Did you try to look at the Red Hat website, or Google? Just putting "how to create nic teaming on rhel 6" into Google pulls up this:
https://access.redhat.com/site/docum...l_Bonding.html

...as the very first hit. From Red Hat's website, complete instructions, with examples.

Hi TB0ne,

I have followed those instructions but the problem is system is saying wrong entry in ifcfg-bond0. So asking your help. I am attaching screenshots for your ready reference. I tried to create bond on 2 ethernet ports eth0 & eth1 but it did not work.

It didn't work, because you didn't follow the instructions. You've got no bonding options defined, and have errors in your configs, and you're only showing ONE ethernet NIC up and active. If you want to bond, you need TWO.

Go back and re-read the instructions and follow them. Section 9.2.4 tells you how to configure things...did you read/follow it? Also, since you're using Red Hat Enterprise, have you called Red Hat support for help, since you're PAYING FOR RHEL, right???

also unless the NICs are true server class NICs you will lose performance instead of increase performance.
