Oracle VM Server x86: How to get a redundant network for the heartbeat (part 2)

A while ago i played around with Oracle VM Manager
I was wondering, if i can setup a redundant network for the heartbeat on my virtualbox playground. My question was: Can i add an additional network and stripe the heartbeat over both networks or do i have to configure 2 network interfaces and use bonding.

A few day ago i tried to stripe the "Heartbeat Network" over 2 networkss, but this failed: Oracle VM Server x86: How to get a redundant network for the heartbeat

Now i tried to configure bonding for the "Heartbeat Network":
First step is to navigate to "Server and VMs" and change to the perspective "Bond Ports":

Select the bond0 port and add eth1:

 Then click ok and after that make a check via perpective "Ethernet ports":

That was easy.

Conclusion: The heartbeat inside OVM is implemented, that it can only work on the same subnet. It is not possible to use two different subnets for the heartbeat.
