Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 213953
The explaination contained the RHEL4 Reference Guide on how to setup channel bonding is inaccurate.
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:17:04 EDT
Description of problem:
In the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Reference Guide, section 8.2.3 states that
bonding is setup by adding the line:
alias bond<N> bonding
This is incorrect, it should instead tell the user to modify the file
/etc/modprobe.conf by adding the following line:
install bond0 /sbin/modprobe bonding -o bond0
This also needs to be changed in Section A.3.2
Any reference to editting /etc/modules.conf needs to be changed to editting
/etc/modprobe.conf with the line as shown above.
edited section "8.2.3. Channel Bonding Interfaces" and "A.3.2. The Channel
Bonding Module", committed to CVS.
