 First thank you for your answer. Second it is not the
case you described. If I leave only one machine online
the bonding works very well. As soon as I bring online
the second machine the bonding starts going crazy. I
have the same configuration in both and it doesn't
matter which one I shutdown and which one I let
running. I also configured the bonding in
active-backup mode with ARP monitoring, and as the
documetation describe MII Status field in this case
has no relevance. "down" doesn't mean the carrier
signal is lost but the gateway cannot be reached like
before (doesn't answer anymore to arpinging)
 As a side note I tried the same configuration with
MII monitoring and it works perfectly. The downside of
it is that I cannot find out when connections beyond
the first switches are going down :(

 thanks again,
