Description of problem:
An HVM guest created from the same config file does not attach to the network bridge when created with xl but does connect when created with xm, using the same configuration file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have this error on 2 different machines, using 3 different guests.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fc16 HVM guest
2. Create xen config file, e.g. "alpha"
3. xm create /etc/xen/alpha
4. Xen guest alpha can reach network
5. Shutdown guest alpha
6. xl create /etc/xen/alpha

8. brctl show sez vif is not attached to xl created guest
xl created HVM guest cannot reach network using same config file that does work for xm
HVM guests created with xl should be able to reach network

This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Hi John, sorry this bug didn't get a response. F16 is becoming unsupported real soon now, so closing this bug as WONTFIX for F16. If you can still reproduce this issue on F18, please reopen.
