Description of problem:
    In hyper-v guest, after doing modifications in network & Host Name settings in initial-setup of Server with GUI installation, clicking "Done" button does not finish "NETWORK & HOST NAME" setting. Initial-setup unable to proceed.

4. Click " NETWORK & HOST NAME", turn on eth0
5. Click "Done" to finish Network settings.

Actual results:
GUI does not finish Network settings after clicking "Done".

Comment 2 Qiaowei Zheng 2017-12-12 04:06:47 UTC
After entered "NETWORK & HOST NAME" settings, if you modify nothing and click "Done", it will finish normally, and could proceed with initial-setup. This issue only occurs when settings has been modified.

Please attach content of Journal from the affected system so that I can try to debug the issues. Initial Setup logs to Journal quite heavily and there might be other messages of interest as well (eq. from network manager, etc.).

Thanks in advance! :)
