NIC/Link bonding/teaming/trunking/aggregation

I’m building my first Oracle RAC cluster this week. We have to do the SA type setup ourselves, so this was the first time I’ve been exposed to Link bonding. This is a process whereby two NICs are “bonded” together to appear as a single Link to improve throughput and provide fail-over. It was a good experience, and because I had two networks and 12 servers I got irritated and wrote a script. Here is the script if you’re interested.
