Description

Description of problem:

When creating a new host (GUI):
Hosts > New Host > Interfaces > + Add Interface > Type...
Pull-down menu currently does not include "Teaming" as an option, only "Bond".

Network Teaming is a new option in RHEL7 [1] and customers would like to leverage this option when provisioning physical hosts.

This option would also need to be added to hammer. Current available option is Bond:

hammer host create [...]
   --interface="identifier=bond0, \
               ip=1.2.3.4, \
               type=Nic::Bond, \

And add it to the kickstart_networking_setup snippet, under Hosts > Provisioning Templates.

Attaching a sample kickstart snippet found in the "Foreman Users" Google Group that was sent to mhulan.
(the attachment is in the linked BZ)

Hate to bump this, but its been 2 years and Teamd is the recommended bonding/teaming method in RHEL ect. So would be great for me to be able to make use of this on my foreman managed nodes, Like I do my other nodes.

Cheers.
