After adding a new "interface" to the /etc/sysconfig/ifcfg-foobar:

BOOTPROTO='static'
BROADCAST=''
ETHTOOL_OPTIONS=''
IPADDR='1.2.3.4/24'
MTU='9000'
NETWORK=''
REMOTE_IPADDR=''
STARTMODE='auto'
USERCONTROL='no'
VLAN_ID='50'
ETHERDEVICE='bond0'

What is the proper method to bring this new interface up?

/etc/init.d/networking restart

just killed my SSH session and had to reboot the server. Came in via another interface that was using bond0. Or the problem was that I wasn't running the /etc/init.d/networking restart command in a screen/tmux session on the server?

Using SLES 11.4

Restart networking is not good idea. You can lose your remote control.

Use ifenslave tool to add slaves to master bond0. Don't forget to load bonding module.

$ modprobe bonding
