RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Fixed In Version: NetworkManager-1.32.0-0.4.el8
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
.Support for pause parameter of `ethtool` in NetworkManager Non auto-pause parameters need to be set explicitly on a specific network interface in certain cases. Previously, NetworkManager could not pause the control flow parameters of `ethtool` in `nmstate`. To disable the auto negotiation of the pause parameter and enable RX/TX pause support explicitly, use the following command: ---- # nmcli connection modify enp1s0 ethtool.pause-autoneg no ethtool.pause-rx true ethtool.pause-tx true ----

Hi Marc,

Do you know what should I do if I would like to add document for this bug like https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/configuring_and_managing_networking/assembly_configuring-ethtool-coalesce-settings_configuring-and-managing-networking ?

Thank you and sorry for miss the doc planning.
