Adapter bonding on Linux

Well, today I had a rather weird error. I was testing the adapter bonding on one of the boxen designated as Tivoli Storage Manager Server, when I noticed that the bonding wasn’t working as expected when simulating an error (that is unplugging one of the TP cables for the bond).

Now, the bond had “mode=6 miimon=100” as options. After running “linux bond debug” through Google (which turned up nothing useful, besides one document on the Oracle Wiki about IOS/Linux adapter teaming), I figured “Hey, just lets test switching the arguments.” And guess what ?

Afterwards, it just works when you unplug one of the cables of the bond, while it didn’t work before … *shrug*
