Applies to:

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software - Version to
Linux x86-64


Following a switch reboot, or upon deletion and re-creation of a vNIC on a gateway switch, it is observed that the slave interface corresponding to the vNIC is not enslaved by the EoIB bond.

For instance, the following shows a healthy EoIB bond (bond1 in this example), with both slave interfaces enslaved and in UP status:

As can be observed in the output above, eth1290_2 is not enslaved by the EoIB bond upon re-creation.

Although the EoIB bond continues to function, a reboot of the other switch or deletion followed by re-creation of the other vNIC will result in a bond with no slaves, and hence no network connectivity over the bond.
