Hi All,

I am facing an issue regarding communicating a value from outside to a Guest OS (linux, solaris and windows) launched on Xen Server.

I did went through this thread, but It was not completely clear. http://lists.xensource.com/archives/html/xen-users/2006-07/msg00473.html My question is - Is there a way in Xen, through which I can communicate a value from outside to a Guest OS (linux, solaris and windows)?

One of the posts said we can pass the foollowing parameters to kernel by making entry in the xen config file -

vif = [ 'ip=' ]
netmask = ""
gateway = ""
hostname = "ds-1"

In the first place, I could not find any Xen config file in /etc/xen. Where can I find it? Does this solution work with windows as well?

Thanks in Advance,
Anil Katti.
