Description of problem:
[Default Route] - Add warning or notify the admin that the host has no default route.

As it was decided to close and not fix BZ 1476804 it is very possible that users will found them self in a situations they have no default route on the host.
If we not blocking to set a non-mgmt network with default route while not being attached to any host, we will end up without default route on the host. 

It is very important to have an indication about such case. Admin/user should be notified that the host/s have no default route.

I don't think it's high.
We could do it via an Ansible running in cron job and inject an event if needed.
Comment 2 Dan Kenigsberg 2017-09-20 18:37:46 EDT
I think that Burman is looking for for an exclamation mark next to host with no default route, not a periodic alert. I find periodic alert disturbing, as hosts with no gateway and no default route are perfectly usable and reasonable to have.
