Last modified: 2016-05-10 16:32:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Network interface cannot be enabled by using only system-config-network.
Manual editing of ifcfg-eth0 is required to set NM_CONTROLLED=no
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ensure you don't have NetworkManager running
2. run system-config-network and edit eth0, set static IP
3. service network restart
eth0 is not enabled, as see on ifconfig
eth0 is active
a) overwrite NM_CONTROLLED parameter when using system-config-network-tui
b) system-config-network should ask if user wants NetworkManager to control the interface yes/no

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development. This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. Product
Management has requested further review of this request by
Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red Hat
Enterprise Linux release for currently deployed products.
This request is not yet committed for inclusion in a release.
Version system-config-network-tui-1.6.0.el6.3-2.el6.noarch has checkbox "Controlled by NetworkManager". You can uncheck this and then it sets NM_CONTROLLED to no.
# grep NM_CONTR /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
