Hi guys.

I've been sroogling and now I'm writing in hope some experts 
stumble upon this one:

a case:
a) all guests are KVM, all CentOS.
b) I have NM managed OVS bridge and libvirtd network to/on 
that bridge
c) "regular" NM bridge and network off it in libvirt

guestOVSa <-> guestNMBRa => pings OK
guestOVSa <-> guestNMBRa virtual IP = cannot ping, 
"Destination Host Unreachable"
The host on which guestOVSa resides pings both those IPs OKey.

Before I share configs/commands & more, I thought I should 
keep it concise in case I'm missing something trivial, simple.
any thoughts and ideas on how & what to investigate are very 
many thanks, L.
