Hi all,

I made run some domU on my debian stable dom0

I got 2 NIC and I would like to attach my second NIC to a special dom0 (proxy)

I read some docs about it, I add pciback.hide=(0a:02.0) on my menu.lst and I start my domU (proxy) like that.

xm -create -c proxy pci=0a:02.0

I try with pci=['0a:02.0'] on my domU conf file

But none of this work for me.

I use kernel 2.6.18-5-xen-vserver-686

So I have two questions.
Is it possible to assign my second card to my domU with standard debian kernel ?
If yes where am I wrong ?

If you have a look for threads around one week ago, I was trying to
resolve very similar issue.

Anyway, I have same config as you Debian Etch, binary xen from deb packages.

1.) add the pciback.hide(00:00.0) to /etc/grub/menu.lst
2.) delete the record for that Network Card (MAC) in
3.) reboot computer and make sure that driver for that card is not
loaded (lsmod), there should not be eth* assigned to that card
4.) add pci = ('00:0.0') to domU config file
5.) start domU and make sure that:
        DomU have UDEV installed!!!
        DomU will load the driver
        DomU have record the card in /etc/udev/rules.d/z25*net.rules

And it should work.

PS: when you install UDEV in domU have a look in
/etc/udev/rules.d/z25*net.rules and delete all records - then reboot to
recreate them.
