Hi All,

I need to make bonding"teaming" on CUCM 6.1 based on Linux based.

How I can do it?

How I can show bonding status?

I know from CLI i can type "show network failover".Can i show it from OS administration web page?

The command to enable it is set network failover enable

However the two NICs will work in active/standby mode. Having both NICs active as an EtherChannel is not supported.

It is not possible to view or enable the setting from the web page.

As James said, the NIC failover is for redundancy/failover (active/passive) only.  It is NOT NIC teaming which is a completely different concept.  It can only be enabled via CLI.

Actuaslly i am little confused.

When I run "show network failover" i got bonding correct.

BUT when i go to OS administration------>show------->network I got nothing related to bonding.

Is that normal?

How can i display my bonding settings from GUI also?

Youssef, there isn't really anything to be confused about my friend. The network failover commands are CLI-based only. You don't see the status from the GUI, this is normal. What you can see from GUI is not always equal to what you can see from CLI.
