network interfaces are not started when bonding is configured with interfaces that are eariler.

Description of problem:
On my system I have the primary interface defined as eth2. I then
defined a bond using eth0 and eth1. When the network script runs it
fails to bring up eth2 but does bring up the bond0. The reason for
this is because in the network script we check to see if SLAVE=yes and
if so we continue and don't execute the ifup <if>. The reason SLAVE is
set to yes is from the ifcfg-eth settings which were evaluated
first. SLAVE is never cleared and thus we carry over the yes when it
tries to work on ifcfg-eth2.
My workaround was to simply add SLAVE=no into my ifcfg-eth2 file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an ifcfg-bond0 file to define a bond that uses eth0 and eth1
2. Create the appropriate ifcfg-eth0/0 files that set SLAVE=yes
3. Create an ifcfg-eth2 file to define an eth2 interface
4. Run /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart.
Actual Results: The eth2 interface is not up.
Expected Results: It should be.
Please try with a later release, although this issue might still be there.
I noticed the same problem on Red Hat Enterprise AS 3 Update 1.
Fixed, will be in 7.45-1.
What update number would that be ?? what does 7.45-1. mean please ??
sorry we have similar problem on this kernel ?? thanks
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 1)
There is a fix for this in the current errata beta RPMS for RHEL 3.
How would I go about obtaining this beta RPMS of EL3 to try ?
It's in the 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 3 for x86) Beta' channel.
(Replace, of course, with your variant (AS/ES/WS) and architecture).
My system has the channel registered but I get the following ?
up2date-nox --upgrade-to-release rhel-i386-es-3-extras-beta
Error communicating with server. The message was:
Your account does not have access to any channels matching
If you have a registration number, please register with it first at

OK .. beta release installed kernel updated .. problem persists ??
Can someone tell me why this is closed ? the Beta Release of RH AS
3.0 did not fix the bonding driver problem ??
With both the initscripts and kernel updates?
