[Xen-users] Re: second bridge for dual homed machine!

Good Morning!

What I did was copy the network-bridge script to network-custom (you can 
name it anything) and change vifnum=${vifnum:-0} to vifnum=${vifnum:-1} in 
the second script.  Then for the last line in the network-bridge script I 
put in the path to the second script: /etc/xen/scripts/network-custom 
start so that it calls the second script when the first finishes.  Make 
sure your new script is executable.  Like the previous writer mentioned 
the developers expect these scripts to be customized.  If there is an 
'official' way to do it I haven't seen it.  Note that if you do 
./network-bridge stop that it will *not* stop xenbr1.  You will need to do 
that manually just as you did xenbr0.   (I'll eventually get something 
written for that).
