screenshot of g-c-c network - connections are missing

RHEL 7.2 Beta 1.0

When trying to add VLAN connection in gnome-control-center network or Anaconda installer, ie with nm-connection-editor --create --type=vlan, connections are not offered in the list of available parents. Which means it is not possible to create vlan over bond this way.

When adding the connection in nm-connection-editor, connections are available.

Comment 2 Radek Vykydal 2015-08-21 12:25:50 UTC
This issue is blocking Anaconda's bug 1112674.
Also it might be considered as duplicate of bug 1112672.

Comment 4 Jirka Klimes 2015-08-26 12:33:04 UTC
When creating a connection with "--create" (e.g. nm-connection-editor --create --type=vlan), the list of connection was not yet fetched and thus the connections didn't appear in "Parent interface" list. When editing an existing connection, the "Parent interface" is populated.

We need to wait for the connections even when creating a new connection.

A fix is available in upstream branch of network-manager-applet repository:

Looks good to me.

Comment 6 Jirka Klimes 2015-08-27 07:39:30 UTC
Committed to upstream nma-1-0:
8d5e165 editor: read all connections even when we create a new connection (rh #1255735)

(Upstream master branch does not have the problem, because it uses new libnm. And nm_client_get_connections() ensures that all connections are returned).
