[ovirt-users] NetworkManager with oVirt version 4.2.0

I had these types of issues as well my first time around, and after a
failed engine install I haven't been able to get things cleaned up, so I
will have to start over. I created a bonded interface on the host before
the engine setup. but once I created my first VM and assigned bond0 to it,
the engine became inaccessible the moment the VM got an IP from the

What is the preferred way to setup bonded interfaces?  In Cockpit or nmcli
before hosted engine setup?  Or proceed with only one interface then add
the other in engine?

Is it possible, for example, to setup bonded interfaces with a static
management IP on vlan 50 to access the engine, and let the other VMs grab
DHCP IPs on vlan 10?

It looks like an old howto, we will need to update or remove it.

For the interfaces to be owned by oVirt, you will need to add the host to
So I would just configure everything up to the VLAN (slaves, bond, VLAN)
with NetworkManager prior to adding it to Engine. The bridge should be
created when you add the host.
(assuming the VLAN you mentioned is your management interface and its ip is
the one used by Engine)

No (for 4.1 and 4.2)

Do I need to manage the networking using (nmtui) NetworkManager?

You better use cockpit or nmcli to configure the node before you add it to
