Is there a bug with Fedora 23 and unmanaged network devices? I am trying to configure a server and as soon as I place "NM_CONTROLLED=no" in my ifcfg-enp4s0f0 and ifcfg-enp4s0f1 lines, the devices are not active after bootup. If I issue a "service network restart" it will then make them active. "nmcli dev status" shows that they are unmanaged so I know the line is doing that.
I have been using Fedora for many years and really don't think I am missing anything. I even went as far as to place "NETWORKING=yes" in /etc/sysconfig/network as is necessary in the older versions. Nothing seems to work where the interfaces are up once it's finished booting. I need to issue a service network restart command (which I know redirects to systemctl commands but I have not gotten used to it's syntax yet)
Is anyone else seeing this problem? Am I missing something? I really don't think so, but am all ears if anybody has any suggestions. All I have done on this installation since installing is issued a dnf -y update. That's all.
Hardware is an Intel PSL5000 mainboard with 2 E5450 Xeon processors. Doubt that is relevant info but thought I would include it.
Any suggestions from the crowd? This seems like a major issue that would be quickly recognized by the community but all my searching seems to suggest changing ONBOOT to yes fixes the problem. But apparently not in this case. I have even hooked up a switch to the port so it sees a link, thinking maybe it will not up the interface if there is no link present, but still no joy.
