EthX don't become up during startup

In my envirnment with RedHat Linux the eth0 and arh1 are configured in bonding in bond0.

here the configuration:
# cat ifcfg-bond0
DEVICE=bond0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDR=10.130.15.22
NETMASK=255.255.255.192
GATEWAY=10.130.15.1
# cat ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=static
MASTER=bond0
SLAVE=yes
ETHTOOL_OPTS="autoneg off speed 100 duplex full"
# cat ifcfg-eth1
DEVICE=eth1
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=static
MASTER=bond0
SLAVE=yes
ETHTOOL_OPTS="autoneg off speed 100 duplex full"


When the operating system startup the eth0 and eth1 don't come up and I need to give the command:
ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig eth1 up
to make it working.

in boot.log i see:

An easy way is to write:
ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig eth1 up

in the file /etc/rc.local and restart

jgiordanoCommented:
did you put the bond parameters in the modprobe.conf?

also I like to put the mac addresses in
ifcfg-eth0
ifcfg-eth1

The correct solution was to delete al
ifcfg-eth0*
ifcfg-eth1*
files
there was some ifcfg-ethX.orig in the directory.
