::XEN and Bonded Interfaces::

This is a howto make bonded interfaces available from the hostos to the guest os. ImageYou will need to create your two bonded device ( as usual ) then create a script in /etc/xen/scripts eg : mynetwork

   dir=$(dirname "$0")
   "$dir/network-bridge" "$@" vifnum=0 netdev=bond0
   "$dir/network-bridge" "$@" vifnum=1 netdev=bond1

Make sure to make the script executable

   chmod +x /etc/xen/scripts/mynetwork

You will also need to modify the /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp, look for the line :

   (network-script network-bridge)

   modify it to be
   (network-script mynetwork)

Restart network / restart xend / restart xen network ( or reboot )

   service network restart
   service xend restart
   /etc/xen/scripts/mynetwork stop
   /etc/xen/scripts/mynetwork start

To check that everything is working

 [root@uscobrmfa-lt-99 scripts]# brctl show
bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
xenbr0          8000.feffffffffff       no              vif1.0
xenbr1          8000.feffffffffff       no              vif1.1
