[libvirt-users] Ongoing VM saga ....

.... I have a 64-bit CentOS 5.6 VM running on a 64-bit FC-14 host. I was originally using the stock NAT networking on the guest, which could access the host, but nothing else on the network. I eventually found some links on how to setup routed networking on the guest using a specifically setup bridge. I followed the example a bit too closely, bridging my eth0 interface, which is the one I nornally use to access the host over my LAN. So eth0 temporarily ceased functioning & I had to undo my handiwork through the console on the host, which I virtually never use. I restarted networking manually a couple of time on the host, but eth0 was still fried. I then rebooted the host (still through the console) & that went AOK, took about 5 min. & all was well, eth0/SSH LAN access was back & I logged back in & tried to log into the VM to plot my next course of action & .... The VM address had moved. I had set it up to use static addressing (modified the ifcfg-eth0 on the VM & restarted networking, 2 or 3 times yesterday, installed compilers, etc. from the host, & all was well until I messed around w/ trying the roll-your-own bridge this A.M.). Which brings me to the real question: How do I figure out the IP address the VM is using so I can login & continue the festivities ? I found it yesterday through the VM (virt-viewer) console after setting up the VM the 1st time, but that doesn't work today either (black screen inside the viewer, no response to regular or ctrl-keys, etc.) :-/ .... 'virsh .... console' hangs virsh, etc. :-) .... Soooooo .... how do I recover that $&#&^$&#* IP address for the VM :-) ? TIA ....
