Xen virtual using bridging
A year ago I installed CentOS and configured Xen.
Recently I upgraded to 3.3.x
First my network wouldnt work and after a long time of trying I seem to have it fixed (I used the libvirtd networking guide to fix this)
Now, a few months later, I reboot my server and networking is again not working anymore.
The setup is as follows:
The goal is to have all these accessible from/to any of these devices
I need a bridge for this so I configured it.
The Dom0 I want to be accessible trough 192.168.1.11 and the DomU through 192.168.1.10
There is no dhcp needed.
I added a ifcfg-br0 config (with "Bridge" and not "bridge"/"BRIDGE" in it)
ifcfg-eth0 I configured to use br0.
In example configs I have seen that the bridge IP was assigned through dhcp. But I dont want to assign it through dhcp. So I configured the 192.168.1.11 address for it.
When I restart the networking service the Dom0 is accessible through 192.168.1.11 and can ping any other except the DomU.
If I do arp -n then I see that the HWaddress for the DomU is incomplete (aka no answer?).
If I do the same on the DomU (through the console) I see a HWaddress for the Dom0 (192.168.1.11), however this is the address of the br0 interface.
Now I wonder if eth0 is the physical interface, or br0.
I would think some interface in ifconfig should have an HWaddress that accepts all traffic.
The interface of the DomU (vifx.0 or something) and eth0 is added to the br0.
Does anyone knows what I do/understand wrong and explain to me?
Maybe I do not understand the bridge workings correctly.
THanks alot in advance!
EDIT: in the output of arp -n on the DomU I meant that the mac was shown of a tap interface instead of the br0 interface
