bonded NICs default router does not get set

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

After configuring nic bonding on RHEL, and specifying the GATEWAY in /etc/syconfig/networking and then rebooting, the default router does not get set.

If you then run:

/etc/init.d/network restart

after the system has booted, everything is ok.
