you can ssh to (for example) fas1 then ssh to xen7.  I discovered that just
before I left on Friday.  This leads me to believe that something else on
our network is using that IP.  We'll have to look at the arp tables and
see whats going on.

The good news is this shouldn't affect the xen guests though, in theory,
it is affecting the iscsi connection on xen7.  xen1 and xen2 are the only
hosts we've seen actually rebooting though xen7 is new.
