Thanks for taking a look...
I have a very old active OS, unfortunatly due to supplier issues I cannot upgrade to a newer version but I need to get Interface bonding active.
The OS is OpenSUSE 10.2 and added the following lines to /etc/modprobe.conf.local:
alias bond0 bonding options bond0 miimon=100 mode=4 lacp_rate=1
and created a new file in /etc/sysconfig/network called ifcfg-bond0 with:
DEVICE=bond0 STARTMODE='onboot' BONDING_MASTER='yes' BONDING_SLAVE_1=eth0 BONDING_SLAVE_2=eth1 USERCONTROL='no' IPADDR=172.23.4.137/23 NETWORK=172.23.4.0 BROADCAST=172.23.5.255 GATEWAY=172.23.4.254 DNS1=22.214.171.124 DNS2=126.96.36.199
On the ifcfg files of the physical interfaces:
DEVICE=eth0 STARTMODE=auto BOOTPROTO=none USERCONTROL=no MASTER=bond0
for eth1 the same except the DEVICE name ofcourse.
The bond0 interface is brought up, but the HW address is 00:00:00:00:00:00 and the txqueuelen is also 0 No default gateway is set and when trying to do a ping or anything the error is: Network is unreachable
I tried several other options that work perfectly on CentOS or Ferdora (all newer OSes) but not on this old OpenSUSE 10.2 OS.
Anyone an idea?
