RE: [Xen-users] bridge-utils problem


Thanks for all your suggestions.
Finally I found the problem that the interface xenbr0 cannot get the IP 
Here is the procedure that I did:

#since dhcpcd starts when eth0 is running, I shut down it.
kill [pid of dhcpcd]
ifconfig eth0 
dhclient xenbr0

Without shutdown the dhcpcd which has been run by eth0, dhclient cannot get the 
IP for xenbr0.
But I still don't know why this would happen. Did I miss setting anything?
I follow the procedure of the following website which provides solutions in 
general cases (not XEN). 
I am still wondering what is the right procedure to set IP for xenbr0 while 
fetching IP from DHCP?
Any response is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
