Bonding Interfaces in Linux

Written by Erica St. John on September 4, 2014 – 15:15

To create a bonded interface:

  • Create a file named ifcfg-bondN in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory, where N is number of the interface, such as 0.
  • Edit the contents of ifcfg-bondN to be similar to the configuration settings for an Ethernet interface except that DEVICE is set to bondN rather than ethn, for example:DEVICE=”bond0″
    IPADDR=192.168.1.121
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    NETWORK=192.168.1.0
    BROADCAST=192.168.1.255
    ONBOOT=yes
    BOOTPROTO=none
    USERCTL=no
    TYPE=Ethernet
    BONDING_OPTS=”bonding parameters separated by spaces”

Windows Vista Cannot Obtain IP Address

Written by Erica St. John on July 14, 2011 – 11:05

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928233/en-us

Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP Address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP servers

Consider the following scenario:

  • You connect a Windows Vista-based computer to a network.
  • A router or other device that is configured as a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is configured on the network.
  • The router or the other device does not support the DHCP BROADCAST flag.

In this scenario, Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address.
