Hello,

I have a (working) OVS config with 1 bridge + 3 VLANs:
Code:
source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto enp1s0f1
iface enp1s0f1 inet manual

auto eno1
iface eno1 inet manual
        ovs_type OVSPort
        ovs_bridge vmbr0

auto enp1s0f0
iface enp1s0f0 inet manual
        ovs_type OVSPort
        ovs_bridge vmbr1
        ovs_options tag=1 trunks=10,100 vlan_mode=native-untagged

auto vlan1
iface vlan1 inet static
        address 192.168.1.14/24
        gateway 192.168.1.1
        ovs_type OVSIntPort
        ovs_bridge vmbr1
        ovs_options tag=1
        ovs_extra set interface ${IFACE} external-ids:iface-id=$(hostname -s)-${IFACE}-vif
#LAN

auto vlan10
iface vlan10 inet static
        address 10.0.0.253/24
        ovs_type OVSIntPort
        ovs_bridge vmbr1
        ovs_options tag=10
        ovs_extra set interface ${IFACE} external-ids:iface-id=$(hostname -s)-${IFACE}-vif
#DMZ

auto vlan100
iface vlan100 inet static
        address 192.168.100.253/24
        ovs_type OVSIntPort
        ovs_bridge vmbr1
        ovs_options tag=100
        ovs_extra set interface ${IFACE} external-ids:iface-id=$(hostname -s)-${IFACE}-vif
#VM-Network

auto vmbr1
iface vmbr1 inet manual
        ovs_type OVSBridge
        ovs_ports enp1s0f0 vlan1 vlan10 vlan100

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet manual
        address 192.168.0.14/28
        ovs_type OVSBridge
#Mgmt-Network

Now I want to enhance this OVS config with a bond 802.3ad using interface enp1s0f1.
This means a bond using enp1s0f0 and enp1s0f1 that will be part of the vmbr1 bridge.

I was checking the related wiki page, but I'm not sure how to configure the interfaces incl. vlan.
And what must be added if mtu=9000 should be included?

Please advise for the correct configuration.

THX

auto bond0
iface bond0 inet manual
ovs_bonds enp3s0f0 enp3s0f1
ovs_type OVSBond
ovs_bridge vmbr1
ovs_options lacp=active bond_mode=balance-tcp

auto vlan4000
iface vlan4000 inet static
address 192.168.100.xxx/24
ovs_type bond0
ovs_bridge vmbr1
ovs_options tag=4000
ovs_extra set interface ${IFACE} external-ids:iface-id=$(hostname -s)-${IFACE}-vif

uto vmbr1
iface vmbr1 inet manual
ovs_type OVSBridge
ovs_ports vlan4000

Good link for that

EDIT
NOTE: Open vSwitch does not currently allow a bond to participate in RSTP.
