Hi folks, I'm having an issue I could use some help with. My interface setup is several physical interfaces bonded, and then vlans on the bond, and then 1 bridge per vlan interface.
eth1 + eth2 = bond0
br0 contains bond0.10
br1 contains bond0.20
This has worked well for me for years, but I recently got a new piece of hardware and made a new build for it, and now when it is powering on there seems to be a race condition, where if the bond is not up in time, none of the bridges come up either.
This can be reproduced by restarting the bond interface in luci, all the the bridges go down and stop working until I restart them all.
My potential solution is to use hotplug.d to write a script where if bond0 is action up, then loop through the bridges and cycle them.
Was curious if anyone else has seen this and if there is a more elegant solution. I noticed the "force link" option on the interfaces and was unsure if it could be related. I wasn't clear on what it did from the documentation.
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
