What are the actual network configuration in dom0 and domU? How are your
bridges setup? What hotplug scripts are you using? Are they triggering?
etc. What I'm looking for here is specific details like the outputs of

or /etc/network/interfaces (depending on distro) in all the involved
Also how are you starting the netback-domU guest (command line), what is
its configuration file?
Same for the other-domU.
How are you attaching the vif to dom0, what command are you running to
make that happen?
When the system is setup with all domains running what does "xenstore-ls
-fp" contain? This will contain details of which device if attached to
