Description Jonathan Steffan 2007-07-01 22:20:42 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a bridge setup for KVM. eth0 and vmnetX are in br0. Well, I like using NM
for all my VPN stuff, but it refuses to leave eth0 alone and insists on running
dhclient for me.

Version Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a bridge
2. Add interface to bridge, assign IP to bridge
3. Start NM
4. Watch your bridge members get managed by NM
Actual results:
NM reconfigures my interface(s) when I don't want it to.

Expected results:
NM leaves my bridge interfaces alone.

Additional info:
I've tried adding IPADDR= to eth0 to try and trick NM into thinking to
leave the interface alone. No go.

you want NM_CONTROLLED=no in your sysconfig interface file
Comment 2 Jonathan Steffan 2007-07-02 12:44:39 EDT
Thanks! Where is this documented? I'm not seeing it in the initscripts
documentation. Also, when I set NM_CONTROLLED=no for eth0, I am unable to use NM
for vpn anyways.

It's not in the initscripts for F7, it's read only by NetworkManager there.
