I am able to bring up a bonded NIC in Centos4 without requiring to bring
up the bond0 with an ip address, but with CentOS-3 I must assign the NIC
an address or eth0 and eth1 will not slave.
I need to bring bond0 up without an ip address becuase I will be using
I can later manually do something like the following from a post network
script, but I am wondering why this is different in CentOS-4.
ifconfig bond0 0.0.0.0
ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
ifconfig eth1 0.0.0.0
if I change the ifcfg-bond0 to not have an ip address.
Then when I restart the network neither eth0 or eth1 are enslaved.
