Description

Cloned from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1456457
Description of problem:
When creating a VM that uses the VMware compute resource, the UI first lets you select the networks via the name that is seem in VMware, however this is the last time you will see the friendly name, from that point on it starts using the network ID. This is a) confusing and b) difficult to verify and its not easy to find what "network-91" is and that it is actually called "v5-Server-Management"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new VM that uses the VMware compute resource
2. Edit the network interface and select the interface by name
3. Submit to create the host
4. Edit the host and go back to the interface, now its switched to using the network-id and not the name and to most admins it loosk wrong

Actual results:
One the VM is created, its stops using the name and starts using the ID

Expected results:
It should continue to use the friendly network name and not switch to the network ID
