Description Rafal Wijata 2006-05-26 10:18:25 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):

How reproducible:
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)
Actual results:
neither bond0 nor br0 is properly configured by /sbin/ifup

Expected results:
All OK

Additional info:
/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.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-07-12 09:54:57 EDT
This does look like an issue. No patch available as of yet.
Comment 3 Rafal Wijata 2006-07-20 04:25:14 EDT
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.

ifup patch to handle bondX devices

This hasn't been fixed in over a year, which is really lame for a so-called
"Enterprise-grade" distribution.

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.
