I am installing Proxmox on an HP DL360p Gen9 with a 2 port 10G nic that has a trunked LACP config on the switch side and have the below as my /etc/network/interfaces file:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet manual

iface eth1 inet manual

auto bond0
iface bond0 inet manual
slaves eth0 eth1
bond-miimon 100
bond_mode 802.3ad
bond_rate 1

auto vlan1040
iface vlan1040 inet manual
vlan-raw-device bond0

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
bridge_ports vlan1040
bridge_stp off
bridge_fd 0

STP is not enabled ion my enviornment.

vmbr0 is listed with the correct IP in ifconfig but no packets are passing and when cat /proc/net/bonding/bond0 it shows the LACP rate as being slow instead of fast.

What am I doing wrong?

BTW, new to Debian
