Just a quick note for the search engines to find – peth0 can go missing from
ifconfig if there is a
GATEWAY= entry in ifcfg-eth0 (anaconda puts it here) and presumably -eth1, etc.. Put the default gateway in
/etc/syconfig/network instead and use
route-eth1 files instead to specify gateways.
Reboot for xend to do its setup correctly (please commment if there’s a way to do this without reboot that works…) and instead of ‘no peth0′ you’ll find one now exists. Also, your xenbr0 will be set up properly.
