Yes Andrei, if you are using Advanced Networking you can leave the default Xenserver install
without running the Optional commands.

Okay, so what if I am using Advanced Networking? 

I guess I can leave the default xenserver install without running the Optional commands.

I believe OVS is only required for security groups in a basic network. 

I am using a shared network without security groups in a basic zone with OVS. No issues over
the last 9 months. With a bridge backend you are limited to 2 NICs in a bond on the XenCenter
UI, but with OVS you can use 4 NICs.
