Re: [Xen-users] dom ID 1 not auto starting


I removed the first dom in the autostart list and restarted the server,
again it won't start the first dom in the list (different name).

I then checked the physical server configuration and it actually has 2
NICs, but only 1 is configured and operating.

Could it be the second unconfigured NIC that is causing my problem?
