Description Ben 2006-03-19 17:41:36 EST
When installing a new domU, xenguest-install.py should be able to format a xen
config file that supports multiple NICs and multiple disks. Attached is a
version that does just that.

xenguest-install.py that supports the requested features
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-25 16:46:16 EDT
xenguest-install has been rewritten a bit and the backend code definitely
supports multiple disks/nics now.  The difficult part is how to handle it via
the command line; asking for more than one in the asking questions form of
xenguest-install is going to be very error-prone.  
Comment 3 Daniel Berrange 2007-01-11 16:23:14 EST
In FC6 and later, xenguest-install.py is replaced by the python-virtinst RPM.
The 0.98.0-1.fc6 release of python-virtinst contains support for multiple nics /
disks. There are no plans to add this in FC5 or earlier because they used the
legacy xenguest-install.py script.
