Network Bridge Issues

Postby steedy27 » 2012/03/26 13:19:44

Hi guys

I am trying to setup a network bridge to use in Xen, I have done yum install bridge-utils

I am using this guide here :http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualization-with-xen-on-centos-6.2-x86_64-paravirtualization-and-hardware-virtualization

Everything is fine when setting up the bridge when i add "BRIDGE=br0" into my network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file and when I do /ect/init.d/network restart I get an unknown connection error from eth0.

I have created my br0 file exactly like in the guide

I am using DCHP

Does anybody know why this could be?

Thanks

Trevor - Have only just noticed your reply. My Eth0 and Br0 files are below for any future refrence

To get it work I had to use a static IP address instead off DHCP

br0 (you can have up to 2 DNS settings)
DEVICE=br0
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Bridge
BOOTPROTO=none
DELAY=0
IPADDR=***.***.***.***
PREFIX=24
GATEWAY=***.***.***.***
DNS1=***.***.***.***
IPV6INIT=no


eth0
DEVICE=eth0
ONBOOT=yes
HWADDR=**:**:**.....
TYPE=Ethernet
IPV6INIT=no
BRIDGE=br0
