Does Clear linux natively support the use of the network team driver (and teamd utility) now?
I’ve been away from Clear Linux project for a bit, but I’m almost in a position to start again. I notice that it seems Clear has moved from native systemd management of hardware NICs, to Network Manager for management of bare metal NICs.
I was quickly playing around with a fresh server install a few days ago, and figured I would setup the network with two interfaces as a LACP 802.3ad LAG. I did this using the team option, rather than the linux bond, under NMTUI.
It all seemed to work from a config standpoint, but failed when I attempted to bring the interface up. Not sure if I screwed up somewhere, if NMTU/NMCLI supports team config fine, but something is missing from my Clear Kernel (nothing fancy, just a default Clear native kernel) or userspace to run it correctly (I know I didn’t have teamd available and with a 3 second look I couldn’t locate that with a swupd search either…)
The error was:
Could not activate connection: NetworkManager plugin for ‘team’ unavailable.
