you are doing a mix of probe and link based ipmp. if you work with a deprecated interface, you need another address above your interfaces to switch between the interfaces. with link based ipmp you won't need that.

try this:
root@machine01 # more /etc/hostname.e1000g0
btrcm1 group mnic up
root@machine01 # more /etc/hostname.e1000g2
group mnic up

hi DukeNuke2,

it's mean i have to edit the /etc/hostname.e1000g0 and /etc/hostname.e1000g2

root@machine01 # more /etc/hostname.e1000g0
btrcm1 group mnic up
root@machine01 # more /etc/hostname.e1000g2
group mnic up

if this are your files... yes!
