Re: [Xen-users] IP-Address for DomUs via configuration script possible?

Hello again and thanks for the fast answer. But i think u misunderstood
me. I do not have access to the DHCP. I give you the scenario:

i want my clients to have the possibility to create DomUs
(windows-xp-machines) via a php-script. They click: "create" and the new
xp-machine gets created. BUT they need access to this machine via Remote
Desktop and so this new just created machine needs a IP. So the
possibility you told me needs a lot of configuration. I need to set up a
DHCP on the dom0 and create dynamically new mac-addresses for the domus
(thier config-file) and also edit the configurationfile from the dhcp of
the dom0. BUT i dont want to set a dhcp on the dom0. I want to have the
possibility to assign the ip-address via a script or sth. like that...
