Re: [Xen-users] Xen Installation without virtualization enabled in Bios
Dustin pretty much described where you need to look next. Since PV is
working, it's definitely a configuration issue in your dom0.|
Have a quick look at:
Then check your:
/etc/xen/xend-config.sxp (in your dom0)
And then check your domU's network configuration.
We need to know if you've set Xen in either, bridging mode, routed mode
or NAT mode in your dom0. If you're able to ping dom0 from your domU,
are you setting static IP's or using DHCP, etc.

The virtualization option in the BIOS is for HVM (Full
Virtualization). Seeing as how you had guests before this option was
enabled, you are clearly using PV. As such, the option would have no effect
that I know of. That said, your problem probably lies in Xen configuration.
Is this your first Xen box? Hopefully someone skilled at troubleshooting
network connectivity issues in Xen can assist you with this.

Basically, I have this strange issue where everything is good, I can create
my virtual guests, but there is some issue with network connectivity. I can
get to the outside world no problem from the virtual host, but on the
guests, I can only ping the local machine, I cant ping or access anything on
the outside world.
At first I was taking a look at drivers and other network related problems,
when I noticed that the virtualization option in the bios cpu settings was
NOT enabled. I enabled it, but im still having the same problem.
My question is: Would installing RHEL 5 and Xen while this option was NOT
enabled in the bios cause problems and perhaps cause this networking
connectivity issue im experiencing? Do I need to reinstall xen?
