trying to setup Vlan on bond.
Proxmox V5.3-11

My network setup is:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth1 inet manual
iface eth2 inet manual
iface eth3 inet manual
iface eth4 inet manual

auto bond0
iface bond0 inet manual
        slaves eth1 eth2 eth3 eth4
        bond_miimon 100
        bond_mode 802.3ad
        bond_xmit_hash_policy layer2+3

auto bond0.132
iface bond0.132 inet manual
        vlan-raw-device bond0

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet dhcp
        bridge_ports bond0
        bridge_stp on
        bridge_fd 0
        bridge_vlan_aware yes

The issue it seems is the same as before, when i got "rename" on ethernet interfaces now is the same on the new VLAN interface :
ip addr output:
rename8@bond0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN group default qlen 1000
link/ether 00:25:90:f5:64:c6 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

If i up the "rename8" inteface manually, it does go up, but still does not work correctly.

In the Proxmox GUI->Network is see that it does recognize the interface as bond0.132 , but "Active" = " No" which leads to believe that it tries to up this interface which internally is really " rename8" now.

To solve the eth interface rename issue I followed this advice which did solve the issue:

This is what I did (no other changes required)

root@pve:/etc/udev/rules.d# cat 10-network.rules
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", ATTR{address}=="00:25:90:4f:3c:68", NAME="eth0"
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", ATTR{address}=="00:25:90:4f:3c:69", NAME="eth1"
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", ATTR{address}=="00:25:90:4f:3c:6a", NAME="eth2"
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", ATTR{address}=="00:25:90:4f:3c:6b", NAME="eth3"

I tried the other options to get standard naming back, but nothing worked for me with the exception of above.
This worked for me as well, but after editing the file it was necessary to run the update-initramfs -u command so that they were recognized.

What could I do to remedy Bond Vlan being named incorrectly as "rename8@bond0" ?
