Description Need Real Name 2003-07-02 12:40:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Current bonding configuration tool binary supplied under /sbin/ifenslave is 
incompatible and cannot be used in conjunction with bonding module supplied 
under the /lib/modules directory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Try to enslave when using one of the newer modes (4,5,6).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insmod bonding mode=4
2. ifconfig bond0 <ip-addr>
3. ifenslave bond0 eth0
Actual results:
enslave operation fails and nn error message appears in the syslog:
"bonding : Error : to use IEEE 802.ad Dynamic link aggregation mode, you must 
upgrade ifenslave. "

Expected results:
enslave succeeds with no errors

Additional info:
A new /sbin/ifenslave binary should be built 
from /usr/src/linux/Documentation/networking/ifenslave.c 

Also, a new /usr/share/doc/iputils-20020927/README.bonding should be created 
from /usr/src/linux/Documentation/networking/bonding.txt

ISSUE TRACKER 25883 opened as sev 1.
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-07-17 06:15:04 EDT
Once bug #98461 is fixed, /sbin/ifenslave needs to be created again to preserve 
backward comaptibility with old bonding versions.

Please note that this issue depends on issue #25885 (Bugzilla #98461). Although
Bugzilla #98457 is marked as closed, once issue #25885 (Bugzilla #98461) is
fixed, a new version of /sbin/ifneslave would have to be created and only then
it can be closed.

Status set to: Waiting on Tech
