Hi,

I install a new 4 Port GBit Server with CentOS 6.3 and I’d like to use nic bonding.

Searching for a good how to pinted to this page:

http://www.how2CentOS.com/CentOS-6-channel-bonding/

My question: Is this the current, good way to bond the 4 ports?

The other question: What should I set on the cisco switch for the Port-channel options?

As far as I understand for performance and redundancy I will use LACP
and balance-alb.

The switches are 6500 VSS so they should act as “one physical device” as required by LACP.

thanks for any suggestion and comments . G
