    OEL 6.3 over OVM 3.1.1 no network.

    juan.araya
      Hi,

      I have two servers with Oracle VM 3.1.1 installed with six ethernet ports each.

      In everyone i have three bonds created: Bond0 (eth0, eth1 192.168.0.10) for admin purposes, Bond1 (eth2, eth3 192.168.0.20) for VM networking, and Bond2 (eth4, eth5 10.0.11.10) for interconnect because i want to install a RAC. All the bonds are in active-backup mode. All bonds are up and i can access the servers and make pings through them.

      Then i created two VM in PVM. I can do the network boot and do the install without problems. Then i configure the eth0 (depending on Bond1) correctly and start the network services without problem but it simply doesn't work.

      I cannot ping to the outside or from de outside ping to the vm.

      Any idea about this problem? I compared this configuration with other server that works (3 network cards, 3 one interface bonds) and all seems normal.

      When i see the alert log i can see that the ivf interfaces changes state between forwarding, disabled and promiscuous very quickly when i power on a VM.
