Hey there David,

All very valid questions, I believe there is a runbook for cloudstack/kvm,
I don¹t know how relevant it is today. Not sure if its being actively

The unabridged install guide has loads of useful information it can be
found in the link[1] below.

If you deviate from a simple vanilla install (hypervisor using 1 nic, type
scenario) you should create the bridges out of band.

I also don¹t believe there is any restriction on naming your bridge. Just
remember to have them match up to what cloudstack has as its traffic type

Hope that helps.
