I have a PE1950 with DRAC5 which I recently moved to a remote data
centre. It's running Ubuntu 13.10 with both motherboard NICs bonded and
running at 1000Mbps full-duplex with auto-negotiation. The DRAC5 LAN is
configured for shared-failover mode.
I ran a little experiment, shutting down the bonded interface for twenty
seconds, to make sure I could still access the DRAC5; the result was
To be clear, while pinging the DRAC5's IP address from my workstation, I
# ifdown bond0; sleep 20; ifup bond0
All ping packets were lost during the twenty-second interval.
What have I done wrong?
Thanks in anticipation.
