Description of problem:
[CockPit] - The default bonding mode should be safe defaults - mode 4 - Dynamic link aggregation(802.3ad) or mode 1 - active-backup.
The default bond mode in cockpit is a Round-robin and this should be changed, cause it's not a safe default bonding mode. It can cause to issues, lead to problems with VM networks(add host will fail in rhev-m), problems with hosted-engine setup and this is defiantly not the most used bonding mode.
The default bonding mode should be mode 4(the default in rhev-m) or active-backup(default in rhev-h).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create bond in cockpit
Default bond mode is round-robin.
Add host failed in rhev-m(ovirtmgmt is a VM network and can't be configured over a bond mode 0)
The default bonding mode should be a safe one - mode 4 or mode 1.
Sounds like a good reason to change this. I believe the initial choice was rather arbitrary.
Btw - I'd go with active-backup, this is the safest approach working with all switches etc.
802.3ad requires switch support.
The initial list order probably came from this order:
If active-backup is a safer choice I'll trust your word on it.
Another reason might have been that round-robin gives both load balancing and fault tolerance, and that kind of gave you a good outcome if you wasn't super good at what all the modes does.
But we do not want the defaults to result in something that just breaks setups, so I'm good at switching to active-backup.
