We started testing some NIC bonding on our RHEL 5 VM and we will be testing on real hardware soon. The ultimate goal is to add this setup in our kickstart file.
We created these files for testing:
Added these lines to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and ifcfg-eth1:
in /etc/modprobe.conf we added these lines:
alias bond0 bonding
options bond0 miimon=100 mode=1
We just need to test on some physical servers and see how all this works now.
