Description Ivan Stoykov 2005-10-14 05:09:45 EDT
Description of problem:
After update of iputils bonding interface can't enslave ethernet interfaces.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 kernel - 2.4.21-32.0.1.EL
 Platform - Dell PowerEdge 2850 
 ethernet driver - e1000
 regarding to ERRATA RHBA-2005:624 update from iputils-20020927-11.30.1 to

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install clean RHEL3-U5
2.Prepare eth0 and eth1 as SLAVE devices for bond0
3.Try new configuration
4.Update to iputils-20020927-11.30.2
5.service network stop 
6.modprobe -r e1000;modprobe -r bonding
7.service network start
8.( 5-7 can be replaced with simple reboot :)

Actual results:
bond0 doesn't enslave eth0 and eth1. ifconfig shows HWaddr 00:00:00:00:00:00 for

Expected results:
 Interface bond0 to be up and its HWaddr to be the MAC address of 1st enslaved

Additional info:
 Problem stops with rollback to iputils-20020927-11.30.1.
 Interfcae bond0 is used as "master" interface for 2 VLANs
 Because of production state of server and short time for resolving of problem I
can't reproduce situation now and send kernel and userspace error messages, sorry!

I can confirm this version of iputils fixes the bonding/vlan issue.

My setup:
2 x intel e1000
1 x bonding bond0
2 x vlan interfaces bond0.175/bond0.250

Both iputils-20020927-11.30.1 & iputils-20020927-11.30.3 work,
iputils-20020927-11.30.2.i386.rpm doesn't.

You mention next update, is that the periodic update or is it expected as errate
in between?

It seams it is resolved already , at least - after RHBA-2006:0029
