Bonded NIC's did not come up at boot?
I have a lenny system. My goal is to have two interfaces, 1 NIC active
and 1 NIC in standby on a second switch, so this host will have switch
& port fault tolerance.
I found and followed this guide:
and all seemed to be working correctly after restarting networking.
After reboot and issuing ifconfig, only the lo interface was listed.
Issuing "ifup bond0" brought up the bonded interface so I edited
/etc/network/interfaces and changed
auto lo bond0
and the bonded interface now activates at boot time.
My question is, should I have needed to add bond0 to the auto line or
is there some other proper Debian-way I should adjust elsewhere?
