So you can't use a bonded port for both server management and cluster
communications, can you? You can configure an active-passive bonding and
then you can have many virtual interfaces on top of that, i.e: bond0:0,
bond0:1 and assign them the ip addesses you need.

You can connect them to the same switch (though you lost kind of
redundancy), or you can use two crossover cables and move the management IP
to the same ports you are using for the vm's.
