Glad to hear it. So all is working for you now?

I usually say "when using bridged setup, treat dom0 like a L2 or L3
switch. Get help from your networking guys if you're not familiar with
vlans and switches". So if your dom0 IP is also located on vlan2, then
you need to put the ip address on xenbr0 (or whatever bridge bond0.2
is located). This is similar to L3 switch setup.

For other vlans, if you don't need dom0 to have logical access to it,
you don't need to put IP address on the bridge. It can be up with no
IP address on dom0. This is similar to L2 switch setup.

On my implementations I usually use a separate interface for dom0
management IP, with bonding/vlan/bridges on other interfaces similar
to L2 switch setup.
