Thread-topic: Error while creating VM
In continuation with my previous mail, I changed the vif entry in the config 
file as,
vif = ["mac=00:16:3e:43:b7:99,bridge=xenbr0"] and I was able to boot into the 
guest, but I was not able to ping any system from the guest. 
I have attached the snapshot of the boot error messages.

Thank you

I am facing the below error while creating a VM.

Error: Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Could not find bridge device 
xenbr0 peth0

Please find below the config file used for creating the VM.

name = "Copy_Copy_Copy_RHEL52VM1"
uuid = "e782c1f2-b261-4b77-89b1-d45eff123ac3"
maxmem = 1024
memory = 1024
vcpus = 1
bootloader = "/usr/bin/pygrub"
kernel = "/var/lib/xen/boot_kernel.YYqIP5"
ramdisk = "/var/lib/xen/boot_ramdisk.oSpizK"
extra = "ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 console=xvc0 rhgb quiet"
on_poweroff = "destroy"
on_reboot = "restart"
on_crash = "restart"
vfb = [ "type=vnc,vncunused=0,vncdisplay=0,vnclisten=,keymap=en-us" ]
disk = [ "tap:aio:/var/lib/xen/images/Copy_Copy_Copy_RHEL52VM1.img,xvda,w" ]
vif = [ "mac=00:16:3e:43:b7:99,bridge=xenbr0 peth0,script=vif-bridge" ]

The output of the brctl show command is as below.

bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
virbr0          8000.000000000000       yes
xenbr0          8000.feffffffffff       no              peth0

Please guide.

Thank you
