so basically I have written a provisioning system that provisions from a billing system onto XEN. Right now I am assigning a DHCP IP to the guest on boot. The host access the client server via ssh and runs a few things...One of which is the configuration to the network connections. My requirements dictate that the VLAN must be changed after this process which requires a reboot(time).
So the two things I can't seem to figure out are A) Can I "Inject" the ip address into the guest without having to utilize SSH(maybe a command?).
B) Can I change VLANs on the guest without having to reboot.(current process powers down, destroys NIC, adds NIC, powers up.
