[Xen-users] Xen with NIC Bonding on Debian Etch ?
I am trying to get bonding work on a debian etch system. I searched
already in the mailing list but unfortunately I couldnt find a proper
solution. This is what i did so far.
- Installed Debian Etch on my server
- Installed the following packages for using Xen from the Debian repository:
- Setup bonding like this:
alias bond0 bonding
options bond0 mode=6 miimon=50
auto eth0 eth1
iface bond0 inet static
up /sbin/ifenslave bond0 eth0
down /sbin/ifenslave -d bond0 eth0
Everything is working fine so far. To get bonding (kind of) working with
xen I read the following howto:
I took the posted script and saved is as
If I run the script the according devices are created.
So far so good.
The next I created a domU. My setup is quit simple:
kernel = '/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-5-xen-686'
ramdisk = '/boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-5-xen-686'
memory = '256'
root = '/dev/sda1 ro'
name = 'vm_mydomU'
vif=[ 'ip=10.3.4.3' ]
If I start the domU there are no error-messages at all. The connection
works for a (very) short while. For example if I send a ping to a random
host (internal or external), the connection works for around 5 or 6
ICMP-message-replies. Then the connection brakes down. Kind of the same
problem was already described on the list in the following post:
Unfortunately nobody answered. :-/
I hope someone got bonding to work with xen and could describe me what I
am doing wrong.
Would be glad to get some help.
