Re: [Xen-users] VIF Script
You could still use the link, it just needs to be created, but this is
persistent across updates and does not offend XEN's functionality.|
So it is just creating the link once at the setup, no later maintenance.
Absolute paths don't work as you just recognized, and changing the
script location would need recompilation AFAIK (and you would need all
other scripts in you new location, too).

I guess I could mount my vif scripts directory to /etc/xen/scripts via
NFS. I just like having the vif script placed in the same folder as the
DomU config file.

If you mount all the "/etc/xen" directory thought NFS, your vif scripts

Well truth be told I haven't set up multiple Xen hosts yet. But my
place was to mount the config directory (which will contain the DomU
config files as well as a vif script for each DomU) via an NFS mount in

Create the link, yes. Manually, not necessary.
How do you propage the xend's conf, and the domu's conf ? And how do
you add your NFS mount ? Scripts, rsync, puppet, etc ?
So, you can use the same way, no ?

Well, since I want the config files to be accessible across all Xen
hosts, wouldn't that mean that every time I added a new VM, I'd have to
create a link in /etc/xen/scripts on every xen host manually?

Thanks, but my reasoning behind wanting a different path, is that I
will eventually have multiple Xen systems and wish to have a common NFS
mount for all the xen hosts. Additionally, each DomU will have a
different vif script, as I will be offering some basic firewalling
(using iptables) to my customers

In the DomU config file, I am able to use script=xx for the VIF section
to select a network script. However, this script must be located in
/etc/xen/scripts. Is there any way to make the DomU config look in a
different path? Specifying the absolute path to the script doesn't seem
