Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 623937
Network doesn't start on installed system

installation log files (Server variant)
On installed system:
[root@system1 ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
Manual installation in virtual machine with network installation source.
I configured network just for an installation (as I did it with previous builds), that was dhcp configuration.
Not even network manager starts it automatically.
This is different behaviour in comparison to previous versions.

Marian, could you please post also /tmp/ifcfg.log grabbed from install environment before reboot? This is inconvenient, I should to send a patch for copying it to installed system as other log files.

anaconda.syslog extracted from the archive
It seems that NM is not loading ifcfg-rh plugin (see bug #620823), so network is enabled even for our initial ifcfg file containing ONBOOT=no, and therefore it is not enabled later which would be done by writing out ONBOOT=yes to ifcfg file.
Dan, do you have any idea why ifcfg plugin wouldn't be loaded in recent builds? See comment #4 please.
Interesting. Network configuration dialog is not even displayed. Network is started in advance. When installer is asking 'Choose a Language' network is already up.
Maybe related to change introduced in Bug 617860 or something similar.
Radek, does the system have /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf, and if so, what's in it?
Yeah, so the issue here is that NM stopped shipping a deprecated config file (nm-system-settings.conf) in the RPM and now ships NetworkManager.conf, and I did not anticipate that the anaconda image creation code would need to be modified for this change as well.
anaconda-13.21.72/scripts/mk-images: cp -a $IMGPATH/etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf $MBD_DIR/etc/NetworkManager

In snap #12:
# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
ifconfig shows interface is up. ping command works. Moving to VERIFIED.
