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

CURRENT_INTERFACES='cloud0'

MANAGEMENT_INTERFACE='cloud0'

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

DEVICE="cloud0"

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

BRIDGE=cloud0

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 ?

Thx

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
