I would suggest creating a non-vlan ovirtmgmt network (for management) on a
bond (that has nic1 and nic2 as slaves).
When that works out, you can add another VM network with a VLAN set on the
same bond.
On the switch you will need to define a trunk with the VM network VLANID
and a default access that corresponds to the management network.
