Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 471997
bond module not in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Please reference bonding, not bond<N>
Last modified: 2016-06-17 17:13:50 EDT
Description of problem:
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/en-US/RHEL510/Deployment_Guide/s3-modules-bonding-directives.html references using the bond module.
This module does not exist on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.X
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/en-US/RHEL510/Deployment_Guide/s3-modules-bonding-directives.html as of Tue Nov 18 06:24:37 EST 2008
Please modify the line to mention the bonding not "bond" module.
Looking at the referenced URL, this appears to be fixed already
I think the confusion might arise from the following instruction found on the previous page:
Add the following line to /etc/modprobe.conf:
alias bond<N> bonding
Replace <N> with the interface number, such as 0. For each configured channel bonding interface, there must be a corresponding entry in /etc/modprobe.conf.
So it appears the line referenced is correct in the context of the previous page's procedure.
What I wrote above makes sense, but it appears that these bonding sections in the Deployment Guide need to be revised. This bug is now subsumed by bug 238660, so I am making this one a dupligcate.
