Hi all,

Does anyone know what the correct steps are to add a XEN bridge, let's
say xenbr0 to Debian Squeeze?

I have added the following to /etc/network/interfaces

# XEN Bridge
auto xenbr0
        iface xenbr0 inet manual
        bridge ports eth0
        bridge_stp off
        bridge_fd 0

And then rebooted the server but brctl show still shows eth0 as bridge:

newusaxen:~# brctl show
bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
eth0            8000.003048c461be       no              peth0

newusaxen:~# ifup xenbr0
ifup: interface xenbr0 already configured

newusaxen:~# ifconfig |grep xenbr0

What else should I be doing to get it up and running?
Kind Regards
Rudi Ahlers
