Plase wait for NetworkManager 0.9.8 before considering this feature fully working. I have prepared a feature page for this.
I haven't yet tested this and the following configuration is reported to be broken through the mailing list. But, eventually, this page will include a working and tested configuration.
Bridge devices can be easily adding using the
ip command. This way is suitable for testing.
name=my-bridge ip link add $name type bridge
Using NetworkManager (native configuration)
TODO: Test the configuration.
[connection] id=... uuid=... type=bond [bond] interface-name=bond0
[connection] id=... uuid=... master=bond0 slave-type=bond
Using NetworkManager (ifcfg-rh configuration plugin)
TODO: Fix and simplify the following configuration.
# cat ifcfg-bond0 DEVICE=bond0 BOOTPROTO=dhcp ONBOOT=yes NM_CONTROLLED="yes" BONDING_MASTER="yes" BONDING_OPTS="miimon=50 mode=balance-tlb" # cat ifcfg-em3 BOOTPROTO="none" DEVICE="em3" ONBOOT="yes" MASTER="bond0" SLAVE="yes" TYPE=Ethernet NM_CONTROLLED="yes"
