5.7. Selecting Interfaces to Use as Ports for a Network Team

To view the available interfaces, issue the following command:
~]$ ip link show
1: lo:  <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP > mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: em1:  <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP > mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP mode DEFAULT qlen 1000
    link/ether 52:54:00:6a:02:8a brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
3: em2:  <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP > mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP mode DEFAULT qlen 1000
link/ether 52:54:00:9b:6d:2a brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
From the available interfaces, determine which are suitable for adding to your network team and then proceed to Section 5.8, “Selecting Network Team Configuration Methods”

Note

The Team developers prefer the term port rather than slave, however NetworkManager uses the term team-slave to refer to interfaces that make up a team.
