I'm trying to trunk two network cards together. I have three network cards in this server; eth0 is onboard, and eth1/eth2 is meant to be trunked. I have a test lab setup at the moment with almost an identical setup on a computer as the server has.
I found a website explaining how to do this and for the most part it makes sense but theres still a few unanswered questions. Here's a link: http://emcken.dk/weblog/archives/274-trunk-port-in-vmware-used-by-ubuntu-server-hardy.html
I followed this and here's what my config file looks like:
iface eth1.2 inet static
My question is how does the computer know that I would like to trunk eth1 & eth2 and leave eth0 out of it?
