Oracle Linux 6 Oracle VM Guest may loose network connection. When that happens, no ping is possible and the guest only recovers when restarting network service (or ifdown/ifup against the interface), reboot the vm or live migrate it.
Nothing is logged in the message file on dom0 and domU when this happens.
Guest VM is using UEK2 kernel (2.6.39-400.xx).
