Thanks Fajar.

I can see both libvirt and dnsmasq running. 

# ps -ef | grep -i dnsmasq
nobody   12663     1  0 11:48 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/dnsmasq -s example.com
root     12680  6494  0 11:48 pts/4    00:00:00 grep -i dnsmasq

# ps -ef | grep -i libvirt
root     11455     1  0 11:45 ?        00:00:00 libvirtd --daemon
root     12703  6494  0 11:48 pts/4    00:00:00 grep -i libvirt

I could see dhcp-range commented in /etc/dnsmasq.conf , so uncommented it and added the right ip network range and restarted both dnsmasq and libvirt service , but no luck .


Will try a fresh installation ..

I strongly suggest you start by upgrading your RHEL installation.

After that, check your setup. A correct, unmodified setup should have
libvirt (or is it libvirt-bin?) service started, which would create
virbr0 bridge, and start dnsmasq. dnsmasq will function as both DNS
and DHCP server for domUs.

If you don't have virbr0, or don't have dnsmasq running, then it means
you broke the default setup.
