http://serverfault.com – I currently have 2 gbit network interfaces bonded as bond0. Is it possible to also have the slave interfaces eth0 and eth1 assigned ip addresses and have traffic routed directly out either one like when they not enslaved in a bonding setup? I am using balance-alb bonding mode and the eth1 interface shares a mac address with bond0. ifconfig is as follows: bond0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1e:c9:b8:61:3e inet addr:x.x.x.x Bcast:x.x.x.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::21e:c9ff:feb8:613e/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MASTER MULTICAST MTU:150 (HowTos)
