Description Edward Haas 2016-11-27 12:40:20 UTC
Description of problem:
NM is not able to explicitly define a connection on a dummy device.
Products like RHV use dummy devices for functional tests and it will be helpful to keep on using these tests when NM becomes the primary network driver.

Comment 2 Beniamino Galvani 2017-02-22 20:15:09 UTC
Support for dummy connections has been merged upstream.
