Description Tim Taiwanese Liim 2007-11-11 05:13:28 UTC
Description of problem:
    NetworkManager starts DHCP client for all types of interfaces,
    even for those with static IP address.  This is very bad for
    servers, where static IP is much desired, and NetworkManager
    really helps to maintain network connectivity.

    Related to bug374861, issue #1
       1.  Network Manager will not connect using STATIC ip addressing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ifconfig eth0 down
2. NetworkManager --no-daemon
3. ifconfig eth0 up
Actual results:
    NetworkManager starts dhclient and changes eth0 IP.

Expected results:
    eth0 should keep the static IP address as assigned
    by "ifconfig eth0 up".

Additional info:
    work around for servers that requires static IP:
    disable NetworkManager, by using system-config-services.
