I have been running kvm with a bridge on my fedora machine for a while, when trying to run docker on the same host access to the kvm hosts would die as soon as docker came up. I read up online and most places mention that the two technologies should be able to co-exist with each other without any problems, after some further searching I was able to find an article that mentioned that if you have already setup a bridge for KVM you can tell docker to use this bridge. I was able to test this on my setup and it worked allowing docker to run without interfering with the existing bridge. Looking at the interfaces I can still see docker created an interface
The docker configuration involved adding this file
Make sure the bridge number matches your existing bridge number in use by kvm.
