Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 375481
NetworkManager should not assume all links are DHCP enabled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:21 EST
Description of problem:
NetworkManager starts DHCP client for all types of interfaces,
even for those with static IP address. This is very bad for
servers, where static IP is much desired, and NetworkManager
really helps to maintain network connectivity.
Related to bug374861, issue #1
1. Network Manager will not connect using STATIC ip addressing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ifconfig eth0 down
2. NetworkManager --no-daemon
3. ifconfig eth0 192.168.47.228 up
NetworkManager starts dhclient and changes eth0 IP.
eth0 should keep the static IP address as assigned
by "ifconfig eth0 192.168.47.228 up".
work around for servers that requires static IP:
disable NetworkManager, by using system-config-services.
