Using multiple network cards in XEN 3.0

Xen is great. But installing more than one network card became a pain when I tried it the first time. There are some documents describing the principle but I was unable to find a real life example somewhere else. So this is a summary about how it works here now. Using a bridge for a Dom is generally a good idea but then all packets traversing the bridge can be intercepted by any Dom that is using the same bridge. Having a single network card in a Xen landscape also means that theoretically each Dom would be able to sniff all packets traversing this single network card including packets to and from other Doms. A solution is to have more than one network card attached to Xen using a single network card for a single dom. The scenario described here has a server with 3 network cards installed. The first card should be used to access Dom0 and some other DomNs while the second and third network card should be used to purely access Dom1 rsp. Dom2. The Dom configuration file just needs to select the appropriate bridge for each dom.
