I am running Xen on Debian wheezy. I switched from routed networking to bridged
networking. Now I can't seem to get eth0 to come up. When the network script
tries to bring it up, it gets an error: RTNETLINK answers: File exists

Any tips? details below


root@trout:/etc/xen# egrep -v '#|^ *$' xend-config.sxp
(network-script network-bridge)
(vif-script vif-bridge)
(dom0-min-mem 196)
(enable-dom0-ballooning yes)
(total_available_memory 0) 
(dom0-cpus 0)
(vncpasswd '')

root@trout:/etc/xen#  ifup eth0
ifdown: interface eth0 not configured
RTNETLINK answers: File exists

root@trout:~# brctl show
bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
eth0            8000.8c89a511f016       no              peth0

root@trout:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces
# The primary network interface
auto eth0

iface eth0 inet static
