Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 988916
NetworkManager is wrongly enabled
Last modified: 2015-12-02 08:34:04 EST
Description of problem:
ovirt-node makes no use whatsoever of NetworkManager. Currently vdsm networking experiences issues when NM is running. Thus, it is advisable that it would be disabled on the node image.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.drop to shell using F2
3.systemctl status NetworkManager
fixing in ovirt-node-plugin-vdsm instead of core ovirt-node
Why are we limiting ourselves to F19? I would prefer to block NetworkManager until vdsm plays nicely with it, be it F20 or F21.
my preference is to handle this long term in ovirt-node directly either by removing NetworkManager completely or ensuring that it's disabled by default.
I'd also argue that vdsm could (should?) disable NetworkManager if it's a problem for vdsm...

Our problem with this is that users may want to disable NetworkManager as long as they intend to play with host configuration via oVirt, but later re-enable NM.
We should consider changing the kickstart file for ovirt-node to have -NetworkManager, no reason to ship it with the node.

Not supported on ovirt-node (you can't enable/disable services like that)

We're looking at using NM apis for working with network config in the near future, so removing it long term is not an option, disabling is.
