ProLiant DL360 G6, RHEL 6, bond interface does a kernel panic when shut down

On a newly installed RHEL 6 server (ProLiant DL360 G6), a bond interface (eth0 + eth1) gives a kernel panic each time the interface is shutdown.

 

Additionnaly, a ping to a local address (same LAN) always gives the first frame to be a DUPlicate.

 

The two NICs are BCM5709.

 

- Is it a problem of the DL360 G6 firmware (latest BIOS installed)?

- Is the bonding module (RHEL 6) guilty?

 

/etc/modprobe.d/bonding.conf:

 

alias eth0 bnx2
alias eth1 bnx2
alias scsi_hostadapter cciss
alias scsi_hostadapter1 ata_piix
alias bond0 bonding
options bond0 mod=1 miimon=100

 

ifcfg-bond0

 

DEVICE=bond0
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
NETWORK=10.1.1.0
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
IPADDR=10.1.1.11
USERCTL=no
#
NM_CONTROLLED=no

 

 

Thank you,

Regards

Hi,

 

Check the /var/log/messages and depending on the error, you can troubleshoot.

Check the following links for more help.

It cannot be an issue with BIOS version, but it can be some configuration issue with Multiport NIC or its Drivers/Firmware or RHEL6 itself.

 

 

Thank You!
