hi all - has anyone had any issues with MAC addresses when creating a 
new xen domU instance via koan?  here is what i'm running into:

create host in cobbler with this MAC addy: 00:9c:5A:2c:50:8F

run "cobbler report"...looks good, run "cobbler sync"...no problems.

run this koan line:
koan --virt --server=maa-master --system=maa-xen2 --virt-path=/var/xen 

cat /etc/xen/xen2:
[root at maa12 xen]# cat /etc/xen/xen2
disk = [ 'file:/var/xen/xen2,xvda,w', ]
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:2e:27:5e, bridge=xenbr0', ]

so it looks like the MAC i'm assigning in cobbler is not being assigned 
to my xen instance.  is this expected, or am i missing something here?
