Hello all,

I am trying to run dom0 with nfsroot.
I can boot it and start xend, it doesn't crash, but the bridge doesn't
get setup properly either.
I suppose this is because eth0 needs to be brought down by the bridge
script and at the same time it needs eth0 up for the filesystem.

I've found this.

"The workarounds for using nfsroot in dom0 at the moment are: a) use a
ramfs to configure the bridge; b) use a routed rather than bridged

The post is a little old I was was wondering what has happened since.

Are these still my two options?
Could someone send me some pointers on how to setup the bridge in the
initramfs scripts?
If I were to use routing, is live migration more difficult to do?

Thanks for any help.
