Oracle VM 3: Primary Bonding Port Is Not Allowed to Be Changed (Doc ID 2423676.1)

Last updated on APRIL 15, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.2.1 and later
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Linux x86-64


 On Oracle VM Server, primary bonding port is configured as eth# and primary_reselect is 2 by default/automatically.

 For example, BONDING_OPTS= line in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-bond# shows:

BONDING_OPTS="mode=1 miimon=250 use_carrier=1 updelay=500 downdelay=500 primary_reselect=2 primary=eth0"

 They can not be changed by user, even via Oracle VM Manager WebUI.
