I'm trying to figure out how to give a VM a static IP before it's been started and without having to modify any of the VM's network startup scripts. In looking at XenServer examples people recommend doing something like this in the configuration file:


That doesn't seem to be an option in XCP with the CLI with xe vif-create. What am I missing here? Any help is appreciated. Maybe this is a networking question non-specific to Xen and I don't realize it. I'm using 0.5.

Also, if anyone can point me to some good documentation/tutorials on XCP networking that would be great. So far I've looked through all the stuff in http://www.xen.org/files/XenCloud/ and http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenNetworking.
