Is anyone running a Windows HVM guest with QEMU-emulated networking? I
recently tried to connect a Windows 7 HVM guest to my network using
vif-nat. For some reason, the setup does not work. Oddly, Dom0 lists
the vif interface associated with the guest as "NO-CARRIER" even though
the DomU Windows guest seems to recognize its virtual network interface

I have no problem with a similarly configured guest running Linux.

I am using Xen 4.7.1.

The guest configuration is:

name      = "windows64"
memory    =  2048
vcpus     =  1
builder   = "hvm"
altp2mhvm = 1
vif       = [ "script=vif-nat,ip=,gatewaydev=wlp3s0" ]
disk      = [ "tap2:tapdisk:aio:/path/to/disk-windows64.img,xvda,w",
              "tap2:tapdisk:aio:/path/to/spare-vfat.img,xvdb,w" ]
serial    = "pty"
sdl       = 1
