Description of problem:
If the system has both bond and native (eth) network interfaces configured, then
after the system boot all bonding slaves are down.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure bond0 with at least one slave (eg. eth0 and eth1). Configure
(another) ethernet interface (eg. etth2).
2. boot the system
bond0 and eth3 are up, eth0 and eth1 are down.
All bond0, eth0, eth1 and eth2 should be up.
In the ifup-eth script there is a section which shuts down the "slave"
interfaces. Commenting this command causes everything to start up normally.
Patch is included, although I'm not sure whether it's the best place to fix.

I apologize for the extremely awful response time here.
Does this persist with current RHEL 5 updates? There have been various updates to bonding support in the interim. Also, your configuration might help.
Closing due to no response, apologies.
