Kishan, please say if these are on separate physical networks.
It looks like the eth2 card is on a different physical network (read
'collision domain' or 'network segment').
In this cased you cannot bond it with the other cards.

For the other two cards, eth0 and eth1, can we ask what the purpose of
bonding would be - is it a failover to cope with the failure or one
