Only one bonding device bond0 possible
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:35 EDT
Description of problem:
I need two bonding devices bond0 and bond1. I followed the procedure described
in /usr/share/doc/iputils-20020927/README.bonding and made the following lines
alias bond0 bonding
alias bond1 bonding
options bond0 miimon=100
options bond1 -o bonding1 arp_interval=200 arp_ip_target=10.0.0.1
When I start the network I get the following messages:
Bringing up loopback interface: ip_tables: (C) 2000-2002 Netfilter core team
[ OK ]
Bringing up interface bond0: ip_tables: (C) 2000-2002 Netfilter core team
bonding: Warning: failed to get speed/duplex from eth2, speed forced to 100Mbps,
duplex forced to Full.
[ OK ]
Bringing up interface bond1: bonding device bond1 does not seem to be present,
And when I have a look at /proc/net/bonding there is only bond0 visible.
