Hi All,

I have been using OpenVZ for a few months now, and I've been having a
problem with VE's running for longer then a few days - the hardware
node ignores ARP queries for VE's that are running on it.  The VE has

When things are working, I see a line from 'arp -a' for the
  [root@sonata ~]# arp -a
  ? ( at 00:07:E9:5F:BA:60 [ether] on eth0
  ? ( at 00:1B:2B:2C:C3:4D [ether] on eth0
  ? ( at * PERM PUP on eth0

When things stop working, the disappears from the output
of 'arp -a'.  An entry for stops appearing in
/proc/net/arp as well.

A tcpdump show the arp query arriving on the hardware node.
  [root@sonata ~]# tcpdump -nni any arp
  tcpdump: WARNING: Promiscuous mode not supported on the "any" device
  tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode

  15:30:23.973453 arp who-has tell

Further info:
 - VE is running with ip
    [root@sonata ~]# vzlist |grep
           105        125 running      

 - Centos 5 with a OpenVZ kernel from the yum repo
    [root@sonata ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release 
    CentOS release 5 (Final)
    [root@sonata ~]# uname -a

Anyone have any idea what is going on?  Is there something further I
can do to debug this?  

Thanks in advance for any responses,
