Description

A bond makes the server-manager network page behave inconsistently.
Follow these steps to see the problem:
  1. use a machine with at least two ethernet interfaces
  2. create a bond with two slaves
  3. go to the dashboard
  4. you'd see a yellow todo saying:
     Assign role to network interface
    A role must be assigned to a new network card
    

    Also the Network page add an option to delete one of the slaves.
    And rebooting the server, the network reconfiguration triggers.

History

#1 Updated by Filippo Carletti almost 4 years ago

Note: the bug affects also version 6.6.

The problem is that the /usr/libexec/nethserver/eth-unmapped uses mac addresses, but all slaves have the same mac.

Original mac can be found in /proc/net/bonding/bondX:

# grep HW /proc/net/bonding/bond0
Permanent HW addr: 08:00:27:6a:67:ae
Permanent HW addr: 08:00:27:e9:86:08

Package in nethserver-testing:
  • nethserver-base-2.9.4-1.2.g1fb355d.ns6.noarch.rpm
Test case 1
  • Configure a bond, check the Dashboard display the wrong message
  • Update the package
  • Check the wrong message is gone
Test case 2
  • After test case 1
  • Reboot the machine
  • Check the system doesn't require network reconfiguration
Test case 3
  • On a Virtual Machine (VM), add a new ethernet and configure it with a orange or blue role
  • Shutdown the VM, change the mac address of the ethernet
  • After the boot, check the system requires network reconfiguration for the missing ethernet card
Test case 4
  • After test case 2
  • Shutdown the VM, change the mac address of a ethernet which is part of the bond
  • After the boot, check the system requires network reconfiguration for the missing ethernet card
  • You should ignore the message and be able to reconfigure the bond from the web interface
