My bond0 is stuck in round-robin mode
 
Hi!

We upgraded firmware and it defaulted our NIC bonding to round robin. We want it in active-transmit mode (mode=5 not 0)
I have defined mode=5 in the ifcfg-bond0 and modprobe.conf files. I have restarted the network and I have issued the modprobe bonding command. I still see the interface as round robin.

My ifcfg-bond0 config is similar to:
------------------------------------
DEVICE=bond0
IPADDR=10.92.200.xx
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
GATEWAY=10.92.200.x
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
USERCTL=no
BONDING_OPTS="mode=5 miimon=100"
TYPE=Ethernet
IPV6INIT=no
PEERDNS=yes

My modprobe.conf entries:
--------------------------
alias bond0 bonding mode=5
options bond0 miimon=100


Any suggestions on how to knock it out of round robin?
