Thread-topic: [Xen-users] No shared physical device in virt-manager
Sorry for not being more specific before about the OS version in my previous 

For the installation, I followed the redhat PDF on setting up xen doms and 
guests.  I downloaded (via yum) the xen and virt-manager packages that are 
"native" to RH.

When I try and create a new guest it seems to work fine until I get to the 
networking devices.  When I tried using a virtual adapter instead of a shared 
physical it comes up as a subnet.  I am able to ping and 
communicate using the virtual adapter, but if I try and change the virtual 
devices IP to anything other than the subnet, no communication 

I am wanting to build out 2 guests that I can place on the internet with public 
IP's but so far have been unsuccessful because of the networking issues.

well, I wasn't clear, sorry. Did you install the CentOS/Red Hat Xen 3.2 rpm 
that xen.org provides or do you use the "native" xen (3.0/3.1 mix) coming with 
RHEL 5? If yes (for Xen 3.2), then this patch should help.
