This cross-posted from the main Centos discussion list.
I installed a new CentOS-6.3 kvm guest on a recently provisioned kvm
host also running CentOS-6.3. This guest will not connect to the
network and the host cannot connect to it via its public IP address. I
had previously installed a guest system on thst same kvm host using
the same ISO and that system connects to the network without problem.
I next created a third guest instance and this too does not connect
with either the kvm host or the gateway.
I have shutdown all the guests, restarted networking on the host and
restarted the gueests and the problem persists on the two most
recently added guests but does not happen on the first guest instance.
I have installed litterally dozens of kvm guests this past year and I
have never encountered this situation. Has anyone else? Does anyone
have any idea what might be going on?
