RFE: NetworkManager should not touch bridge interfaces
Last modified: 2008-04-10 16:36:09 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):
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
NM reconfigures my interface(s) when I don't want it to.
NM leaves my bridge interfaces alone.
I've tried adding IPADDR=0.0.0.0 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
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.
