Output of "cphaconf show_bond" command on VSX cluster shows the second slave as "Not available"
Symptoms
  • When you create a new bond in Gaia Clish with only two physical slaves on VSX cluster, the output of "cphaconf show_bond" command shows the second added slave as "Not available"

    Example:

    • [Expert@Member_1:0]# cphaconf show_bond bond0
      
      Bond name:      bond0
      Bond mode:      High Availability
      Bond status:    UP 
      Configured slave interfaces: 2
      In use slave interfaces:     2
      Required slave interfaces:   1
      
      Note: No backup slaves. Bond High Availability cannot perform failover.
      
      Slave name      | Status          | Link
      ----------------+-----------------+-------
      eth4            | Active          | Yes
      eth5            | Not Available   | Yes
      [Expert@Member_1:0]#
      
    • [Expert@Member_2:0]# cphaconf show_bond bond0
      
      Bond name:      bond0
      Bond mode:      High Availability
      Bond status:    UP 
      Configured slave interfaces: 2
      In use slave interfaces:     2
      Required slave interfaces:   1
      
      Note: No backup slaves. Bond High Availability cannot perform failover.
      
      Slave name      | Status          | Link
      ----------------+-----------------+-------
      eth5            | Active          | Yes
      eth4            | Not Available   | Yes
      [Expert@Member_2:0]#
      
Cause

The function that calculates whether the Bond interface is able to perform failover is called before the slave count of the bond interface is increased, making the bond incorrectly believe it has no slaves when the function is invoked.
