Recreate your ifcfg file and use it to run ifdown on the bond. Now you can reconfigure the separate links again.

You'll need console access as your network will go down while you're doing this.

mean that when I configure Network bonding the config files lives here in that path?

Second question why you don't implement Network Teaming as it is a user space and you can kill it without interrupting your kernel ?

Many thanks in Advance

Here's what needs to be done:
1. Stop the network and NetworkManager(if running)
2. Remove the bonding configuration from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
3. Unload the bonding module:
# modprobe -r bonding
4. Create a new configuration file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ for the NIC/vNIC
5. Start the network service

Let me know if it resolves the issue.
