Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install guest with tree RHEL5.7-Server-20110622.0
2. start the guest
3. try to attach interface to guest with following two commands
a. # virsh attach-interface rhel57-new network default vnet0 --model e1000
b. # virsh attach-device rhel57-new interface.xml
# cat interface.xml
both of the two commands got success to attach the interface to rhel5u7 guest , but without reboot the guest , guest won't recognize the interface automatically
Besides, after shutdown guest, attached device xml won't be removed from guest xml file.
guest can recognize attached interface automatically without reboot .
rhel6 guest won't encounter this problem .
And for rhel5u7 guest, attach virtio disk device doesn't work as well .
load acpiphp in the RHEL5u7 guest will resolve the problem . Since it is expected , close this bug as NOTABUG
