Greetings all. This has been an ongoing issue for me for a few months, and I've
been trying to get an answer.
My server has two NICs, and I want to set up the following:
NICs (x2) -> bond (mode 5) -> Xen Bridge -> Doms
...however, trying to configure this doesn't seem to work: network-bridge
steals eth0 instead of bond0, which breaks the bond AND my networking. The
result is a "pbond0" interface with no IP, and occasionally a "peth0", also
with no IP. In either case neither eth0 (or 1) or bond0 exist and as such I
have no networking at all! If I boot without Xen the bond works fine, so I know
that's not the problem.
If I reconfigure zend-config.sxp to change netdev=bond0, I still have the same
issues, though the specific wording of the error (2 pages on a computer I can't
connect to, and before logon so I can't | less) is different. I've also tried
messing with the network-bridge script to no avail.
I've read both the manual and the wiki, and while the wiki makes mention of
using a bond, it doesn't show specifically what is required. I was wondering if
anyone else could shed some light on the issues. I'm willing to (attempt) to
write out those 2 pages of errors, if required, though I have a feeling this is
just a configuration issue.
I have a thread on LinuxQuestions about the issue. URL:
Thank you for your assistance.
