How to create nic channel bonding in redhat/centos/fedora linux.

Step 1: Creating Bonding Channel


As a root, create a new file name bonding.conf in the /etc/modprobe.d/ directory.
#cd  /etc/modprobe.d/
#vim bonding.conf

alias bond0 bonding
options bond0 mode=1 miimon=100

Save & exit

For each configured channel bonding interface, there must be a corresponding entry in your new /etc/modprobe.d/bonding.conf file.

Step 2: Creating Channle Bonding Interface
# vim /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-bond0
DEVICE=bond0
IPADDR=192.168.1.8
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
USERCTL=no

Step 3: Configuring Channel Bonding Interface
For eth0

# vim /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
USERCTL=no
ONBOOT=yes
MASTER=bond0
SLAVE=yes
BOOTPROTO=none

For eth1

# vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1
DEVICE=eth1
USERCTL=no
ONBOOT=yes
MASTER=bond0
SLAVE=yes
BOOTPROTO=none


Step 4: Restarting Network Service

Restart the network service and see the output of ifconfig.

# service network restart
[root@amir network-scripts]# ifconfig
