I need to add an alias ( to my bridged interfaces on my Ubuntu Server.

My /etc/network/interfaces is:

auto br0
iface br0 inet static
        bridge_ports    eth0
        bridge_stp      off
        bridge_maxwait  0
        bridge_fd       0

Any ideas?

Add the next lines to your br0 configuration (e.g. after bridge_fd 0):

up /sbin/ip addr add dev br0
down /sbin/ip addr del dev br0

When the interface is brought up, the IP address is added to device br0. Similarly, the address is removed when the interface goes down.
