View Full Version : [SOLVED] Server 12.04 - NIC Bonding - Can't access server

August 25th, 2012, 12:56 AM
[SOLVED] - Apparently the 100MB link was the problem, due to sloppy punch work on the patch panel. Too bad I only have myself to blame for that. :-)

Ok, a fair n00b here, especially on the Server side of Linux.

I've bonded 5 NICs for LACP link aggregation based on this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBonding

Everything looks OK (except one of the ports on the switch is showing a 100MB link on one of the nics... in case that's important)

The problem I'm having is that I can no longer access webmin or any of the existing samba shares from a windows machine, nor can I ping the server.

ifconfig looks good, the switch shows all of the links as up, so I'm not sure where to go from here.

Any help will be much appreciated.
