Sorry, I got that mixed up. I meant balance-tcp and was referring to https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/chapter-sysadmin.html#_linux_bond which says thatFor active-backup, should works fine too, I don't see any reason to not use it.
If you intend to run your cluster network on the bonding interfaces, then you have to use active-passive mode on the bonding interfaces, other modes are unsupported.
But during my limited testing it looks as if other bonding modes can work fine too.
(Perhaps getting a bit OT here.)
