Interface selection screen sometimes unusable when provisioning VMWare hosts

This tends to happen more frequently when provisioning to our larger VMWare clusters.

After selecting the VMWare CR to deploy to on the 'Host' tab of 'New Hosts,' if you don't wait 1+ minute sometimes, when the user selects the 'Interfaces' tab, it becomes 'greyed' out which renders the screen useless since it puts the buttons in the background and won't allow the user to click anything. The only option at this point is to reload the entire page forcing the user to start over.

I have attached an image of when the screen becomes greyed out. I do not know if this is specific to VMWare or not since that is the only CR that we use.

I am able to reproduce with slow compute resource. To reproduce go to

1. go to new host form
2. select CR, it triggers a request to rerender some form parts, you should see the spinner
3. before the spinner disappears, go to interfaces tab and click edit button on primary interface so the modal window appears
4. wait until the spinner disappers


greyed screen

Expected result:

fields are loaded correctly according to selected CR
