Re: [Xen-users] Some questions about Networking and storage.

Thank you so much.
For setting up a network must I edit my "eth0" file or if I use "vif=[ 'bridge=mybridge' ]" in DomU configuration it is enough?
For storage, If I understand, I can use my Physical partition for my Guest and use a Virtual HDD also. Can you show me how can I setting up a Real partition and a Virtual partition for my guest?

I'm a young in Xen.

Decide how you want your guests to access the network(s) and work from there. All of my servers use virtual switches (bridges).

That's much more a matter of preference. You can use files in the hosts filesystem, or separate partitions (usually LVM for flexibility). And when using partitions, you can use one partition per guest and let the guest partition it as though it was one big virtual disk; or you can have one partition per guest volume.
Personally, I use LVM and create a logical volume for each separate filesystem on the guest - so there'll be an LVM volume for ${guest}-root, another for ${guest}-var, and so on. But that's just my preference.
