I am running Xen
3.0.2 on a minimal installation of Debian etch. I have two DomU's, both
also running Debian etch. This was all installed within the past few days,
so it's the latest stuff.
I'm running on Dell
server hardware purchased in November of 2005, so it's fairly new and
pretty powerful. I don't know for a fact, but I think it's safe to assume
that the two NIC's are identical.
I cannot get the second NIC interface working in
either DomU, even though the first works just fine. When I try to do an
"ifup eth1", I get the following errors.
SIOCSIFADDR: No such
eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such
SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
SIOCSIFBRDADDR: No such
eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
Failed to bring up
Note that eth0 is
working perfectly, and I get this exact same error message in both DomU's if I
try to bring up eth1.
I have made my own
wrapper script to call network-bridge twice, and everything in Dom0
looks great. I have two bridges, the right virtual interfaces, and my Dom0
eth1 works great.
This might be
related... I just tried to start one of my DomU's and got this error
"Error: Device 0
(vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working."
That hasn't happened
before. I ignored the error and tried to start the domain again...
and it worked the second time.
Any help would be
greatly appreciated. I am completely baffled, so even suggesting something
to try would be helpful. Please keep in mind I am still something of a
Linux / Xen n00b. =)
