Docker MacVLAN on AWS

Hi all,

I am having some problems with Docker MacVLAN. When I create a network with Docker MacVLAN and two containers, the two containers can ping each other but neither one can ping any machine on the internet. The Internet is unreachable.

I also tried this very simple example:

sudo docker network create -d macvlan --subnet=192.168.1.xx/26 --gateway=192.168.1.yy --aux-address="exclude_host=192.168.1.zz" -o parent=eth0 mynet

sudo docker run --net=mynet -it --rm image/centosbase:v1 ping -c 4 8.8.8.8

this also fails.

When I do, from within a container, ip a show eth1 I get:

35: eth1@if2: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 9001 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN 
    link/ether 02:42:c0:a8:01:42 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff link-netnsid 0
    inet 192.168.1.xx/26 scope global eth1
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 fe80::42:c0ff:fea8:142/64 scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

Is it normal that the state is UNKNOWN?

Docker using the default bridge mode works with no problems.

I am using Docker version 1.13.0, build 49bf474 on a CentOS7 VM.

Any idea on what I may be doing wrong? Or perhaps is AWS that does not allow the use of the macvlan driver?

Thanks.
