I have installed CENT OS 5.4 with Hypervisor(XEN) on a blade server. When I log in in to the console and fire the command 'xm list', I can see domain-0. So Hypervisor is installed successfully. But I am not able to bring this machine on the network.
In 'ifconfig -a' I can see virtual interfaces(veth0, veth1 and associated vif) and bridge interfaces(xenbr0 and virbr0) created, but assigning IP to any of them is not helping because even after doing this machine is not coming on the network.
As I am completely new to XEN, I was going through xensource document to configure the networking where I learned about 'bridge' concept. But I was unable to get a clear idea of the architecture and that's why unable to configure the IP addresses of interfaces and bring them on network.
As of now I have not installed any guest os(VM) on this machine, and for now objective is to bring the host machine on network.
Can anyone of you be able to guide me how to (which interfaces) configure networking here. And also provide link to some comprehensible document, if available, which will guide me through whole configuration.
