    I am running RedHat Enterprise 5.7, what I am trying to accomplish is to create a 2GB link to each of our switches and then use a 3rd bond interface to do active-standby of the bond0 and bond1.

    I found this article on how to do this on Ubuntu:
    http://www.shermann.name/2011/02/ubuntu-1004-lts-portchannel-bonds.html

    However it didn't work so well under RHEL.

    bond0
    interface; eth0 ; 1Gbps
    interface; eth1 ; 1Gbps

    bond1
    interface; eth2; 1Gbps
    interface; eth3; 1Gpbs

    bond2
      - members would be bond0, and bond1

    Anyone can please help me on this would greatly be appreciated!!!!
