Ok, I've solved this issue by myself.
It turned out to be a MAC address conflict.

This is an Intel S5000PAL board with to NICs
LAN1 has MAC 00:15:17:77:4E:DE
LAN2 has MAC 00:15:17:77:4E:DF

So I assigned (see below) next MAC - 00:15:17:77:4E:E0
to first domU on that machine.

But unfortuately I've forgot Intel S5000PAL has
IPMI LAN capabilities that are preconfigured on
lan channel 1 and 2 of (LAN1, LAN2) with Mac
addresses... guess which? ;)
00:15:17:77:4E:E0
00:15:17:77:4E:E1

After simple change to:

> vif        = [ 'mac=00:15:17:77:4E:E2, bridge=xenbr0' ]

xm create install.cfg moved forward.
