Hello: I am trying to follow the RHEL virtualization guide to set up a bridge on a system running CentOS 5.4. I copied my ifcfg-eth0 to ifcfg-eth0:1 and set its content to this: DEVICE=eth0:1 HWADDR=[The MAC address from eth0] ONBOOT=yes BRIDGE=br1 I then created ifcfg-br1 with this content: DEVICE=br1 TYPE=Bridge BOOTPROTO=static BROADCAST=192.168.2.255 IPADDR=192.168.2.202 NETMASK=255.255.255.0 NETWORK=192.168.2.0 ONBOOT=yes DELAY=0 When I do service network restart, I get this error: error in ifcfg-eth0:1: didn't specify device or ipaddr I specified the device so it looks like it wants an IP address but that is contrary to what I am reading on the Internet. Any ideas what went wrong?
