Network Manager is managing networking via a service.Originally it was designed for GUI logins where you would login as a user as part of the login, network manager would be run to setup the network (typically using dhcp). Now it seems Network Manager is much more expanded. Refering to the link below, section 1.9 refers back to the static network config, which cobbler implements: 1.9. NETWORK CONFIGURATION USING SYSCONFIG FILES.

Note this section:


In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, the default networking service is provided by NetworkManager, which is a dynamic network control and configuration daemon that attempts to keep network devices and connections up and active when they are available. The traditional ifcfg type configuration files are still supported. See Section 1.8, “NetworkManager and the Network Scripts” for more information.

So I think cobbler uses the older/static way of configuring networking, using the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts config dir.

I am not sure what is planned for future versions of cobbler?

I suspect you may need to include post kickstart snippet for using network manager, or figure how to do the teaming using the older method?

Will there be teamd support in cobbler? or how can i deploy rhel7
machines with teamd config on cobbler.

I know nothing about teamd.  What needs to get configured on a
target machine?
