Network interfaces named ___tmpxxxx in redhat


Hi,

i have bond0 configured with eth0 and eth3 on a redhat enterprise linux 5.7.

when i reboot the system, sometimes interface shows as ___tmpxxxx in ifconfig -a.

Do i need to put HWADDR in the slave interface as well.

i have placed it. is it ok to put HWADDR= opton when interfaces are in bond.

also do i need to place TYPE=BOND in the bond0 configuration. or it is not required. since when i place TYPE=BOND, under tail -f /var/log/messages, it shows unknown or invalid option.

kindly suggest

Regards
parkar

Here's an (edited) example from a prod system
Code:
cat ifcfg-bond0

DEVICE=bond0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
IPADDR=1.2.3.4
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
GATEWAY=1.2.3.4
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=no
IPV6INIT=no
PEERDNS=yes

cat ifcfg-eth0
# Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM5706 Gigabit Ethernet
DEVICE=eth0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
HWADDR=11:22::33:44:55:66
MASTER=bond0
SLAVE=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
