I experience similar problem.
But I don't use interface bonding at all!
In my installation I use 8021Q.
(I use 2.6.18 also, but Debian, not FC. My Xen is 3.0.4, Debian
Here is my problem:
If I don't use xenbr0 (fig.1)
all works fine.
eth0 .---- eth0 VLAN1 [192.168.1.1]
============================<----- eth0.2 VLAN2 [192.168.2.1]
(tagged) .____ eth0.3 VLAN3 [192.168.3.1]
peth0 +------+ eth0 .---- eth0 VLAN1 [192.168.1.1]
============|xenbr0|========<----- eth0.2 VLAN2 [192.168.2.1]
(tagged) +------+ .____ eth0.3 VLAN3 [192.168.3.1]
But when I add the bridge (using netowrk-bridge script)
from external network
I can see untagged interface (192.168.1.1) only.
If I add ARP entry with IP and MAC of external
host that I want to ping to this host's ARP-table,
arp -s 192.168.2.2 00:11:22:33:44:55
I can ping external host.
I have looked to interfaces peth0, xenbr0, eth0 and its
subinterface eth0.2 using tcpdump
and marked that ARP-requests can be seen on all of the interfaces,
but ARP replys are on peth0 and xenbr0 only.
I have faced the problem on the only one of my Xen installations.
On the rest all works fine.
The question to all:
Have anybody seen similar problem and what can you advice me?
Can anybody say, may described problem be related to network card
that I use?
In particular to 8021Q hardware acceleration or something like that?
Axel, I understand that the problem is not like yours,
but may be it helps you to get a clue.
