I want to setup a bridge in XenServer with a name other than xenbr0 , for example cloud0.

I edited those files and their contenent so they can handle a bridged connection:

  • /etc/xensource-inventory



  • /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-xenbr0 to ifcfg-cloud0


  • /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0


but it didn't gave a result even with "ifdown xenbr0" and all those modifaction are not persistent with XenServer reboot.

So what are the right steps to change the xenbr0 bridge name ?

No sure why you want to do this. In general, don't choose XenServer if you wan't to hack - choose the Xen kernel. – 3molo Sep 14 '12 at 10:49
So there is no way to make those changes in xenserver because files are autogenerated ? – toto Sep 14 '12 at 11:07
