NIC teaming


Hi All,
I need to find out if I have NIC teaming in one of our servers. I checked the back of the server and it has two nic cards, both have the lights blinking.

Now I need to know how to check this from the cmd line. Also, I need to know if they are active/active or active/passive.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Run ifconfig and look for bondX interfaces.

Depending on your distro, you might be looking for this file in another path, but here's where the bond device configuration file is found in SuSE: /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-bond0

The actual filename should be the same, but it might be in a different directory. And this is the option you're looking for in that file:

Code:
BONDING_MODULE_OPTS='mode=active-backup miimon=100'
In this case, mine is active/passive.
