I've created virtual machines with virt-manager and now I have to export, change and re-import xml configurations: I don't have a regular xen configuration file but and xml. Here's the mine.

<domain type='xen' id='2'>
    <boot dev='hd'/>
  <clock offset='utc'/>
    <interface type='bridge'>
      <source bridge='xenbr0'/>
      <target dev='vif2.0'/>
      <mac address='00:16:3e:3f:54:42'/>
      <script path='vif-bridge'/>
    <disk type='block' device='disk'>
      <driver name='phy'/>
      <source dev='/dev/VolGroup00/WinXP'/>
      <target dev='hda'/>
    <disk type='block' device='cdrom'>
      <driver name='phy'/>
      <source dev='/dev/cdrom'/>
      <target dev='hdc'/>
    <input type='mouse' bus='ps2'/>
    <graphics type='vnc' port='5900' keymap='it'/>

I know that I should have the bridge xenbr0 but I don't know why... Where should I check?
It's stange beacuse the linux vm's network works well.

That's weird. You should also have some tap interfaces for HVM domains.
Do you remember to put "type=ioemu" on winxp's vif config line?

It says your bridge is called eth0

But xend.log says you're using xenbr0 in your config file.

The befault network-bridge script should create a bridge called xenbr0.
If you use a custom bridge script, you should modify your domU config
accordingly. It should be (on your setup) something like

vif = [ 'type=ioemu, mac=SOME_FIXED_MAC_ADDRESS_HERE, bridge=eth0' ]
