We find nontrivial configurations for antisymmetric tensor gauge fields on Calabi-Yau manifolds, which have vanishing stress-energy tensor. Our construction is a complex version of the Freund-Rubin ansatz. For certain ten-dimensional models, these configurations provide preferential compactification to anti-de Sitter × Calabi-Yau.
