    This doesn’t seem to work, when the 2 links are up, bond0 will show the IP address of the first card. If I remove the cable, the logs indeed show eth1 being assigned as active, however it won’t get a new IP address therefore you can’t ping it.

    In your interfaces declaration you don’t specify what to do with eth0 and eth1 themselves.

    it is not necessary to load the kernel module, the system will load it as it sees bond* stanza in /etc/network/interfaces

    you should install ifenslave and no more ifenslave-2.6

    regards

    Outdated. Ifenslave isn’t even part of debian anymore.
