I nearly went cracy about this.

Here the failure:

Two domUs:

First domU MacAddress in config file other than aa:00:00:00:00:xx.
Second aa:00:00:00:00:11

One bridge with no ethx connected but with the ip

Second can ping
First not.

I tried everything. Changing the distros configs itself. Changing the 
hostname. Some variations in the order i added the doms to the bridge, I 
really dont know what to do anymore.

So the last thing i tried was to set the mac from the first dom to one of the 
form aa:00:00:00:00:xx. And it works. Now even the first dom can ping the 
second. Nice.

But why?
