RE: [Fedora-xen] Fedora Core 8 + Xenbr0 + network bridging?

Thanks to both of you guys for helping me out with this! I think I've
gotten the idea and now have eth0 up and functional in the way you

However, I realized that there is one additional thing that I would like
to do and that is have eth0 and eth1 bonded together and have the Xen
machines use that bond just like they are currently using the eth0

I tried doing this in the way that I normally would, bonding them
together, however, it didn't seem happy afterward. Have either of you
guys done that and if so are there some gotchas I might have missed?

Either way, thank you so much for helping me out with this and
explaining it! It is very much appreciated!

I have a bridge on VLAN 6 so I call it br6 you can use xenbr0 is you
like. Mine mostly looks something like this after removing the VLAN
trunk complication:

# cat ifcfg-eth0

# cat ifcfg-br6

Now your primary IP of your dom0 lives on the br6 interface. Your domU's
will be on the same VLAN and should see your DHCP server. Don't forget
to enable IP forwarding.

# grep phys /etc/sysconfig/iptables
-A FORWARD -m physdev  --physdev-is-bridged -j ACCEPT

# grep forward /etc/sysctl.conf
# Controls IP packet forwarding
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1

p.s. use 'brctl show' to see your bridges.
