Description Fabian Deutsch 2016-04-26 12:39:31 UTC
Description of problem:
NICs can be configured to be not managed by NM by adding NM_CONTROLLED=no to the ifcfg-* file.
Those NICs will appear as "unmanaged" in "nmcli d".

Cockpit should prevent that a user can edit these NICs.

Comment 4 Stef Walter 2016-05-25 06:52:54 UTC
Marius, this is an important bug for RHEV-H use of Cockpit. Did you already have a patch for making this work?

Comment 5 Stef Walter 2016-06-23 13:28:06 UTC
Haven't heard from Marius. I think I have a patch.

Comment 7 Stef Walter 2016-06-24 08:15:24 UTC
Will be included in Cockpit upstream 0.112, and included in RHEL during the next update. I'm not updating FixedInVersion or setting MODIFIED until we know that it's inlcuded in a RHEL release.
