I'm using Xen on RHEl5 and had created two guest instances.

Output of:
# rpm -qa |grep xen

I had manually booted this guest instances using the frontend that comes in GNOME.

I had configured the instances to autostart on boot and the service that does this is /etc/init.d/xendomains but did not test this.

Yesterday my server was rebooted and xendomains booted the guest fine. However I noticed strange thing that the system date of the guests was stuck/hung at exact time when the host machine was rebooted.

Then I turned off xendomains service and used the Gnome frontend to manually start the guest instances and the system date was back to normal.

Please can anyone explain whats happening here?
