Description Derek Schrock 2015-11-09 21:16:51 EST
Description of problem:
If you configure a bonded network device that is parsed by anaconda parse-kickstart and NetworkManager is uninstalled (%post or after reboot) or disabled the bonded device does not work.

How reproducible:
1) Kickstart a machine with network lines such that parse-kickstart reads
2) Uninstall NetworkManager or disable NetworkManager
3) restart
4) bonded network device does not work.

Reinstalling/reenabling NetworkingManager and a reboot will bring the bonded network device back.

Actual results:
bonding device no longer works if NetworkManager uninstalled or disabled after reboot 

Expected results:

bonded device to continue to work no matter the state (running/uninstalled/disabled) of NetworkManager.

NetworkManager is what we use for network configuration in RHEL7.  If you uninstall NetworkManager, it is entirely likely that network stuff will break, yes.  However it is then incumbent upon you to do the network configuration yourself.  We aren't going to ship code to configure networks two different ways - we've already got one that works.  Sorry.
