Re: [Xen-users] correct steps to add XEN bridge to Debian squeeze?

Hi Rudi,

    i usually do this in my /etc/network/interfaces:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual
        pre-up ifconfig eth0 up
        post-down ifconfig eth0 down

auto br0
iface br0 inet static
        address 192.168.x.x
        netmask 255.x.x.0
        bridge_ports eth0
        bridge_maxwait 0

    Hope that i could help.

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?
