    bonding is not the same as teaming

    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.

  3. pierre says:

    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

    Outdated.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