I'm totally new to virtualization and have a problem.

My virtual machine fails to access internet cause DHCP isn't available. When I try to assign it an IP it also fails, probably because I need to assign that IP from the host to route it to the bridge or something.

The question is: Do I need to assign the bridge IP-info, and if so, how do I do it?

show output of this: xm list -l <domU>. Make sure that you have the vif connected to the correct bridge. Explain your setup with more detail. You dont NEED dhcp to make it work. –  Leo Nov 5 '10 at 14:18
I found out. I don't know why xenbr1 didnt work though, but when I used xenbr0 instead it worked perfectly. THanks though =) –  user59302 Nov 5 '10 at 14:53
