Hi all,

I know this topic has been discussed a lot on this list, and I've been going over some posts from months past trying to get things to work on my end, but I need another appeal for help. I'm setting up a dom0 under Red Hat EL5, with 2 NICs. From looking over the old posts, it looks like the best way to do this is to create bonds, vlans and bridges under Red Hat and bypass Xen's initial network-bridge script. I looked at what Fajar had said:


And I tried duplicating this, mind you, without the patched ifup script and setup something like this:

- (eth1 + eth2) = bond0 with mode 2
- create VLAN bond0.2 to bond0
- attach bridge xenbr0 to bond0.2
- modified xend-config file: (vif-script 'vif-bridge bridge=xenbr0')

This appears to work, but when I create guests and attach them to the xenbr0, no dice. My question is, is the above correct and where to the IPs go? Dom0 has it's own IP address, but what interface/bond/ VLAN does that go under? Should the other items have IPs as well?

My network kung fu is limited, so I apologize in advance if these are stupid questions.

many thanks,
