EDIT: Actually worked after I restarted the server.

Added the secondary IP via WHM, didn't work.. Rebooting worked and brought up the IP.

Ah, thanks. I hadn't seen that guide before, I was looking at a few but they were in French and didn't seem to work when I clicked the "English" option.

Seems to work now

Hi

Yes you will need a Virtual Mac for Xen, it is required for bridge networking. You can use either OVH or VMware Macs for Xen.

Then in XenCenter when you create the VM you insert the Mac when it asks for it, see http://help.ovh.ie/xenserver

Hello,

I've got XenServer 6.2 installed and am trying to configure the network on a Windows VM.

I am unsure what to do in the control panel with the Virtual MAC etc ? I only get the option for "Add Virtual MAC" and "reverse"..
Under "Add Virtual MAC" I get the following the following options for "Type of MAC:" "ovh" or "vmware" - Which do I choose?

I've tried vmware:

Do I need to put the virtual MAC in XenCenter somewhere?
