Ticket #2391 (closed defect: fixed)
host networking unreliable
|Reported by:||hramrach||Owned by:|

The host networking often breaks.
Usually the machine would boot and not get any ip address (pausing during the boot process) but restarting network later brings the network up.
In some cases the network just works or it does not work at all. I tried looking with tcpdump, and while the virtual machine tried to obtain the IP address I saw packets coming from the DHCP server. Also the DHCP server logs show the machine asking for address and the server sending offers. The virtual machine never sees the offers, though.
