How do I setup a bonding device bond0 and enslave two real Ethernet (say eth0 and eth2) devices to it on Ubuntu Linux 140.04 or 16.04 LTS server? How can I create 802.3ad bonding mode (IEEE 802.3ad Dynamic link aggregation) on Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS server? You need to install and use a tool called ifenslave. It will attach and detach slave network devices to a bonding device. The Linux kernel comes with bonding driver which provides a method for aggregating multiple network interfaces into a single logical ???bonded??? interface. You need bonding to get higher data rates and as well as link failover.
