/sbin/ifup fails for Type=Bonding and BRIDGE=br0
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:59:56 EDT
Description of problem:
IF bond type device is to be part of bridge device, the bond device is not
initializing, and therefore inoperative
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
configure bond device and make it part of bridge device
Steps to Reproduce:
the bond0 device is not initialized(slaves are not enslaved).
the bond0 device is not added to the br0 device (cause it's added prematurly -
before enslaving slaves)
neither bond0 nor br0 is properly configured by /sbin/ifup
/sbin/ifup:192 brctl addif statement fails becaouse no enslaved devices in bond0
/sbin/ifup:196 exit 0 statement makes bond0 to exit without enslaving slaves.
is there anybody out there ?
This does look like an issue. No patch available as of yet.
I also noticed, that even I initialize such config by hand, then during system
shutdown bridge device can't take itself down, as not all subdevices were shut down.
It's going to be 7 months on Xmas ;)

ifup patch to handle bondX devices
This hasn't been fixed in over a year, which is really lame for a so-called
Here's a 5 minutes patch. I'm sure you can do better.
It's over two years now! Wow, great speed fixing easy things! Surely RHEL gains
my trust here.
