Please use the proper component when duplicating the bug as I think this will again be a problem of netcf.  I'm changing the component, feel free to change it back in case you've got ani information to support that change.

Actually the BZ that was cloned was against virt-manager; it is about virt-manager's response to the error, rather than the error itself.

The bug filed against libvirt (then moved to the upstream libvirt tracker) was Bug 786696. Unfortunately, moving it to the upstream tracker removes it from the immediate radar, making it essentially invisible.

So, either the wrong BZ was cloned to RHEL7 (i.e. this should have been a clone of Bug 786696) in which case netcf would be the correct component, or this BZ really should be assigned to virt-manager.

(In reply to Laine Stump from comment #3)
Actually the UI is disabled because the error dialog is modal.  When the dialog is closed, virt-manager operates normally.  Unfortunately, there is no way to virt-manager to react anyhow differently; when call to a libvirt function fails with an error, we just show it to the user.

Comment 5 Laine Stump 2014-08-13 21:25:29 UTC
This ended up being a problem in libvirt, which would insist on getting live status of a bond interface even when the interface was inactive. Since an inactive bond has no slaves, none would be reported in the returned XML, but libvirt's XML parser required a <bond> element, so would generate an error.

The details of the libvirt commit fixing the bug are in Bug 878394, and this is a duplicate of that bug.
