    • from initscripts:
 Currently, team masters and slaves are supported 
 via ifup-Team* and ifdown-Team* scripts shipped in 
 teamd package. It uses somehow ugly workaround where
 user have to specify DEVIVETYPE to "Team" or "TeamPort". 
 This turned out to be non-optimal solution as this is 
 confusing users. Also it does not work when TYPE is set. 
 So fix this by adding the team support hooks directly 
 into initscripts. Now for team port, user needs only to set: 
 TEAM_MASTER="teamx" and for team master, user needs only to set: 
 TEAM_CONFIG="...whatever..."

initscripts support for bridge prio, aging

( maybe also NetworkManager supports these? ) When using network.servoce, interface definitions in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ for bridges can now include declarations for bridge priority and aging. Use these parameters:

 PRIO=<num>
 AGEING=<NUM>
  • where num is the number of seconds to keep a MAC address in the forwarding database after the last packet received from it. Usually does not need to be modified.
