Description Ales Kozumplik 2011-04-20 12:37:59 UTC
Description of problem:

I have this reproduced with systemd+anaconda, hard to tell if it manifests elsewhere. Also showed this to jklimes who confirmed this looks weird.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. let networkmanger activate a network device with
2. comment out BOOTPROTO, and set ONBOOT and NM_CONTROLLED to "no"
3. observe via 'ip addr' the device went down
4. change the file back, that is uncomment BOOTPROTO and give yes to ONBOOT and NM_CONTROLLED. save the file once
Actual results:
there's a log message in syslog saying 'ifcfg-rh: parsing ...', but the device is not brought up.

Expected results:
the device is configured via dhcp

Additional info:
It is sufficient at this stage to open the file in vim and just save it again with ':w' to trigger NM to bring the device up.

This is a regression in NM 0.9. I've tested that on F14 (NetworkManager- and there's no such problem.
