How to Create a bonding interface
To create a bonding interface on SKUDONET ADC:
- Go to the NIC > Bonding section.
- Click the Create bonding button.
- Enter the Name that easily identifies the bonding interface.
- Select a Mode you’d like to use for this interface. The available modes include:
- Round-robin policy: Sequential packet transmission across slave interfaces.
- Active-backup policy: Single active slave interface; failover upon failure.
- XOR policy: Traffic distribution based on source and destination MAC addresses.
- Broadcast policy: Traffic transmission on all slave interfaces simultaneously.
- IEEE 802.3ad LACP: Aggregation groups based on speed and duplex settings, with all active slave interfaces transmitting traffic.
- Adaptive transmit load balancing: Traffic distribution based on current slave interface load.
- Select the Slave interface from the provided list.
- Click Apply to create the bonding interface.
- To restore an interface’s MAC address, you must delete the bonding interface that is using it. The bonding driver will then restore the interface’s original MAC address.
- The bonding interface’s MAC address is taken from its first member interface.
- An interface can only be part of one bonding interface.
- Once an interface is part of a bonding interface, it will be locked.
- The bonding mode cannot be changed after the bonding interface is created. However, member interfaces can be added or removed from the bonding interface as needed.
