Running this command:

# virsh -c qemu:///system list 

As root user, hangs with no error message. Not sure what's causing this. This problem started after a power failure in my lab. When I brought the hypervisor server up (Oracle Linux 6.3, 2.6.39-300.17.3.el6uek.x86_64) I had to reconfigure the network because the device names (eth4 -> eth0) changed and network config reverted to dhcp for some strange reason. Even after resolving this, it virsh hangs with no error message.

Where should I be looking with regard to troubleshooting?
