Network GUI error message


Hi all,

My issue is with my Fedora 9 virtual machine that is running a Scalix mail server (host is F12).

The F9 VM was running fine until this morning when for no reason it crashed as I attempted to initiate a realVNC connection with it.

After a reboot users were unable to send mail to external addresses. When I try to check the network settings by selecting "System" -> "Administration" -> "Network", I receive the following error message:

Code:
Component: system-config-network

Please check your logs on the virtualization host. It might show clues. If you want independently available, off-site logging then configure your guest VMs to use remote syslog.

Your first priority is to ensure the system works, not enabling email. Please check the filesystem, the guests bootup and system logs and any software / configuration updates (gone wrong?).
