LXC in Diskless Client

I have setup a diskless client with rootfs over NFS. I need to run LXC on this diskless client, which requires a bridge to be configured for LXC.

But I can't configure a bridge over diskless client as network connection breaks down in doing making the client fail since rootfs becomes inaccessible.

What I can do to run LXC over diskless machines?

I have installed bridge-utils package.


1. NFS server is on Freebsd
2. Debian netbooted through nfs (Working)
3. Trying to create a bridge on Debian netbooted system. I have installed bridge-utils and using commands to add bridge as:
brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 eth0
After last command, it says NFS server is not responding and the netbooted system has to be rebooted to make it run again.
