RHEL 5.3 update on ProLiant ML370 G5


We've just updated from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 to 5.3 on one of our ProLiant ML370 G5 servers. This server is a host for several Xen Virtual Machines (some also running RHEL5 and some Windows 2003).

I have yet to reboot the server to try the new kernel, but I have found that after the 'yum update' I am now unable to restart one of the Xen Virtual Machines after shutting it down. (I did this after also updating this VM from RHEL5.2 to 5.3). I'm thinking that perhaps a reboot of the ML370 using the new kernel may resolve the issue, but I'm a little worried that if it doesn't and Xen is in fact broken somehow, I may not be able to restart any of the virtual machines. And this is a production server.

So I was just wondering if anyone has had any similar experiences or has any advice for me.

Here is the error that I'm getting when I try to start the Xen VM which I've shut down:

"Error starting domain: virDomainCreate() failed POST operation failed: (xend.err 'Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.')"

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much.
