Hi ,

I need to add a secondary IP on the linux server but here is what the bond file ifcfg-bond0
 has :
DEVICE=bond0
BONDING_OPTS="mode=1 miimon=100 downdelay=200 updelay=200"
IPADDR=10.58.20.81
NETWORK=10.58.20.0
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
BROADCAST=10.58.20.255
IPV6INIT=yes
IPV6_AUTOCONF=yes
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
USERCTL=no

the eth0 and eth1 looki like this :

#Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM5709 Gigabit Ethernet
DEVICE=eth0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
USERCTL=no
MASTER=bond0
SLAVE=yes
ETHTOOL_OPTS="speed 1000 duplex full"


Any ideas how to add the secondary IP ? I suspect it has to be added to the bond file.

Oh , btw, i am  talking about RHEL here..

thanks.

You need to create further bond0:0...n interfaces, with the additional addresses assigned to them. So copy ifcfg-bond0 to ifcfg-bond0:0 and change the IP address.
