Thread-topic: Networking in dom0
I'm running xen-unstable, changeset 10058, on sles10RC1 - x86_64. When I build xen-unstable, boot dom0, and type ifconfig, I only see 2 network interfaces - eth0 and lo. The xen interfaces such as peth0 and xenbr0 do not show up. However, if I edit /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp and change the (network-script network-bridge) statement to (network-script 'network-bridge vifnum=0') and restart xend, the xen network interfaces are configured and show up when I type ifconfig. I was under the impression from the documentation that default values are used in the network-bridge script, and that no parameters need to be specified.  Can someone clarify this?
