I have configured a DHCP Server on (older) linux machine. The DomU, and
the Virtual Machine get their IP address from this DHCP server. When the
connection is lost of the virtual machine, the connecton of DomU is not
lost. So, I don't think it is a problem with the DHCP Server or DomU
machine. But, in january, my DomU has crashed, and I have installed a new
one. The virtual machine was not crashed, so I configured the DomU to use
the 'old' virtual machine. This was done with the Suse Virtual Machine
Manager. This seem to work, until I updated to Service Pack 2. I have
found that Novell-zmd seem to give problems with Xen, so I disabled it on
the DomU and the Virtual Machine, but, the connection is still lost. I
also checked if there is any 'double' mac-address in use, but I'm sure,
there are no 'double' mac-addresses.
