Last update: 19-11-2022


1. Acronis Cyber Infrastructure version is 3.5.3 or below and LACP (802.3ad) bonding mode is enabled.

2. During node boot the bond interface is down, networking service does not start properly.

3. Attempt to start the interface manually (# ifup <bond_interface_name>) fails with the following error message:

Device ... has different MAC than expected.


Issue in the product.


The issue has been fixed since ACI version 3.5.4-24.

More information

As a workaround it is possible to remove the "HWADDR" line from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-x and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-y files, where x and y are bond slave interfaces.
