That's it!  Thank you.  I didn't see this my first time through the man page, but I knew there was a command I was supposed to run.  This makes much more sense now.

I am, however still having problems.  When running the define command I got the following error:

virsh # define /etc/libvirt/qemu/vsys1.oberon.modsim.mil.xml
libvir: QEMU error : No <source> 'dev' attribute specified with <interface type='bridge'/>
error: Failed to define domain from /etc/libvirt/qemu/vsys1.oberon.modsim.mil.xml

My bridge section looks like this:

    <interface type='bridge'>
      <source dev='br0'/>
      <target dev='vnet7'/>
      <mac address="11:22:33:44:EE:FC"/>
    </interface>

Do I need to create the vnet7 device before hand?  I thought this might be something libvirt created on startup.  Or, is the define error related to something else?  My current XML file appears to be well formed.

Thanks for your help!

Did you do 'virsh define file.xml' to actually update libvirt's idea
about what the domain XML is?

Rich.
