I have to configure Xen server and DomU's which should be able to talk to different vlans - depending on services put on DomU's.

I would like to enslave 2 NICs via bond interface.
Both NICs are on trunk ports which are configured in the same way, the same native vlan.

I don't know, if I have to add vlans tagging to eth* interfaces then enslave tagged eth* interfaces to bond interface and then set up a bridge
først enslave eth* interfaces to one bond interface and then add vlan tagging to that bond. Bridges would be set up per vlan.
What is the real difference between this to approches?

Then, I would like to have bridges bound to different vlans - one vlan per bridge, or more vlans per bridge, depending on domU's services. What about IP addressing - do I have to assign IP addresses to the bridges or to the DomU's?
