Re: [Xen-devel] network dropouts

So, network availability drops out even without unprivileged domains. I'm using default xen configuration, machines are on the same subnet ( and, connected by switch.

Does it matter that Gentoo (in current stable version) uses `ifconfig` and `route` to setup networking and /etc/xen/scripts/network uses iproute2 package? It shouldn't, AFAIK.

One thing that I don't understand is that `ifconfig` shows that eth0 holds its IP address even after xen-br0 has been brought up (and xen-br0 has /32 netmask...):
(lo removed from output)

Are you using DHCP to set the eth0 address? I wander if the drop
outs occur when the lease expires. Have you tried getting
dhclient/dhcpcd to set the address for xen-br0 rather than eth0?


no, I'm setting it manually via `ifconfig` in init script. Notice the following lines in kernel log:

Dec 12 20:33:23 zirafa xen-br0: port 1(eth0) entering disabled state
Dec 12 20:34:23 zirafa xen-br0: port 1(eth0) entering learning state

Why is eth0 (the only physical device in xen-br0) getting into disabled state?
