.
Question is - is this normal, or am I missing something here - appreciate any help please? Thank you!
I've attached to ifconfig output files :-
ifconfig.20180106.after.boot is the configuration just after boot
ifconfig.20180106.working is my modified network configuration.

Unfortunately it is a know issue and the way how you are doing is the right way!
We plan to have a standalone tool to manage VMs and I will work hard to solve this issue.
But for now, there is no other way.
