DomUs Are Failing To Communicate to External Networks Through Oracle SDN (Xsigo)PVI Interface

(Doc ID 2272616.1)

Last updated on JUNE 23, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.3.1 and later
Linux x86-64


When using Oracle SDN (Xsigo) PVI interfaces as bonding devices for Virtual Machine(VM) networks (bridge), only with bonding mode 1 the VMs attached to that networks can reach out to gateway.

Using other bonding mode, only VMs guests running on the same Oracle VM Server using the same bridge networks can communicate with each other.

Below is the scenario of the issue:

bond2 = pvi + pviB
    BONDING_OPTS="mode=6 miimon=250 use_carrier=1 updelay=500 downdelay=500" 

# brctl show
10cf0454c5 8000.00139780107c no bond2 >>>>>>>>>> problematic network
