xenserver:~# brctl show
bridge name	bridge id		STP enabled	interfaces
eth2		8000.0026b9824238	no		peth2

It is showing eth2 that is what is my problem is I am running xen 3.2
and if I refer to that doc it should be xen-br0 since they are
mentioning that bridge name will be same as the interface name if it
is xen 3.3 or above.
