Linux NiC Bond Question



  • Hi,

    after you create linux nic bonding, do you disable the original nic adapters, so only the bond network adapter gets IP and has priority.

    Cause the only way I saw activity of my nm-bond interface was when I disabled the ens33 and ens34 from getting an IP, so only the bond has it.

    Or you keep all interfaces as is with the machine having 3 IPs, how then it will determine to use the bond IP and not others?

    I used rr or round robin



  • Correct, only the resulting virtual NIC gets an IP Address, the underlying NICs are now only part of the bond.

    I use only use the virtual NICs as well on Debian as well.
