|Platform||x86_64||OS||Rocky Linux||OS Version||8.6|
|Summary||0000171: Network Card Goes Down after a few minutes ... Misconfigured on Install|
|Description||Did a fresh install from DVD, Configured network card on the Installer. Filled in the necessary parameters in Network configuration (IP Address, mask, DNS...). |
After booting I logged into the system via SSH. After a few minutes the session freezes. I logged from the console and noticed the network interface was down. Tried to bring it up from nmtui, without success.
After a few times this happend I went to run "journalctl -xe". I've noticed messages from DHCPCD. Then went again to nmtui. I've noticed that the network card was configured in "automatic" but had the parameters of manual configuration.
|Steps To Reproduce||Do the install. Configure Network card from the installer. keep the configuration in automatic (DHCP) and fill in the parameters needed for manual configuration.|
|Additional Information||Need to check this on RHEL 8.6.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I continued investigating. Today I had a freshly installed RockyLinux 8.6, network wasn't configured during install. I've fired nmtui and did manual configuration. On purpose I've keep automatic and provided manual configuration parameters (IP/Mask, default gateway and DNS). Got the same behaviour.
Did screenshots that attached to this note. I'm now thinking that this might be a network-manager Issue, not an Installer bug.
Thank you for the report.
This doesn't appear to be a bug and is normal behavior with network manager (where the configuration stays "automatic" despite filling in static data). If you are configuring a static address, you generally should set the method to manual. On the command line for example, you would use `nmcli con mod <interface> ipv4.method manual` to ensure that this is the case. Otherwise, auto is the default. This is the case whether you're doing it from nmcli, nmtui, or the installer.
I don't understand this as a bug too, mostly misfeature. I wouldn't realize of this if I did it in a network with an active DHCP server.
I think that at least the graphicall installer shouldn't let you fill manual values, when you choose automatic.
It took me several minutes to find out what's going on.
