Redhat - Nic Bonding/Teaming


Hello,

I am currently tasked with teaming two sets of dual nics on a redhat es3 server. I am able to team both ports on the first nic without error, but when I try and create the second team I am unable to bring up the interfaces.

The first set of nics are configured as follows:

# /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1
# Intel Corp.|82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100]
DEVICE=eth1
USERCTL=no
BOOTPROTO=none
HWADDR=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
ONBOOT=yes
MASTER=bond0
SLAVE=yes
TYPE=Ethernet

# /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth2
# Intel Corp.|82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100]
DEVICE=eth2
BOOTPROTO=none
HWADDR=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
USERCTL=no
ONBOOT=yes
SLAVE=yes
MASTER=bond0
TYPE=Ethernet

# /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-bond0
# Intel Corp.|82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100]
DEVICE=bond0
USERCTL=no
BOOTPROTO=static
BROADCAST=xxx.xx.xx.xxx
IPADDR=xxx.xx.xx.xx
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=xxx.xx.xx.x
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet



I then added the following line to /etc/modules.conf
alias bond0 bonding

The settings work great as long as I only have the one team. When I try and create a second team using eth3,eth4, and bond1 the interface fails to start.

The error received is:

bonding device bond1 does not seem be present.


Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Shawn

add the following lines to /etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/module.conf (depending on your distro)

alias bond0 bonding
options bond0 miimon=80 mode=1

alias bond1 bonding
options bond1 miimon=80 mode=1
