Default Configuring bridges to use with KVM

Hi all,

I have a problem with an ubuntu lucid 10.04 server used for KVM virtualization. My
problem appears when I try to configure an "empty" bridge in /etc/network/interfaces
file. For example, with a RedHat based distro (RHEL, CentOS) I can create a config
file ifcfg-br20 like this:


and then network startup script creates an empty bridge without bind any physical
interface. I have tried same procedure to configure several empty bridges under
ubuntu without luck:

auto intprodif
iface intprodif inet static
bridge_stp off
bridge_fd 9
bridge_hello 2
bridge_maxage 12

When i try to start this bridge with "ifup intprodif" command returns me this error:

carlos@silmaril:~$ sudo ifup intprodif
Don't seem to be have all the variables for intprodif/inet.
Failed to bring up intprodif.

How can I define an empty bridge without binding any physical interface into it??

Many thanks.
