    configure RAC template with one NIC for testing using VM 2.2

    user12030447
      Hi,

      I would like to build a testing RAC environment for myself using VM server 2.2 and the RAC vm template. I have followed the guide (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/products/clustering/overview/rac11203-ovm-tmplt-test-config-439679.pdf) and it says: "_+It is also possible, in the test configuration to use the templates with only 1 NIC, by assigning all guests’ NICs to the single bridge (xenbr0) OR creating a second bridge (xenbr1) on a fake Dom0 NIC (eth1), also known as ‘Host-Only networking’ which would disable the live-migration option.+_"

      I am using a desktop PC with one NIC only for such testing environment. I am very green to vm networking and want to know how to "creating a second bridge (xenbr1) on a fake Dom0 NIC (eth1), also known as ‘Host-Only networking’ ". Can anyone help? The RAC is for self-testing and performance is not a concern to me.

      Thanks,
      Kit
