I had a XEN VM machine running correctly until I brought eth1 up in the dom0 to use for Heartbeat...

Since I activated eth1 XEN does not bridge on eth0 anymore but selects eth1?

How can I tell XEN to use eth0 as its' default?

The /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp file has an entry for managing the network script. Look for something like this:

(network-script 'network-bridge netdev=eth1')

And change it to use eth0.
