Good Afternoon,

I am trying to setup nic bonding on SUSE Linux 10.2 w/OES2 sp1 to use lacp (802.3ad) and connect to a channel group and lacp on a Cisco Catalyst 4500 or 3750 switch.

The only way I have been able to configure it to work is using NO port-channel group on the switch and using "balance-rr" on the Linux server.

Does anyone have any information on how to make this work correctly ?

Also, how do I verify the nic configuration and i/o performance of the nic's at the terminal command line ?

Thank you,
