I was running 0.69b2.3631 using two Intel Gigabit LANs simultaneously with no problems, except that one interface (em1) sat essentially idle. I upgraded to 0.69b3.3778 for the LAGG interface. I had trouble setting up the LAGG, but finally got it up. I found it will not successfully initiate when polling is enabled on either or both interfaces.
However I recently discovered that the LAGG interface will not survive a reboot. In working with the problem, I find b3.3778 will not initiate an interface if more than one interface is connected at boot.
If two interfaces are connected at boot, both show on the console as "UP". When I select "1) Assign Interfaces", both (em0, em1) show as "UP". I can select em0 as LAN and em1 as Opt1, but when I click "OK" FN tries to initiated the interfaces without allowing me to set them up first. There is no error message at this point, but the interfaces do not successfully initiate. FN does not lock up and the console options still function.
When I select "2) Set LAN IP addresses", the following error messages come up:
Warning: require_once (interfaces.inc): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /etc/rc.initial.setlanip on line 39
Fatal error: require_once (): Failed opening required 'interfaces.inc' (include_path='.:/etc/inc:/usr/local/www') in /etc/rc.initial.setlanip on line 39
The same happens when Lagg is configured in the webgui and then rebooted. All three show on the console as em0, em1, lagg0, but when I try to "Asssign interfaces" or "Set LAN IP addresses" I get the same errors.
Once this happens no interface will initiate even after a reboot.
If I select "4) Reset to factory defaults" and reboot with only one interface connected, it will come up as em0 and initiate automatically and show the NAS webgui address as 192.168.1.250. However, if I restore my settings and reboot again, the same problem reoccurs.
Previous versions would not automatically initiate an interface. One had to manually assign the interfaces and then set the LAN IP addresses for each, then initiate. No http network connection was available until after the manual setup was done. FN would initiate multiple NICs this way. Under b3, apparently initiation of the interface is set in the boot process, so that one automatically comes up with a webgui connection, however it will not initiate multiple interfaces and will not initiate a LAGG interface.
