Description David Kostal 2007-07-30 07:25:46 UTC
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):

How reproducible:

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

Actual results:
bond0 and eth3 are up, eth0 and eth1 are down.

Expected results:
All bond0, eth0, eth1 and eth2 should be up.

Additional info:
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.
