The reason why I have only one physical NIC is that, the server will be a dedicated server collocated in the datacenter. Therefore, I don't see any need to have additional NICs.


Question regarding the LVM.
I will dispose hardware RAID 1. I will create a volume group on the whole disk. Then I will make 2 logical volumes, one for dom0 root and one for dom0 swap. I don't see any clear advantage of making more LVs with separate mounting points

I agree.
BTW - for RAID1, install GRUB (or whatever bootloader you are using) to the boot sectors of both drives - that way the system can boot from either drive. If you only install the bootloader on one drive, if that fails then your system will keep running but won't be able to boot.

I plan to make new domU on additional LV in the same VG as dom0. Does it make sense ?

Yes, that's what I do.
