XenServer – Management NIC bonding problem

Posted on November 26th, 2009

Have noticed this rather annoying bug with XenServer 5.5


If a pool of servers is created, and NIC 0+1 is bonded with the management interface running on this bonded network.

All configuration steps were done from XenCenter


A new XenServer is added to the pool, the NICs are un-bonded before adding it to the pool (but the same problem exists even if they are bonded)

The new XenServer is added to the pool and it picks up the pool network configuration however the Bond0+1network shows as unknown rather than connected.


Remove the Bond0+1 network from the pool (which obviously affects all servers)

Create the bond 0+1 again

Now this bond shows as connected on all XenServers.

how annoying.
