Description Simon Matter 2004-10-22 13:01:01 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001

Description of problem:
Setting ETHTOOL_OPTS in bonded interfaces doesn't work. Neither
setting it in ifcfg-bond0 nor in ifcfg-ethX works.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a ETHTOOL_OPTS="someting" line to ifcfg-ethX
2. ifup bond0
3. check with ethtool -s ethX

Actual Results:  The interface hasn't been configured with the
ETHTOOL_OPTS parameters.

Expected Results:  The interface should have been configured with the
ETHTOOL_OPTS parameters.

Additional info:

This works in a standalone interface definition ifcfg-ethX without the
bonding. Looks like seomthing is missing in /sbin/ifup.

Sorry, step 3 should be ethtool ethX
