Re: How to correctly create multiple bonding interfaces in kernel 22.214.171.124

Matt, No, the switch is not playing a role here.I am using mode balance-alb ( 6 ) in bond0 for the switch and 802.3ad ( 4 ) in bond1 which is cross over connection between the 2 servers. The switch does support Link / Port / Ethernet / NIC Aggregation / Trunking / Channeling / Teaming (802.3ad). It is a Cisco Catalyst 2960G, by the way. After I configure the switch I will probably only use 802.3ad, as that is the standard. Also, it was working fine with kernel 2.6.26 in this very same environment.
So you are saying the way to go is to use the sysfs interface ( /sys ; those echo commands ), right?
I have already tried that a little bit, but I will try to put more time into that again.
Does anybody would be able to tell me the all the steps to create 2 bonding interfaces with different options using sysfs?

Matt,This OpenFiler 2.3, which based on rPath Linux, which I believe
a little the RedHat line. I do not think the Debian based commnds / mehtods work for this... Yes, I have been reading the kernel docs a lot, bonding.txt... I have been trying all those methods.I think I always ended with the stability issue: 10 s of working
and 10 s of time outs... I was mainly trying to use the full "install bond0 /sbin/modprobe" commands in modprobe.conf. By the way, I have 2 x e1000 (Intel Gigabit) and 2 x tg3 (NetXtreme). What else?
What type of switching gear are you connected to? Are you sure that is configured correctly? I would try factoring out the settings of your bond from the modprobe command to echo's to /sys/. Then you don't need to rm the module and reprobe it back in. -- Matt Zagrabelny - mzagrabe@xxxxxxxxx - (218) 726 8844 University of Minnesota Duluth Information Technology Systems & Services PGP key 4096R/42A00942 2009-12-16 Fingerprint: 5814 2CCE 2383 2991 83FF C899 07E2 BFA8 42A0 0942 He is not a fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. -Jim Elliot--
