Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 473001
system-config-network saves invalid NETMASK in ifcfg-eth0 file
Last modified: 2008-11-27 07:45:21 EST
Description of problem:
Run system-config-network, edit the configuration for eth0, assign a static IP, e.g.:
Subnet mask: 255.255.254.0
Default gateway address: 10.20.204.1
Save the updated configuration. Now, view /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth0, and see that the gateway value has the wrong data (I think it's just a duplicate of the gateway field from memory).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have the same problem. Netmask gets overwritten with value of gateway address.
I have the same problem. Netmask is overwritten by value of default gateway.
