Your /etc/network/interfaces file should look something like this.. this works for me but I am on a hardware platform for dom0 rather than a vm.


auto lo

    iface lo inet loopback


    iface eth1 inet manual

    auto xenbr0


    iface xenbr0 inet dhcp

        bridge_ports eth1

Subject: [Xen-users] Bridged, have IP, can't ping anything, including the gateway


First off, let me start by saying that I am new to Xen.  I do have experience in Virtualization, but mainly VirtualBox and VMWare.


I'm attempting to test Xen in preparation for the physical server arrival this Friday.  The dom0 is currently running on a VirtualBox VM, which I'm wondering if that could be the issue that I'm having.

I'm almost 100% up and running. I worked through some issues I had with bridging the network.  I've finally got it to a point where I am getting a DHCP address.  The dom0 machine is .190 and the domU is .213.  I cannot ping the gateway nor anything else from the domU (Debian) nor can I ping the domU from anything else on my network.  I haven't seen anything in IPTables that would indicate any issue there.  Does anyone have any other suggestions?
