Applies to:Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software - Version 184.108.40.206.0 to 220.127.116.11.0
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.
