I am running NetBSD 5.1 amd64 dom0 and i noticed some problems with

I am running re0 and bridge0 interfaces on the machine. Whenever i boot dom0
it takes nearly 10 minutes for the network to be active. I can-not
ping or ssh into dom0.
Is this common?


Note: I never had this problem when running a non xen enabled kernels.

Without further information (network configuration), I would say that the bridge setup with re0 is the culprit. You probably have conflicting MAC addresses on your LAN, and the thing settles down by itself after arp/route cache expiration.

Does it also happen when you turn dom0 as a L3 gateway (using "script=vif-ip")?
