Smile Ethernet bonding


I have setup ethernet bonding in one of HP servers runnning RHEL 5.2.
Overview of my bonding setup is below:
eth2 & eth3 --->bond0
eth4 & eth5 --->bond1

Whenever i restart the network services, it says warning bond0 is using Hardware address of eth2 and bond1 is using Hardware address of eth4. which is infact true, but why is this warning coming, as in my other server same setup is working fine and i don't see any warning there.
Is there any way to avoid it.

Next if i reboot the server the bond0 and bond1 shows up but corresponding ethernets are showing down.
I have to then do modprobe -v -r eth2/eth3/eth4/eth5 to get it working.

I would appreciate your help on this.

Regards
Jeetender

What do your configs look like? Can you post them here for each? How do they differ from your other server?
