You've copied the config from the existing server. The configuration for eth0 is
tied to the MAC address of the card on that server, this MAC address won't exist
on your DomU and so your interface will be assigned as eth1.

On your DomU, open the file /etc/udev/rules.d/30-net_persistent_names.rules. You
probably have a rule something like the following for eth0:

SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", SYSFS{address}=="00:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa",
IMPORT="/lib/udev/rename_netiface %k eth0"

Remove it and try restarting your Dom0.
